I will never forget having the opportunity to train with Stan (as a CPO Trainee). He corrected my mistakes while never making me feel like I “should not have made them to begin with”. To say that he was fun to work with is an understatement! Stan was quick to “bust my nuts” and would just laugh if I gave it back to him. His Chicago highway philosophy was “just keep up with the flow of traffic” …as we did 85 down the expressway. It just made sense- everyone else was doing 85 too! Lee, Jason and Janelle should have comfort in that they were loved – and always with Stan. He talked about you frequently and was very proud to talk about your accomplishments (big or small). I was lucky to have known and trained with this man!
“”His Chicago highway philosophy was “just keep up with the flow of traffic” …as we did 85 down the expressway. “” That was how he taught me to highway drive. Thank you for the comment.
I personally not met Stan though loved and impacted by all who new him. Will be greatly missed.
I worked with Stan when he was a dispatcher at Salem, IL PD. He was a good man and great dispatcher. Had many conversations with him.
