Stan and I became best of friends when he started Lincoln School in the 5th grade. Stan had the biggest smile, freckles and an accent that others made fun of until we became friends, no more picking on Stan. During Junior HIgh we would ride our bikes to the junior high.I lived the farthest from the school so I would start riding my bike first to pickup Gary Whatley, then picked up Stan{on his JCHiggins bike), next its was Randy Phair, then to Phil Craig's to start our race trip to the junior hIgh. Swimming, bowling, football, whiffleball baseball, trips to the park and Arroyo stream, lots of sports in school, summer after summer with lots of bike riding, tons of talk and fun, fun ,fun. In high school Stan became involved in sports and we were not as close. I will always remember the last days of high school and Stan coming up to me and appoligizing that he didn't spend that much time with me, He was very emotional and I was very touched. I was very excited when Stan by chance met my son at the L.A.Airport and we talked on the phone and then later we again met at the reunion. Stan was a great person with heart of gold.

Wonderful memories of Stan, David. Sorry I wasn't part of your bike cruise to the junior high. I always walked.. I don't know why I wasn't smart enough to ride my bike.
