It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stan Stoklosa of Pincher Creek, AB on November 19, 2019. He was 75 years of age.
Stan was born in Hillcrest, AB on May 8, 1944. Along with his siblings, he was raised to appreciate family and friends, and to be steadfast in his convictions.
Growing up in the Crowsnest Pass, Stan developed a great love of the outdoors and spent countless happy hours camping, hunting and fishing. He also enjoyed fly-tying and smoking specialty meats. Stan believed that it was important to be an involved and productive member of society, so was very active in the community. Over the years, he belonged to the Hillcrest Fish and Game Protective Association, Trout Unlimited Canada, the Liberal Party of Alberta and Canada, and served on town council in Claresholm, AB from 1971 to 1986. Not only was Stan a man of integrity and principle, he was also kindhearted and compassionate. He will be incredibly missed and forever remembered.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his brothers, Joe (Janina) Stoklosa of Burnaby, BC and Tony (Gail) Stoklosa of Coleman, AB; his sisters, Sophie (Doug) Wilson of Calgary, AB, Louise Makky of Calgary, AB, Helen Poulton of Lethbridge, AB and Eleanor Stoklosa of Coleman, AB; his nephews, Greg (Roberta) Makky, Curtis Makky, Kevin (Sandra) Stoklosa and Mark (Luanne) Stoklosa; his nieces, Angela (Adam Letourneau) Poulton, Natalie Ruzek and Rachel (Mark Goble) Poulton; his great nephews, Justin, Jaxon and John; his cousin, Michael Blasiak; as well as his extended family and many friends, especially Michael Velosa and Jergen Heilmann.
He was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Josephine; and his brothers-in-law, Julius Makky and Robert “Bob” Poulton.
A Memorial Service will be held in May 2020. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the charity of your choice. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfunerlachapel.ca.
