On Saturday, October 26, 2019, Stan passed away peacefully in his sleep at St. Paul’s Personal Care Home, at the age of 86 years. Stan was born Wednesday, October 18, 1933 in the community of Pine Creek, Manitoba. Stan called many places home over the years, Camperville, Moose Lake, Dauphin, Winnipeg, and The Pas.
At the age of 17 Stan decided to join the army and spent his 18th birthday on a ship heading for Korea. Stan served with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry for six years before retiring from the army and taking up carpentry. From carpentry Stan went to work for the Department of Justice as a Court Communicator, assisting aboriginal people with the court system. Stan was well suited for this job as he was fluent in both Saulteaux and Cree.
Stan is survived by his daughters Nicole Guiboche (The Pas), Michaela Guiboche (Langley BC); sons Dax Guiboche (Winnipeg), Joseph Guiboche (Vancouver); grandchildren Jonathan Guiboche (Langley BC), Justin Doucette (Fort Saskatchewan Alberta), Shae-Lynn Harvie (Winnipeg); brothers Albert Bercier (The Pas), Ted Bercier (Crossing Bay), Ernest Bercier (Moose Lake), Melvin Bercier (The Pas), Dennis Bercier (Winnipeg), Tom Bercier (Moose Lake); sisters Olive Hillier (Flin Flon), Margaret Schoenhaar (Vancouver), Doreen Willis (Riverton), Jeanette Bercier (The Pas), Patsy Bercier (Cadotte Lake, Alberta); and many nieces, nephews and relatives too numerous to mention.
Stanley was predeceased by his wife Ida; father Napoleon Guiboche; mother Mary; step-father Baptiste Bercier; brothers, Norman Guiboche, Joseph (Emery) Guiboche, Howard Guiboche, Albert Syne, Joseph Bercier, George Guiboche; sisters Marie Bercier, Louise Bercier, Virginia Guiboche, Mabel Guiboche, Helen Guiboche, Lillian Crowhurst.
