Stanley was born to George and Harriet Bighetty on Sunday, March 3, 1946, in Duck Lake, Manitoba.
Most of the years were spent in High Rock with his family and friends, they call home away from home.
Stanley, along with his siblings grew up in humble settings in which he would never forget. As a young man, Stanley found his love for Mother Nature and it’s abundance that gave him the tools and skills to survive off the land.
Stanley lived most of his earthly days at High Rock, Manitoba and also had a camp at Eden Lake in which he’d gather wild food and medicines. Stanley was a natural trapper, hunter, fisherman and medicine gatherer. He would often teach the grandsons what he could.
Stanley enjoyed the company of family and friends. His favorite time was when the hunters who would travel down river for their annual hunting trips. He would greet them with a hot cup of tea and most often than not, a warm meal that would go with his stories of long ago and it never failed to hear good hearty humour coming from Stanley. He gained many wonderful friends, those who knew Stanley will remember him with great respect and fond memories.
Stanley unexpectedly made his journey to the Happy Hunting Ground, May 27, 2019. It is a beautiful reunion in Heaven today as Stan meets the love of his life, Emily today.
Stanley is survived by his brother Bruno (Beverly) Bighetty; sons Cory (Amila) Sinclair, Raymond Johnston; stepsons Kenneth Charlotte, Edwin Sinclair; brothers-in-law Eli McDonald, Mathew Fontaine, Adam (Gloria) Richard, Wally (Evelyn) Sinclair, Edwin (Shirley) Sinclair, Lazar (Margaret) Sinclair; extended family Angus (Pelogie) Linklater, Maryann Dumas, Marlene (Celestine) Colomb, Adaide (Jimmy) Bighetty, Rita (Lazar) Bighetty; nephews Mike (Barb) Dumas, Patrick Dumas, Willie (Georgina) Dumas, Norman (Isabelle) Dumas, Dennis (Lynn) Dumas, Fred Dumas, Trevor McDonald; special grandsons Ruben Cook, Bruno Castel, Marcel Bird, Lloyd Bird, Edwin Sinclair, Stan Sinclair, Ryan Sinclair, Charlie Baker, Nathan Sinclair, Clayton Sinclair, Marl Sinclair; nieces Suzanne Caribou, Shaquia Sinclair, Lydia (Arnold) Laliberty, Veronica (Kenya) Dumas, Mary Ann (Rick) Shephard, Nora (Trevor) McDonald, Charmaine McDonald, Mary Castel, Linda Castel, Racheal (Brook) Bighetty, special granddaughter Deloris Sinclair; special daughters Shannon Sinclair, Tory Sinclair, Shaddy Sinclair, Annabelle Sinclair.

If we forgot anyone it was not intentional.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay,
A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands put to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
Uncle Stan you will be missed.
