Stanford Wilson, 1949–2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing
of Stanford on Monday June 26th, at the age of 74.

Beloved father to his three children;
Sheena, Brandon and the late Terence.



Stan spent 35 years as a food inspector for the federal government and then retired with pleasure to his property in Hinchinbrooke, creating his own piece of paradise and a large pond in it.



A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2023
at the McGerrigle Funeral Home in Ormstown,
from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Following the visitation you are invited to join the family

    May You find Your Peace
    in a tranquil setting.
    Rest Well Uncle.


    As Sheena’s high school friend the first time I met Stanford it was mandatory that I go with him and take a tour of his woods. Why? because he kept it picturesque by always cleaning out the dead or dying trees and keeping only the healthy beautiful ones. This became a very funny thing because whenever any new friend of Sheena’s, Terrance or Brandon’s would come over they would all have to take the tour before being allowed to step inside the house. I remember one party that Sheena was hosting where she had so many new people over that every time Stanford came back from giving a tour he’d go right back out with some new people who showed up. That lasted all afternoon! He also wasn’t a stranger to parties and would always join the fun. The last time I spoke to him he was talking to me about this new whiskey he had tried which he couldn’t stop talking about I told me I had to try it, for it was both inexpensive and great tasting. So tonight I’ll have a shot in your in honour of Marker’s Mark Whiskey! Rest in peace Stanford you will be missed but not forgotten.


    Our deepest sympathy to all his family. We always enioyed Stan when he was doing ROP testing
    Rest in peace Stan

    I’m so sorry to hear of Stan’s passing. We went to school together and Stan was always friendly and cheerful with everyone. Although he had many trials during his life, I really believe he will be at peace now and has left a special memory to his family with his Paradise pond.


    So long, my brother. You can now have peace and nothing to bother you again and who knows (I do not) maybe be with Terrence again.
    Thanks to Jim for what you said.


    I lost my oldest friend. We went through a lot together as neighbour country kids do. We played shinny on a flooded corner of his father’s hay field; rode bikes when he could get away from chores – or so he could get away from chores. We hunter woodchucks over a lot of country and dug wild garlic in the maple bush on the old Blair farm. We cut a lot of wood together in Dad’s bush and sweat buckets loading, stacking, unloading and again stacking 75-pound hay bales in his father’s loft in any kind of heat. And don’t get me going on cutting alder brush and picking rocks. He had a special personality, and he was overly competitive, but we appreciated each other and from where we came. We called each other near our birthdays because we could never remember the exact dates. I won’t get your call for my 75th birthday Stan, but I’ll remember and maybe I’ll even shed a tear. Goodbye my friend.


    I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to Stan’s family in this time of great sadness.
    We were always invited to the Hinchinbrooke property in the 90s. Stan and Robin with their children, Sheena, Brandon and Terence were the most welcoming family and the best friends anyone could wish for.
    Thinking of you all,
