    Several of my childhood memories were of Stan and Barbara. I loved going to visit them. We always had a great time. He was like a step dad to me. He was an amazing man. I will always remember him. I know him and my dad are paving the way up there together for the day we all get to be together again. You will be missed.

    Sad to say but this guy was a fraud in so many ways. He told people he was a Viet Nam Veteran and stated to many he served in the Marine Corps with the Special forces. This was a complete fabrication. A FOIA request was completed and stated this man never served in any branch of service. They even had a flag at his funeral knowing this was false.
