The course has run.
The race has won.
I’m on my way.
After a life well lived, we announce the peaceful passing of Stanley in his 95th year at Brampton Civic Hospital. He is now reunited with his wife, Dorothy (2002). Beloved father of David (Teresa), Susan Pugliese (Frank), Hazel Armstrong (the late Tony), and Alan (Cheryl). Grandad to Andrea (the late Jake), Crystal (David), Lindsey, Anthony, Annette (Ryan), Justin (Nicole), and Alexandra (Chris). Great-Grandad to Jacob, Payton, Corbin, Keira, Logan, Bryson, and Landon. Stan was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Doris and his sister Margaret Jackson.
Truly a ‘jack of all trades’ Stan enjoyed a varied career, from teaching vending machine repair at Sheridan College, to working as a technologist for Canadian Gas Research. One of his proudest accomplishments was bringing his greatest passion, the sport of Speedway racing to Canada and completing a book “Speedway Training Notes” which can be found online. He was inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2006. Stanley enjoyed his retirement years travelling with Dorothy to places like Florida, Arizona and Australia when he wasn’t at a speedway race. He was an active member of the Dunlop Seniors Centre where he loved to dance and play in their dart league .
