Stanley Gordon Wilson

June 5, 1936 - November 4, 2014


Stan was born to Donald and Olive Wilson on June 5, 1936 in Port Arthur, Ontario. He moved to New Denver, BC as a teenager with his parents, where Stan graduated from Lucerne Secondary School. He loved dancing and was a much sought after dance partner. He sang in the Anglican Church Choir and enjoyed a broad taste in music. He worked for the Province of BC in New Denver, Prince George, Nanaimo and Quesnel, retiring after 35 years in Court Services. Retirement brought him back to New Denver, where he volunteered his time with the Silvery Slocan Museum and rose garden, and the Kohan Reflection Gardens. Stan loved the flowers that grew in his own garden, especially his roses. He was honored to be Citizen of the Year in 2009. He always enjoyed the daily visits and coffee with friends at The Apple Tree and Nuru Coffee Bar. Stan loved to travel and family often teased him about his willingness to jump into any vehicle going anywhere. Family was important to Stan and he kept in close contact with his many, many nephews and nieces, great nephews and great nieces. He passed away peacefully in Kelowna on November 4, 2014 with family at his side. Stan is predeceased by his parents Donald and Olive, his sister Thelma Clarida and brothers-in-law James Clarida and Jack Weselake. He is survived by his sister Charlotte Weselake, and brothers Malcolm (Mae), Don, William (Rowena), Lloyd (Kay) and Keith (Jacquie). He is fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, their children and grandchildren.
