One of the good guys for sure.  He will be missed.  So sad.  But I'm happy for the chance to have known him.
Best,
Carl

Another wealth of information lost to the ages.  I will pray for his family in their time of need.  Rest in peace, Stan.  Another buddy gone to the great relic field in the sky.

Didn't know him personally, just bought a few bullets from him. Rest in peace, Stan. Thoughts are with his family.
Later,

I credit Stan with getting me fired up on the hobby second time round.  I had the privilege of living near him for the last 8 years and actually having a good conversation with him a couple of hours before his death.  He was a good husband, father, and friend.  Ask anyone.

      time to move this post down to the ' remebering the great ones " section.    I did not know him, but it sounds like he was a stand up guy. I'm sorry for everyone that knew and dealt with him.......

Though I never met him, I had the pleasure of buying several things from Stan over the last year... even up to last week actually. Once had a package get lost in the mail (at no fault of his), that he offered to refund or replace at his loss. It wasn't much, but tells you a lot about the kind of guy he was. Thoughts and prayers with his friends and family. RIP Stan..

Carl or Mike, I agree with the plumber with this entire thread needing moved to "Remembering the Great Ones". Can one of you or some computer guru have this thread relocated to the appropriate heading. These are great posts and I would hate to see any of them lost.
