He was a two-time military veteran serving proudly as a merchant seaman in the U.S. Maritime Services during World War II and as a Sergeant in the U.S Army during the Korean Conflict. 

Upon completing his Army service, he was employed as an Electronics Technician at Quonset Point, at New London, Conn. Navy Lab, then at the Naval Undersea System Center in Newport, where he retired after more than 30 years of civilian government service. He continued to work as an Electronics Technician at McGlaughlin Research Company for several years thereafter.

He also had served as Treasurer of the North Tiverton Senior Citizen’s Club (North Tiverton Fire Barn). Stanley enjoyed traveling, the beach and dining out all around the Southern New England area.
