Peacefully at University Hospital on Thursday September 13, 2018
Stan passed away in his 71st year.
Dear husband of Margaret (Walsh) of 44 yrs.
Son of the late William (Bill) and Edith Froude.
Very proud father and father in-law of Lesley (Paul) Medeiros, Lisa (Jeff) Johnston, Peter Froude and Jamie (Grace) Froude.
Loving Grandpa and Papa of our wonderful grandchildren
Brandon and Carter Medeiros, Mark, Jennifer and Erica Johnston, and Haiden Froude .
Grandpa, Papa so loved spending time with each of you. He was interested in your lives, your achievements and your future.
Brother of Eleanor (Steve) Zaranik, Jim (Linda) Froude, Barbara (Bob) Field.
Brother in-law of Arla and Jim Walsh, Marybeth and Paul Haywood, Cathy and David Walsh, Diane and Rob Shortridge, Margaret and Kenneth Walsh and Lois and Kirt Steeves.
Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and good friends.
He always had a love of animals especially Lulu, Molly, Ripley, Gracie, Daisy, Chloe, Georgia, and Molly Sr.
In his younger days, he assisted with the organization of Mary Immaculate Church 1st Youth group along side Pastor
Father Roy. Stan was a Eager Beaver coach and mentor. He played baseball, liked to fish, loved the beach, golfed and played cards. He was a chauffer, hairdresser, candy man, cook and a story teller. For the little ones, he would perform his magic coin trick, and he loved to see their little eye's light up 'do it again' was usually their response. And, yes he did it again, and again.
Stan retired from Canada Post after 33 years of service. During his retirement he did odd jobs for anyone who needed help. He was a fan of the Montreal Canadians, London Knights and the Toronto Blue Jays. He was the ultimate garage sale shopper. If you were looking for something all you had to do was ask Stan. He brought smiles and amazement when he presented that certain 'treasure' you requested. You could always count on him.
He was a collector . He was Santa to many.
Stan had been hospitalized and struggling with his health for the past six months. He was ever optimistic and worked to regain his strength. His wish was to come home, which he accomplished even though it was only for a few weeks. Although he wasn't able to maintain his health, Stan lived his life to the fullest and on his own terms. He will always and forever be in our hearts and memories.
Stan has requested no funeral service. Cremation has taken place.
Please join our family as we celebrate our beloved 'Stan the Man'
