More recently he was a member of the Faith Alive Fellowship Church in Spring Mills. He served as a Treasurer and Deacon and sang in the choir at the former.
Stan was an avid Philadelphia Eagles and Penn State Nittany Lions fan. He was also a car and motorcycle enthusiast, involved in sports car clubs, owning multiple Harleys, transporting cars for local dealerships, and driving the local Amish community. Stan was a genuine soul. He loved the Lord and he loved people. He had the gift of gab, and there wasn't a stranger in the world who couldn't be his friend. His biggest success in life was his children. He couldn't be more proud and had no problem telling perfect strangers how successful his kids were. He was equally as proud of the spouses they chose. But his true love was Teresa, Married over 50 years, they experienced so much and endured the ups and downs of life together, with Christ as their cornerstone.
