Mounce, Stanley A
With great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, devoted father, and proud grampa on November 28, 2005. He passed unexpectedly in Cusco, Peru while pursuing his love of travel. Stan is survived by Lorraine, best friend and wife of 48 years, daughter Corinne (Byron), son Graeme (Ailsa), grandchildren Conor and Niamh Henry, brother Donald (Cathy, deceased), nieces Kirsten and Meaghan, and extended family and friends.
A native of Cumberland, Stan was born in 1934 and attended the local elementary and high schools. He began teaching in 1957 at Bevan and within six years was principal at Glacier View School, a position he went on to hold at several other local area schools. Stan loved and made the most of his retirement and always kept busy whether helping friends, picking raspberries, or driving milk trucks throughout the Valley. He enjoyed traveling with family and friends, but always relished coming home where he could often be seen walking around the Air Park, relaxing in Tim Horton’s, or cycling to Union Bay. Special times often included fishing with Graeme and Don, playing with his grandchildren, and golfing with friends (some of whom witnessed his recent hole-in-one).
Stan will be greatly missed. We are grateful to our wonderful family and friends for their love and support; heartfelt thanks to Larry and Isabel for all their help while in Peru.
Memorial Services will be held at Comox Valley Funeral Home & Crematorium, 1101 ryan road, on Monday, December 5th at 1pm; reception to follow at Crown Isle Golf and Resort Community. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in the name of Stanley A. Mounce to the North Island College Foundation, 2300 Ryan Road, Courtenay, BC, V9N 8N6.
