When we first moved to New Sweden, he and his family were one of the first to welcome us. He always had a smile and a special way of caring. When you look out over Madawaska Lake you may see him in the clouds. May God embrace you Stan as we all do also.
Stan, may you rest in peace.
I have wonderful memories of Stan. He was always so kind to all of us crazy kids coming in for penny candy, hotdogs/hamburgers and sodas. He always seemed genuinely happy to see us. The lake just isnt the same without him there. He will be missed by many. My condolences to his family
You will be so missed
My Deepest Sympathy
My deepest sympathy goes out to Stan's family. My heart is full of such fond memories of riding my banana bike to Stan's on a hot summer day for that glass bottle of strawberry soda, or a bag of penny candy. It was a place to gather, and just "be". Anyone was welcome, anytime. I think that is what I loved most about Stan's. It was a place where everyone knew your name, and I could just be myself. Thank you for the memories, Stan. They will stay forever tucked away in my heart

With our sympathy
The Lake was never the same after Stan left. Missed by many. Our condolences to the family.
The Brewer family had the pleasure of being Stan’s neighbor for over 15 years at Madawaska Lake. On a cold winter day when the power went out there was no place better than Stans “Home of 10c Coffee” to warm up by the gas lamps with hot coffee, hot dogs, or even better a Stan’s Special.
On the 30th anniversary of Stan’s store my parents Dan and Barb gave Stan a placque inscribed “congratulations on 30 years”.
Too many good memories to share.....
Thank-You for your community service Stan!
Rest in Peace
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Stan has meant a lot to me . I will miss seeing him at my church each week. I will miss chatting and his funny comments. I can’t believe this is all real. As a child I loved going to his store at madawaska lake. My prayers are with you all. Thankful to know I will see him again in Heaven one day
