Stan and Muriel moved to Hartford in 1956 when he became employed by Hamilton Standard division of United Technologies, a position that became his lifetime career of 50 years. In his 40s he added another “career”–running. He ran 12 marathons including Boston-twice, and New York, and placed well in a number of shorter races. From his mid 60s to his early 80s he played on the Beth El Temple softball team. He was an avid Red Sox fan and an absolutely rabid Boston Bruins fan. Stan also enjoyed reading, live theater, and classical music, especially symphony. Stan was one of the good guys–he was always ready to offer help to anyone who needed it. He will be missed.
