Born February 15, 1948 in Victoria, BC to Ted and Dorothy Miles, Stan enjoyed fishing, camping, black powder, raising sheep, and his beloved appaloosa horse, Lacy. Stan spent most of his life on Vancouver Island and relocated to Kelowna almost 10 years ago.
Stan retired 2 years ago and was looking forward to traveling with his wife, Vanda, and in their home on wheels. An avid craftsman, Stan was always coming up with something unique. He will mostly be remembered for his jokes.
Stan’s family would like to extend a thank-you to the nurses and care aids at the Central Okanagan Hospice House who made him comfortable in his last week and a very special thank-you to Dr Prozesky.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 3:00 pm at the Recreation Room at The Gables, 1249 Pacific Avenue, Kelowna, BC.
