Stanley MULLIGAN

MULLIGAN; Stanley Elias


Mulligan, Stanley Elias – Born in Glenavon, Saskatchewan, September 16, 1924 and was raised in Rainy River Ontario along with brothers Nelson, Alden (both deceased) and sisters Eileen, Norma, and Carol by Ethel Morrison and Cleveland Mulligan. Stan moved west to Hope, BC while working with Emil Anderson Construction, a family company he served from the age of 18 to 63, moving from office manager to secretary treasurer. Stan met Edith Jarton, she as a nurse and he as a patient at St. Paul’s Hospital, and later they married in 1953 raising Ryan (Barb), Greg, Roger (Fiona), Reg (Colleen). Dad and Mom love their grandchildren, Arienne, Chantelle, Brandon, Megan, Lynnaea, Nicole, Mariah, and Colin and continue to smile upon them. Dad has lived a long and meaningful life full of love and family. In his prime he loved to snow and waterski with his kids and most of all he enjoyed golf with family and friends. Dad, with Mom, was a great dancer, and they especially enjoyed square dancing in later years. Dad’s last few years were a struggle with communication and memory, but as a gentleman he endured quietly and patiently while having fun playing crib and snooker. We thank the staff at Pacifica Seniors home for assisting Dad with friendliness and kindness. Likewise, we are very grateful for Ramon, Margaret, Beth, and Rosendo for helping Dad out with such compassion. We also appreciate the doctors and nurses at Peace Portal Hospital who were so friendly and gentle. We especially thank God for the gift of Dad! Mass of Christian Burial will be said on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 10:00am at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 2250 150th Street, Surrey. Interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Chilliwack.
