A World War II veteran, he served in the U.S. Army and Air Force for five years, ultimately working as an Aerial Photographer for the Air Force. This experience sparked a lifelong passion for photography and travel.

Stanley received his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at the University of Michigan. Upon the completion of his degree, he moved west, eventually settling in Mountain View, California. Stanley spent his career as a Counseling Psychologist for the Veterans Administration.

Stanley was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Maxine Goldstein. Together they raised two daughters, Judith Schwarz and Anne Peterson (Robert). Stanley is also survived by grandsons John Schwarz, Brendan Peterson, (Britney) and Dennis Peterson, as well as his niece and nephews and their families and dear friends Gene and Zita Zukowsky.
