Dear ALVA Members, It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Barry Stanton. I have no doubt many of you would have known him. We were notified of these details from Barry’s son Darren, and wanted to pass them onto the membership. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
As you may have already heard, Dad passed away early on Sunday morning with my mum at his side. He’d been living with mild Parkinson’s for the past ten or so years and hadn’t been feeling well for the last few weeks. After being admitted to hospital and undergoing tests, his condition declined rapidly and he died from renal failure on the 21st January, two days before his 77th birthday.
Dad had an endless amount of stories of life on the road during his career. He loved telling them and we loved hearing them.
My family and I would like to invite any and all who knew him to join us in celebrating his life and bidding the Big Boy a final farewell.
His funeral service will be held at 12:30pm Wednesday 31st January at the Hillside Chapel, Palmdale Crematorium, Palmdale Road, PALMDALE, NSW.
