He looked forward to changing the church bulletin in the marquee outside the Methodist church. Stan enjoyed the sled rides his dad gave him with a long rope behind the truck going down residential streets.  His nieces fondly remember their Uncle Stanley’s encyclopedic memory of phone numbers, detailed observations of everyday discourse, love of Pepsi (in a glass bottle), and playful teasing during Sunday visits to Grandma Boehm’s.  Another remembers his smile lighting up a room. There is a recollection of a sweet-natured, giving man, as well as one with a sweet tooth.  Upon hearing of a company visit he would whip up a sheet cake to share.  He enjoyed art, music, photography, and chatting with friends, family and strangers.  Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, January 24, 2022 at Worthington Funeral Home with Rev. Stacey Tomich officiating.  Interment will follow in Rushville City Cemetery.  There will be no visitation.  Memorials may be given to Rushville First United Methodist Church.
