Stanley served his nation in the United States Army Field Artillery from 1943 until 1946 in the Pacific Theatre. He worked for US West for 36 years and retired in 1982 as a Regional Planning Manager for Colorado and Wyoming. Stanley was very active as an adult leader with the Boys Scouts of America for 25 years in several capacities and was awarded scouting's highest adult recognition; the Silver Beaver, in 1970 for outstanding service as a Scoutmaster in Broomfield, CO. He loved to fish and camp in the mountains of Colorado with his family. He was a skilled woodworker and there wasn't anything he couldn't fix. Stan had a wonderful sense of humor and quick wit. He was also an avid fan of the Denver Broncos. Stan and Carolyn moved to Albuquerque in 1987 to be near their daughter and four of their five grandsons and also to live in a more moderate climate. In 1990 Stan volunteered as a greeter at the Rio Grande Zoo and later that year became a trained docent at the Zoo. He continued as a Zoo Docent and an Aquarium Docent until his death. The Mayor appointed him to the Aquatic Park Advisory committee in 1991 and he served until 1994 when he was appointed to the Biological Park Advisory Board where he served 2 years. In 1993 Stan founded the Albuquerque Aquarium Association, the fund raising group for the new aquarium being built. He served on the board of directors from 1993 until 1998. He was the elected President from 1993 though 1996 and was appointed an Honorary Life member of the Albuquerque Aquarium Association. He wished to be remembered by two words "he cared". Stan is survived by his wife, Carolyn of 64 years of marriage, whom he married in Raleigh, NC. He has two children; Rick Wilson and Kristin Risley, and their five grandchildren.

WOODS -- WILLIAM E. Chief Master Sergeant William E. Woods, U.S. Air Force (Ret.), passed away peacefully, Thursday, March 15, 2007. Bill at times was also affectionately known as "Woody" and while serving with the United States Air Force in Japan picked up the Japanese nickname "Kuma-san," which roughly translates to "Mr. Bear" - a found reflection to his size and stature. During almost thirty years of service to our nation, Bill performed a variety of duties, including being part of a highly select cadre of airmen hand-picked to fly perilous and dangerous special Security Service missions as one of the USAF signal reconnaissance "backenders." Bill served during the Korean War, Vietnam War, and throughout the Cold War. His final duties were as a First Sergeant, the Commander's principal advisor on all enlisted matters, for the 1550th Field Maintenance Squadron at Kirtland AFB. He had a keen enthusiasm for shooting trap, skeet and bird hunting. The mighty "Kuma-san" is survived by his devoted and wonderful wife of over 53 years, Kay; lovely daughter, Cheryl; sons, Bill, Mark, and David; and a growing legacy of 13 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Graveside Services will be held Friday, March 30, 2007, 2:30 p.m., at Santa Fe National Cemetery. French Mortuary 1111 University Blvd. NE (505) 843-6333 www.frenchmortuary.com

You would love him.
