  2. Baem family.. I am so sorry for your loss , prayers to all . You don’t know me but, I’ve never seen baem spelled as ours is . I believe my husbands father , Albert Baem(whom passed many years ago) and Stanley’s dad George we’re brothers . My husband never new any of the Baem side beings Albert passed when Gary was only 9 . It’s sad that Stanley lived in same town all these years and never knew each other 😞
    Again, so sorry for your loss

  3. Stan was the most genuine, kind hardest man I knew. His weekly greetings of a joke or two followed by the handful of gas saving slips and a you’ll be back later, right, Will be missed along with his smiles when he spoke about his family. He always shared his adventures especially during our lunches over the years. A great man has gone to watch over us all. Know that I was with you in spirit as his celebration of life unfolded. My heartfelt condolences to the Baem family.
