Stan was a good friend from both grade school and high school.  We first ran into each other again after high school in basic training for the Air Force in San Antonio Texas.  Stan was not definiitely not conforming to Air Force training but managed to muddle his way through and became a computer programmer for the military.

I again visted with Stan for an afternoon in Olympia, Washington in 2008 while he was on his way home from visiting his brother Wayne in Seattle.  At the time Stan was teaching at the largest comunity college in the US in Las Vegas and he taught every mathematics couse that the college had to offer by heart.  He definitely enjoyed his chosen occupation.

He had his name legally changed from Stanely Dubois VerNooy 3rd to just plain old Stan VerNooy because that's the kind of person he was.

We maintained our friendship over the years via email and I always enjoyed his contrary, but incorrect, opinions.

Stan was a one of a kind person and will be missed....

Some of  my favorite times in highschool were the hours spent in the music practice rooms with Stan and some other friends.  I will surely miss him.  If you were priveleged to know him, you know he was one of the most intelligent and funny people in the school.  I'm pround to have been his friend.   Rest in peace Stan

I'm really sorry about Stan's passing. We had recently re-established contact. Stanley was a wonderfully bright and engaging guy, and his mom was terrific too. Stanley was a true geek, in the best sense of the term ... before it became part of the vernacular. We went head-to-head in Mr. Recchia's chemistry "password" contest. He was great fun to be around, and I'm sure, as a teacher, he touched many lives. He will be missed.   Ed B
