I was the Executive Director of the Manitoba Curling Association from 1983 till 1993 and had many,many meetings with Stan and he was so knowledgeable about curling which was a great help to me. My deepest sympathy to the family - Stan was such great man. I remember on various occasions when we were calling a meeting in the city he would remind me that the distance from Glenboro to Winnipeg was exactly the same as the distance from Winnipeg to Glenboro ! Both I and my wife Pearl have many fond memories in our associations with the Big Man.
