He moved to Yankton April 3, 2003 where he lived and received services at Ability Building Services.
One of Stan’s favorite things to do was sing his favorite songs from Johnny Cash. Stanley had a wonderful singing voice and everyone enjoyed hearing him sing. He also enjoyed quoting his favorite television shows such as Red Skelton, Petty Coat Junction and Lawrence Welk. Stan liked the classic Disney shows and movies such as Mickey Mouse Club and Snow White. Stanley liked trains, especially the whistle of the train. Stan loved going for rides especially on nice days. He also loved going out to eat with his friends. He enjoyed visits from his sister and brother-in-law, Syrolla and Marvin. Stan had a wonderful smile that could brighten anyone’s day. He would give hugs to the special people in his life.

He is survived by one nephew Ken (Lori) Haase of Parkston, SD; two nieces Cindy (Mark) Coe of Grand Island, Nebraska and Jo Auch of Pierre, SD; and all of his friends and family at ABS.

I think of Stan and smile every time I hear a train go by. He was a great man to know.

Stan was always full of laughs. Will miss his "whistle while you work" comment at work.
