Stan was an enthusiastic and long standing member of the Second Violins. He joined in 1982 and his last concert was in 2016, when he decided to leave for health issues.
Stan was also a committee member for some years. Not only did he love the violin but, as a skilled craftsman, he used to make his own violins. He ran evening classes where a number of orchestra members learnt the craft and went on play them. Stan was always supportive and welcoming to new members. Stan passed away on Monday 17 January 2022 at the age of 92.
In his will Stan left a legacy so that all Orchestra members, past and present could get together to have fun, This meting was held at Upminter Golf Club on 7th September 2022.
He will be sadly missed.
