It is with great sadness we announce the passing of William Stanley (Stan) Schoultz on Saturday July 23, 2011 at the age of eighty-five years, in Vernon, BC. Stan will be lovingly remembered by his wife Dolly, daughter Lana Inglis (Jim), granddaughters Megan and Robyn Inglis, niece Terri Miller (Mike), nephew Kevin Bilodeau, sisters-in law Debbie Young and Corrine Millar (Ron), nephews Darryl Littlejohn (Brenda) and Chad Littlejohn, as well as very special younger nieces and nephews: Sheila, Darren, Courtney, Kimberly, Shawn, Bryan, Chelsea, Dallyce, Alana and Krysten. Stan is also survived by his Ontario family, sons Wayne, Wesley, David and daughter Luanne, grandchildren: Christopher, Megan, Cassidy, Jonathan, Jessica, Joceline and Joshua. Stan was predeased by his father William George, mother Anna, brother Earl, sisters Olga, Willie and Marie, sister-in-law Joyce and nephew Jordan. Born in Escanaba, Michigan, Stan’s family moved to and lived in Ontario near Blind Bay when Stan was very young. A World War II veteran, Stan served overseas and returned to Ontario where he worked in several industries before settling on carpentry where he found his niche and developed master craftsman skills. In 1972, Stan met his wife Dolly and her daughter Lana and in ‘74’ they made their move to BC. Several times they moved from the Okanagan to northern BC and Alberta, where Stan worked setting up oil camps, building homes and finally in Fawcett Lake, Alberta, he and Dolly ran a fishing resort until the desire to be near their granddaughters brought them back to Vernon for good. In his later years Stan turned his carpentry skills to helping friends and making wonderful displays to make his granddaughters’, nieces’ and nephews’ Halloweens and Christmases special. A Celebration of Stan’s Life will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2011, 2:00PM at the Elks Hall (3103 – 30 Street, Vernon, BC.). The family requests no flowers but would be honored by donations in Stan’s memory to the North Okanagan Hospice Society 3506- 27 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4.
