I wasn't a pal of Stan and I doubt that he remembered playing several rounds of golf with me at the Newport golf course. He was a great golfer.. he was a patient man who always played for the next shot. Invariably, he was putting for birdie or par. He was always on the green "in regulation".

I will always remember my best lessons in "playing" golf were from him. I considered it a privilege to play with him.

To all the Willey family members: I am very sorry to learn of Stan's passing. It is always a difficult time to lose a loved one, but right here at Christmas is especially heartbreaking. May memories of happy times comfort you all. He was a dear man.....
