Stan and I became friends at the Sherborne St John Social Club and through our mutual love of music from Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd and many others, we became friends. Had some great nights and fantastic conversations with this wonderful human being and I will miss him dearly. In the words of his favourite bands, on your next journey my friend 'Shine on you crazy diamond, on your 'Stairway to heaven'

From the beginning you have always made me feel welcome in the family sharing your amazing stories of London, drumming and all the amazing things you have done in your life. You are an amazing man, dad, grandad and great grandad, I’m sorry we weren’t around but you will always be a well known name in our house and Daisy, Reggie and Ashlea will definitely know about their crazy great grandad ❤️

I was very young when I first met Stan. Him and my Dad were part of the Pavilion Theatre Group, and I used to go along to rehearsals at the theatre. He was always so nice to me. I saw him in town last year and reminded him of those times and he remembered me.
