KOREN, Stanley (Stanko) - Born July 9, 1931 in Slovenia and passed away October 15, 2012 at Health Sciences North. Beloved husband of Vera Julia Kaczmar. In 1958 he met Vera Kaczmar at Johnny's Lunch in the Donovan. It was love at first site and they married in May 1959 and have been married for 53 years. Loving father of Stanley Jr. (Irene Bezzubyk), David (Madona Skaff) and Gregory (Evelyn David). Cherished grandfather of Alexander (Sudbury), Sarah (Ottawa) and Riley (Toronto). Dear son of Jacob (predeceased 1940) and Ana (Kanalec) (predeceased 1944) Koren of Slovenia and grandson of Janez and Katarina (Zuaneova) Koren. Dear brother to Mimi (Amiens Fance), Angela (Nantes France), Jozef, Anica, Pepca, Rozi, Pavla, Cvetka (Slovenia), Alojz (Rome), Franc (Fuzine Italy), Lojza (Jaroslaw Romanynzyn Sudbury) and Marija (Max Ursic Port Alberni BC). Special uncle to Jerry, Stan, Maiko, Dario, Helena, Valeri, Cheryl, Darren, and Greg in Canada and to many nephews and nieces in Slovenia. As a boy Stanko would wander, explore and climb the trails into the Julian Alps in his homeland. He would bring goats and cows to a high mountain valley and graze and herd them there for the summer. He then immigrated to Canada to first work on a farm in Caledon Ontario. After 3 years he moved to Toronto for a short time and worked for the Gerrard Bedding Company before moving to Sudbury to Work for Inco (Vale) and Veteran's Cab. He practiced many trades for Inco (Vale) before becoming a crane-man in the main converter isle in the Copper Cliff smelter. He achieved 35 years zero injury on the job. He retired after 40 years service where he made many friends which he always spoke of fondly. He was a member of St. Clements and now Our Lady of Hope church. He also sang with the Slovenian choir at Canada Day celebrations and the Christmas around the world concert. Stan enjoyed gardening and would share his seedlings and vegetables with family and neighbours. He also studied carpentry while in Slovenia and enjoyed woodworking. Winters would find Stan skiing right in the hills in his backyard in the west end in Sudbury. He hiked in those very same hills the rest of the year right up to a month ago.
