Stanley Siegner, 1922 – 2010, passed away peacefully on December1st. He is predeceased by his loving wife, Phyllis in 2001.
A veteran of WW11, Stan proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navel service from 1942 – 1946. He was married to Phyllis Lillean Perry, March 20th, 1948 in Victoria, BC.
Stan worked as a head sawyer at the Honeymoon Bay and Youbou sawmill for many years. Upon his retirement, he meticulously cared for his gardens producing beautiful roses and huge tomatoes. A fond remembrance is the 9 pound potato that he discovered growing up in his compost. That incident got him notoriety in the local paper.
A man true to his word, Uncle Stan lovingly fulfilled his promise to his wife to care for their 2 family cats until their death.
The family would like to acknowledge Ellen Andersen, a good friend and neighbour, for her tireless efforts making it possible for uncle Stan to remain in his home until his death. Also, thank you to Dr.. Froese for his after-hour visits to care for uncle Stan’s medical needs.
No service by request. Uncle Stan will be cremated and laid to rest beside his wife Phyllis at Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens. Friends and family are invited to share refreshments at the home of Rick and Sandy from 2:00 – 4:00 PM, Thursday, December 9th, 6290 North Road, Duncan, BC.
