They moved to Oliver in late 1998 and got involved with the Senior Center playing in the Volunteer Band for dances every Saturday morning.
Stan and 3 other members formed a band they called the Valley Toe Ticklers and entertained at dances for several years.

Stan’s greatest enjoyment in life was playing his guitar and doing carpentry work.
