Born in Lambertville, Stanley was a lifelong resident. An independent carpenter and contractor, he owned and operated Stanley’s Service, Co. for 40 years before retiring 5 years ago.

He read poetry and studied history. A gifted musician, he often wrote songs for family members and, as a young man, played guitar with a band of his friends called “The Noblemen”. He was a skilled craftsman and woodworker and enjoyed surprising his grandsons with his handcrafted toys. He loved tinkering and could often be found working on his 1989 Corvette. With his beloved wife of 45 years, Bonnie, Stanley enjoyed wintering in Florida, visiting the Jersey shore, attending concerts and an occasional trip to the Borgata.
