Edward George Stan, born March 26, 1935, left us peacefully on October 20, 2022, surrounded by his family. He was loved by his late wife, Sylvia Stan (nee Meyer) (February 16, 2022). He was the treasured father of David (Cathy) Stan, Kevin (Marcy) Stan, and Lisa (Vance) Delaurier. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Ed was the son of Elena (nee Bancui) and George Stan, who raised him along with 10 siblings in Dysart, Saskatchewan.
Ed had many accomplishments throughout the years. He was an incredible entrepreneur, owning a successful business, and he built a small hobby farm. But, not only a hobby farm; a home, where cherished memories were made.
He was everything you could ask for in a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Legacy is not about leaving something for people, it’s leaving something in people, and that is what he did. Ed was building relationships even at the end of his life.
We are thankful to the caring staff at Chartwell Parkhill Long Term Care Residence and specifically, Dr. Whynot, who was very helpful during this entire process. And to everyone for their kind words and support during this time. The cremation has already taken place. Cremation & Celebrations, ARVA entrusted with arrangements.
If you’d like to pay your respects, we will be hosting a celebration of life, honoring Ed, on November 5, 2022, at 200 Broad St, Parkhill, ON, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, with a ceremony, reuniting Ed and Sylvia beginning at 12:00 PM.
If desired, a donation can be made to the Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners or The Humane Society London & Middlesex.
Rest easy, Dad.

This is so late , it would be my third attempt. From my heart I recall Uncle Edward as a caring and kind human being. He and Aunt Sylvia lifted mom’s spirit on more than one occasion. Please know we loved and cared deeply for both of them. They are very much missed.
Kathy Perna says
Uncle Ed and Aunt Sylvia…..two of the warmest, most hospitable, welcoming, kind and loving people you could ever know. Corn roasts at the farm, Uncle Ed’s shop and laughing with Kevin and Dave, Lisa trying to follow us around!! Such great memories. My mom always had a special place in her heart for her little brother and his wife and I know why, they were a very special couple. I can’t seem to talk about Uncle Ed with including Aunt Sylvia, they were one to me and hopefully they are one again.
Love and hugs to all
Kathy, Gilbert and Family

David, Kevin and Lisa and your families,
Please accept our deepest condolences in the loss of your dad and mom. They brought some much needed joy to our mom (Margaret) when they invited her on their RV trip. They were truly beautiful people. We shall miss them dearly.

Ed Stan was my uncle, my best friend and was even like a father to me. We traveled together and made amazing memories. We always had so much fun and were always laughing together. Going to the farm and being with him was very special to me. The nickname he gave to me stayed with him to the end. Eddie was my life line to my Mother and I will always be grateful to him for his unconditional love and support. I’ll always love you and miss you.
Rest easy Uncle Ed
Your niece Judy
