Stanley Winton THORN


Stanley Winton

July 21, 1927 – June 12, 2014

Stan passed away at the Intercare Southwood Care Centre in Calgary on Thursday, June 12th, 2014 at the age of 86 years. Stan was an honest, hardworking man with a great sense of humour. He was generous with a caring, gentle side, quietly helping people in need. He was a hotel man through and through, ending his career in 1994 when he retired after successfully running the Arlington Hotel in Red Deer for 18 years. He was predeceased by his father, mother, and three brothers and by his wife Doris in 2002, an event he never got over. He will now be fulfilling his dream of being with her again. He is survived by his five children; Karen (Glenn), Patti (Gary), Grant (Wendy), Dave (Kathy), and Murray (Cheri), eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren, all of whom he touched in his own way. Stan had a love for duck hunting with his brothers, winters in Arizona, card games, golfing after retirement, and his numerous cars, trucks, and motor homes. He and Doris had great memories of a few special trips they took together as well. He loved his food (“if that’s dinner, I’ve had it”, followed by switching to his not so tight pants and a snooze), wanting to go out for dinner, even in his final days. Stan is now moving on to a place he wanted to be, with Doris and other special people in his life. A Memorial Service will be held at Eventide Funeral Chapel, 4820-45 Street, Red Deer, on Monday, June 16th, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Memorial donations in Stanley’s name may be made directly to the Canadian Diabetes Association, #06, 5015 48 Street, Red Deer, AB T4N 1S9.
