Stanley spent his entire life running sheep, cattle and farming hay. He spent tenure on the board of MVI during the construction of McPhee and the Towaoc Canal. He also sat on the board of the BLM for SW Colorado and Grazers. He loved his land and cherished the time he spent in the mountains at his cabin. "Stanley was known as my Grandpa but to me I felt as though he was a father. He was a tough man who taught me everything that he knew. He always had a story about some place or something no matter where we were. I will always cherish the memories. I will miss him very much!" Love, Lonnie "I am so thankful for having Pops in my life. He was very giving and was always there for our family. He supported our kids in whatever they chose to do and was always so proud of them. He loved them very much. Our family has been so thankful to live in his childhood home with all of his memories and now ours. The times that meant so much to him were spent in the mountains at Ground Hog at his cabin with friends and family. He had many stories to tell and we will always remember them. I will miss him every day, God Bless you Pops for everything you have done. I love you." Love, Karen "As my Stepfather he always treated my children as his own. They spent many years in his home with him and their Grandmother "MIMI." My son looked upon his as his father figure and grew very close to him. He will miss him but always remember him. They both shared a great love of the Ranch, land and Livestock." Goodbye Stanley, Carol "He was a tough man but had the biggest heart in the world. He would help anyone he could. He loved his family, his sheep and the mountains. I will cherish every story and every conversation we had." I Love You Pops, Your great-grandson, Nathan "Pops was the most stubborn man I ever knew but he was the kindest most generous person that I have ever been around. He always had a story about anything and everything that was ever talked about and could remember anything that was said between us. He was always involved in what I was doing with my horses and rodeo and was always there for support. I am very thankful for everything that he has done for my family and I. I will always cherish our memories with him. I Love You Pops. Love Always, Hayley
