June 30, 1929 - October 2, 2022
In loving memory ~
Stan was born on June 30th, 1929 in Youngstown, Alberta and passed away peacefully on October 2nd, 2022 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 93 years.
Stan was one of eight children born to Frank Orld and Beatrice May (Coates) Hampton and at a young age came with his family to West Arrow Park where he greatly enjoyed his youth living in the beautiful, rugged outdoors of B.C. In his early working years Stan was involved in the logging profession. Later he found his niche when he discovered his love for the agricultural industry and he became involved in farming, ranching, driving livestock freight trucks and eventually ending his long working career as a Brand Inspector. Stan was a resident of Vernon since 1965 and he enjoyed his life to the fullest. In his retirement years he still kept himself busy by creating beautiful birdhouses, enjoying his garden and was fortunate enough to be able to remain in his own "castle on the hill" taking care of business......right up to a week before his death.
Stan will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his son, Bart (Linda) Hampton of Strathmore, Alberta; one brother, Bob (Lala) Hampton of Likely, B.C.; two sisters, Beatrice Hampton of Victoria, B.C. and Marion Routley of Surrey, B.C.; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by an infant son, Gordon; his beloved wife Helen; and four brothers, Bill, Murray, Herb and Orld (Spud).
The Funeral Service was held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Thursday, October 6th, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Dr. Teresa Charlton officiating. Interment followed in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Stan to the charity of their choice.
