Paul Gordon Stanley was gifted to this world January 8, 1967. He barreled through our lives with laughter, mischief and love ... lifting us, and our spirits off the ground endless times. He had the gift of halting the world and truly being present for his family and friends. He taught us not to quit; to never fail because you laugh and try again.
Paul is survived by his love, integrity, loyalty, curiosity and love of learning. We have all been swept through our lives with him by his dynamic, bigger than life personality and it was a beautiful ride.
Paul leaves behind, but will always be with, Laurie, Sarah and Michael. He was the much loved son of Jean and the late Robert Fagan, and Allen Stanley. Paul was a gift to his sisters Pam Barnes and Maria Zaban-Stanley, and brothers Marty and Stuart Stanley. Paul was also loved by his Mother and Father in law, Dawn and Dennis Vavra, and Laurie’s brother and sister and his many nieces and nephews. Paul will always be remembered by many other family and friends, whose hearts he stole a piece of.
