As a minister in the United Church of Canada, Stan served congregations in Alberta, Quebec and Ontario, and currently was providing pastoral care at Dublin Street United Church in Guelph.
Stan’s joys were his family and friends, his cottage on Otter Lake, stimulating discussions and oil painting. Time with Stan was an invitation into the joy that is life and a vision of what life can be.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial service to celebrate Stan’s life will be held at a later date to be announced. Arrangements are entrusted to the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL 519-822-0051 / www.wallcustance.com.
Memorial contributions to Dublin Street United Church, Guelph or St. Paul’s United Church, Dundas would be appreciated.
A tree will be planted in memory of Stanley A. Wootton in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest
