Stan and I were in grade school together. In a simpler time, it was an adventure to ride my bike clear out to Saratoga Lane to visit him. But the real fun began when you got to his house. He had a good imagination and always came up with some kind of activity, cowboys and Indians, army, or sometimes we would play Alamo at an abandoned house in the neighborhood. We grew apart when the 60's happened. But I'm sure that playful side was evident all through his life and that it made him to be a joy to be around. My sympathies to all the Artmans from Saratoga Lane and to Stan's wife Jean. I'm sure he will be missed and the world seems a bit dimmer just hearing of his passing.
