They traveled to Hawaii and Europe and made annual pilgrimages to Yuma in the winter in their RV. In Port Orchard Stan sported a power boat on the bay. A doting husband, Stan supported Lucille in all of her endeavors whether it be gardening, trips visiting friends in California and Oregon, weekends at local casinos and, of course, caring for Paul. They were married for 65 years, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary at St. Gabriel’s church. Always a gentleman and gracious to all he met, he and his wife made many friends during their travels and retirement, Memorial donations to Franciscan Hospice.
