KULKA, Stanley Phillip July 9, 1933 - November 13, 2009

Stan passed away at the age of 76. He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Jeannine; four children: Cathy (Thanasis), Ken, Shauna and Glenn (Moriko); seven grandchildren: Catlin, Constandinos, Kayley, Electra, Kennedy, Laura and Jaxson.

Stan was a skilled and competitive athlete; as a catcher (semi-pro) in the 1950's, (continuing through the decades) as a Gold medal winner, at the World's Master's Seniors Games, in Slow-Pitch in 2005. Stan played every single game, as if it were the World Series, always giving it his all.

He was a reserved and quiet man, by nature; but, known for his infamous 'one-liners'.

He will be deeply missed by all of his family and friends, and warmly welcomed by the 'Big Diamond in the Sky".

At Stan's request, no funeral will be held. Hainstock's Funeral Home & Crematorium, 780-440-2999. Honoured Provider of Dignity Memorial.
