My condolences to you and the family. Stan & I played many rounds of golf here in Sun City a few years back and I want you to know that I have never met a finer gentleman in my life. He was considerate and thoughtful of everyone. Stan was one of the first to contact me when my son had a heart attack and offered his assistance in any way possible. It goes without saying that I'll never forget that

Thank you Stan for all that you did to make a wonderful life with Patty so much better. Thanks for embracing Karen, it meant so much to know it was ok with you for me to move on. And thanks for all you taught us, by instruction, stories, and your example. To Pat, I know how much you are hurting, may your faith in God give you comfort.

With many memories of a loving and careing man I offer my condolences to Aunt Pat and all who were embraced by his love. He did a lot for all the people that he met throughtout his life. May love and peace be with you all. -- Clem Chirpich

I just learned today of Stan's passing. I am Bob and Helen Franden's daughter, Elise Wilkinson. I remember the visit to my Dad here in League City in 2006 right before my Dad passed away. I was so impressed Stan was still driving and looking so young. I send heartfelt condolances to Pat and all family members. Mom and Dad dearly loved him and enjoyed his fun stories.

Part 3

In fact, if I could only choose a word to describe Grandpa I would pick "classic". Grandpa has set a standard of hard work, excellence, and calculated risk that is a high calling. However, his moral excellence and uncompromising adherence to right and wrong are even higher callings.

A final word on Grandpa and his love for all of us: Grandpa did not choose to express his commitment to all of us with the most warm and fuzzy demonstrations.

Part 2

You better believe that we ate pie that morning. I will never regret it.

Some of my favorite childhood memories were of visiting Grandpa and Pat's lovely home in Kansas City, MO. I think I must have worn through several swimsuits sliding down the spiral slide that dumped into the pool. It was like a playground swinging on the big swing in the backyard where my Mom and Dad fell in love, attempting to get a hole in one on

To our extended Raczynski Family-

I have debated back and forth in my heart about joining all of you at tonight's Honoring Dinner. If I were not already traveling on the East Coast, I would certainly be there with you. I will miss each of you as collectively we honor and celebrate Grandpa.

While Grandpa is known by so many for his business savvy and creative mind, I prefer to remember him for a few of his more simple "habits". I find
