My Uncle Stanley as a happy little boy.
I remember him as a cool guy. He drove a sporty car. Even his job was cool–he worked at ABC in New York and later WCAU Channel 10 in Philly as a producer. He did adventurous things like going on African Safaris, Europe and skiing. As a kid I thought he was really tall and rich and fun. He and his wife, my Aunt Lana, were the most glamorous couple in the world to me living in a big house on Long Island. Their lives seemed so amazing. I remember wanting to live like that when I grew up.
When he died, he had an Irish wake and his ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii. How’s that for fun, cool and adventurous!
