I saw the news on another thread and quickly came over here. Heaven has another wonderful angel. Rest in peace, our beloved Ranger Stan.

RIP Ranger Stan

I have been away from the boards and the groupies thread for a very long time. Life can often get in the way but when I read on Facebook tonight that Ranger Stan had passed away I had to come post in the place where I knew everyone could appreciate what a special person he was.

My daughter and niece are devastated at this news. To them meeting Ranger Stan at the Lodge was better than meeting Mickey.

Our prayers go out to his family and all the groupies who are mourning this great loss.

Ranger Stan

Just wanted to say that one of the biggest reasons we recently decided to add-on at VWL was because of something Ranger Stan told me a few years ago (long before we were DVC Members). At the time we were staying at Wilderness Lodge. It was our first visit there and we signed up to take the Lodge Tour. He nodded in the direction of the Villas and told me "there is no place on Disney property where you will get a better night's sleep". I promised him some day we would return to give it a try. Wish I could tell him now that we own points there because of him. We are looking forward to getting that good night's sleep for many years to come, thanks to Ranger Stan. Don't think I will ever visit WL without thinking of him! God Bless...

I also was never blessed to meet Stan but had hoped to one day.

Rest in Peace Ranger Stan.

Could there be a better tribute?

The only thing we would put ahead of checking in when arriving at The Lodge was looking for Ranger Stan and his great look of WELCOME he offered you. Oh how we will miss that. The stays at The Lodge will never be the same.

I never met Ranger Stan, either. But I felt I knew him based on what I read on this thread.

RIP Ranger Stan.

I remember well the first time we met Ranger Stan. My mom was with us and it was her first ever visit to WDW. We stayed at AKL and then BWV that trip but we wanted to show her some of the other amazing resorts, especially WL. When we arrived Ranger Stan greeted us at the door and ushered us into the lobby. He made us feel so welcome! That feeling continued with every visit to WL/VWL and while I love the resort as much as ever, it's just not the same since he retired. And now this sad news...

Rest in peace Ranger Stan.

Hey folks
We are in Atlanta for a couple Braves games.

I spoke with Carolyn yesterday(Stans sweetie) and she seems well under the circumstances. She told me how Stans passing has affected so many lives, in a positive way.

They will be arriving in Penn. Sun and the service will be soon after. She will be staying in Atlanta area with family for awhile after.

It amazes me the outpouring of affection(not from this thread, I knew you folks would be like that) but on other forums. When anything was ever written about him before, very little response was given on other threads. Its nice to know so many remember him.

At a Braves game, really?

I took a peak at the online condolence book this AM. Lots of Wilderness Lodge/Ranger Stan friends posting.
Please give Sweetie our love next time you talk to her.

I wouldn't expect any less.

JT - I agree with Muush. Please send all our love to Stan's Sweetie the next time you speak with her.

Jimmy...enjoy the down time in Atlanta. Relax and enjoy the city and the games.

I too was glad to see the responses on the boards about Stan. At times, I felt like he was our own little jewel that others seem to have not noticed. Maybe because he wasn't dressed as splashily as Art the Greeter (who I thought was awesome as well). Maybe he never got the notoriety because WL/VWL just doesn't have as big of a following as the other resorts. But I could never figure out how someone could have met Ranger Stan and not be impressed and endeared.

I'm glad that Carolyn is doing well under the circumstances. She continues to be in our prayers.

I will sure pass along the sentiments to Carolyn. And I read the testimonies shared on his obituary site, and recognized a few groupies I've said before, and will continue to say, you folks are the best!!!!!!!

Oh No
I haven't been on in so long and I'm just heart sick to hear that he's gone.
I can barely type this.
