Stanford was born in Winnipeg on April 22, 1953 and grew up at Matheson Island until the family moved to Selkirk in 1969.
Junior was a hardworking man who made his living as a heavy equipment operator. He loved to live life on the road and take care of his family and friends. He also enjoyed spending time with his extended family, the Hourie’s. He will be sadly missed.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held once public health conditions will allow. Friends may pay their respects and visit with family on Wednesday, March 25 at the Gilbart Funeral Home. Due to the coronavirus and in an attempt to space visitations, please call Clinton for a scheduled viewing time 204-785-3235.
After the viewing, a service and internment will be held at 2:00 p.m. at St. Clements Cemetery.
The family would also like to thank the Nurses and Doctors at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre for their kind and compassionate care.
