his sister Cathy Proctor of Medicine Hat; sister-in-law Betty of Nova
Sadly Stan was predeceased by his son Norman; parents Louis and Doris
Haydu; sister Marg Payton; brother Jack Haydu; brother-in-law Bob Payton.
Stan spent his youth and most of his life in the Calgary area before moving
to Taber in 2007. Once the mayor of Cayley, a successful businessman, a
local firefighter and was most happy on his Burgman. Stan was always devoted
to his family and spent countless summer weekends camping, going for Sunday
drives and tinkering in the garage or shop. He was a kind, honest,
down-to-earth man willing to give second chances and the shirt off his back
to anyone who asked. A wise listener, he mentored troubled youth and always
had time to visit and share a cup of coffee. Stan was most definitely a
person who easily made friends wherever he went. All are saddened at the
loss of such a dear acquaintance.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Stan’s name may be made directly
to the Big Brothers and Sisters of Lethbridge, 622 – 6 Avenue South,
Lethbridge, Alberta T1J 0Z3.

    Heather and Family

    I wish all of you the best in these troubling times. Growing up next door to your family still brings back very fond memories. Stans energy and big smile was always infectious. I still remember donkey baseball and other crazy gatherings in Cayley. It sounds like he has touched many people with his big heart. That includes the little neighbor kid who used to play cars with his son on the dirt pile between our homes. I hope you are all doing well and wish all of you the best over the Holidays.
