Death Notice

Allan Stanley (Stan):
On June 23, 2020, at Christchurch Hospital after a short illness; in his 93rd year. Dearly loved husband of Carol, his wife in more than 70 years of marriage. Loved and loving father of John and Joan, Dianne and Donald, Andrea (deceased) and Maree, Allan and Donna, Wendy and David, Robyn and Kevin, Jenny and Mary, Susan and Graham, Peter, Michelle and Brett. Adored Poppa of his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Our grateful thanks go to his GP, Dr Paul O'Gorman and the staff of Ward 23, Christchurch Hospital. The old cobbler has banged his last nail, caught his last whitebait and told his last story. Our Totara has fallen and will be sorely missed. He is gone from us but has rejoined Andy, his mother and father and his brothers and sisters. Flowers respectfully declined but in memory of Stan, donations to the Cancer Society would be much appreciated. Messages to the Coleman family c/- PO Box 111-01, Christchurch 8443. A celebration of Stan's life and farewell will be held in the Academy Funeral Chapel, 65 Main South Road, Upper Riccarton, on Monday, June 29, at 10.30am.
