The Family of Stanley Arthur Oman regret to announce his passing on March 9, 2020 with his wife, son, daughter, and granddaughter by his side at St. Boniface Hospital.
He is Survived by his wife of 53 loving years Lena; sons James Oman and Family, Jason Oman, John Oman and Family; daughter Jennifer Oman and Family; stepson Gerald (Dino) and Family, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, many grandchildren, many great-grandchildren; in-laws and Friends.
He was born in Fort Churchill April 16, 1943, a brother to 6 siblings; Rennie, John, Albert, Horace, Charlie, Cathy, and Edna. Stan spent his early years in Churchill playing hockey, baseball, and Curling. He won many awards and trophies in that time. He befriended Gavin Laurie who later went on to be his best man when Stan Married the love of his life Lena on December 28, 1966. Gavin is hopeful that they all don’t end up in jail again like they did on Stan and Lena's Wedding day…most of you reading this will understand that joke.
Together Stan and Lena started to build their family in 1967 with the arrival of their first-born son James, in 1972 they welcomed their second son Jason and in 1973 their third son John. Then finally, they were gifted with their only daughter Jennifer, in 1974.
Stan had a knack for numbers, which opened door ways for him and ultimately led him to numerous locations throughout Canada; including The Yukon, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Ontario as well as many others. He always made friends quickly wherever he went and continued to stay in touch when he left.
Stan survived a massive heart attack in 2011 and was forced to retire. The following year he was diagnosed with Cancer, along with numerous other health issues that he continued to battle until the time of his death.
The family would like to send a special thank-you to the nurses, doctors and staff at St. Boniface Hospital for all of the hard work, care and compassion shown towards Stan during is stay.
