Patriarch and peacemaker, veteran CBC news anchor, journalist, foreign correspondent, author, humourist and peacekeeper, dad, husband, great friend. What a life! What an arc of life dad had! He was as colourful and dynamic as the comets he loved to paint as a young man. Dad had a beautiful mind and a beautiful heart and a sweetness that people responded to with love. He was easy to love. The world fell in love with him, his sparkling intellect and irrepressible humour.
We are having a celebration in his honour next Saturday. We wish Stanley well on his next voyage!
