Stan White N1TT / SK
« on: July 21, 2015, 06:39:01 PM »
It is with a heavy heart that I pass this news to the group.

Stan White  N1TT has gone SK

 For those in the group who didn?t know Stan, he managed the Boxboro Flea Market (single handed) and also worked to make Near-Fest a great event.

 He was a great guy and he?ll be missed.

Indeed Stan was a great guy and I am very saddened at the news of his passing.  I am sure that his many friends from the Boston/Lowell area will agree that NEAR-Fest just won't be the same without Stan. 

A commemorative N1TT (SK) button is currently in production.  They will be ready for wearing at Boxborough in August.

LOWELL- Stanley A. White, a longtime Lowell resident died Sunday July 19, 2015, on his 65th birthday, following a courageous seven month battle against Pancreatic Cancer. He was the devoted husband of Patricia M.(Lavin) White of Lowell who survives him.

Born in Shirley, MA on July 19, 1950, he was a son of the late Henry and Katharine (Smith) White.

He was a talented pastry chef who spent the last 15 years working at La Boniche in Lowell.

An avid outdoorsman, Stanley enjoyed camping, snow shoeing and traveling. Prior to his illness, Stanley was riding his bicycle up to 200 miles weekly. He was an amateur HAM Radio Operator and held membership in the Billerica Amateur Radio Society (BARS.)

In addition to his wife, Stanley is survived by his children, Timothy B. White of Lowell, Andrew P. White and his wife, Sarah of Lowell, Colleen A. White and her spouse, Draea Dufresne of Auburn, ME. Stanley was anxiously anticipating the birth of his first grandchild in November. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters-in-law, John F. Lavin, Jr. and Lucille Lavin of Haverhill, Anne and William Durant of Bradford, MA, Marie and Timothy Cusack of Methuen and Paul F. Lavin of Methuen; many nieces and nephews. He was the brother of the late James White.

Nice job on the buttons.
I'm sure Stan would like them.
The one event that I remember the most was Stan showing up @ Rochester (HossTraders) when we had the "Shmeg Pile"from John Roberts.
The WX could not have been worse, name it.
We were all under the "Big Blue Tent".
Stanley shows up with a 5 gallon pot of the best onion soup that I have ever tasted.
It brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it.
Thanks Mike

This was a blow to me - Stan was one of my best friends.

I'll always remember that dry sense of humour, The Three Amigos and Camp Stan.

He was a great guy and deserved better.
