Stanley was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 25, 1941. He attended Temple University and earned his MBA in Arizona. One of Stanley's greatest joys was traveling the world including his favorite places to journey to, Africa and Argentina.
An avid hunter and fisherman, Stanley was a skillful gamesman. He also enjoed reading history and economics books and his beloved Wall Street Journal. Stanley is survived by his partner of forty years, Inge Ferry. Together they built a life full of love, laughter and travel, spending months traveling the globe and weekends at their Northern Pennsylvania cottage before moving to Florida.
In Florida, Stanley's greatest pleasures were working in his vegetable garden and enjoying afternoons in the sun.

He was also a great grandfather to Felix Ferry, and Henley and Miler Rutherford. To make the circle of life complete, Miller was born on Stanley's birthday earlier this year.
