Stan, was born at Trapp Lake, B.C. on March 19, 1927. Stan worked around the Kamloops and Clinton area, at Stan Steele and Mound Lumber up until 1962. When he moved the family to the Bulkley Valley. He worked for Madigan Equipment in Telkwa and as a faller in the Houston area. For the many years until 1977 he worked as a mechanic at Mound Concrete. When Fred Shortreid sold Mound Concrete, he then went into business for himself. He started with a backhoe, and later bought gravel trucks and logging equipment. Stan was a very hard worker, who could fix anything. He enjoyed his work and at the age of 67 instead of retiring started farming. In 2004, Stan found out he had cancer, and decided to fight with major surgery. He recovered and returned to the farm that he loved, going right back to work until once again cancer returned. His, valiant fight lasted two months in which he never gave up the thought he would get home and farm again.
At Stan’s request there will be no services. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
