Stan was a wonderful soul who was strong, generous and kind. He joined the Navy at age 17, and was a proud World War II veteran that would have enlisted at 15 if he could. Those that knew Stan, know how blessed he was with the gift of gab. He was an amazing storyteller and had an uncanny memory and ability to talk about anything.
Stanford will be forever remembered by his sons, Barry Kestecher (Lynn), Lenny Kestecher (Donna), five grandchildren, Jason (Alisa), Alexa, Brett, Craig and Lacey Kestecher; sister Sonia Lederer, five nephews, and four nieces.
Stan will be reunited with his loving wife of 68 years Gertrude Kestecher who recently passed in January 2018 and predeceased sister, Rosalie Eckstein.
