elevated BAK7h DRUZINA, Stanko “Stan” 1932-2019. On April 15, 2019, God called Stanko home in a peaceful manner, with his family by his side. Stanko was born on January 2, 1932 in Gradisica, Slovenia. He is predeceased by his mother Franciska, his father Jozef and his siblings, Maria, Kristina, Joze, Silvana and cherished brother Karl and wife Marie. In 1955, he met the love of his life Gloria (Bozic). They were married in 1956 in Udine, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1957. Family was important to Stanko. He was a hardworking, loving father to Rich and John (Tara). His grandchildren Chantal (Josh), Michelle, Mark, Kyle and Kate remember him best for his never ending smile and unconditional love. Stanko will be forever remembered for his gentle eyes, soft smile and caring heart. His funny sense of humour made people laugh and feel welcomed. Stanko was many things, but more so a man who put others before himself. Stanko’s family would like to thank the staff of the Welland County General Hospital for their care and kindness.
