It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. Stanley passed away on April 3, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was the son of the late Alvin and Annie (Jollimore) Slaunwhite.
He is survived by his loving wife Nancy (Naylor) Slaunwhite; stepmother Marjorie Brophy; sons, Frank (Dianne), Stephen (Colette); daughters, Annie (Tony), Tammy (Paul); sisters, Mary, Sylvia, Kelsie, Ann; stepsister, Sherry; grandchildren, Tanya, Laurie, Justin, Calvin, Hannah and great-granddaughter, Summer. He will also be fondly remembered as "Gramp" or "Pop" by the many kids who spent their early years being cared for in his home.
Stanley enjoyed hunting, fishing and his hobby of running his own metal recycling business. He worked for the Labourer's Union for 37 years and then with Dalhousie University for 10 years until his retirement.
