Stan was a long-time member of Calvary Church. Family and friends are invited to a memorial service on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 3 P.M at Calvary Church, 1051 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster. Memorial donations may be given to Calvary Church’s missions fund.
My deepest condolences to you Ruth and your family. I learned so much from Stan that served me well over the years. I have wanted to stop and see you guys, but haven’t been down for a while, and when I do there are so many people to visit. I will always remember the time spent with your family.
Dear Ruth and family:
So sorry to learn of Stan’s passing. I know you will miss him so much but you will be forever together in your Heavenly home. God bless you. I don’t know whether you will remember me or not, but I used to be married to Ken Martin (Vernon Martin’s son) and we went to Calvary Independent Church. We visited your store a couple of times to get bowling supplies, shoes, etc.
