MONAGHAN, Bernard Francis STAN December 28, 1930 – April 1st, 2020 Late of Harrow. Beloved husband of the late Anne-Marie. Loving father of Danielle and Desmond Ste. Marie, Beth and Rene Paron. Loving “Poppa Stan” of Aidan, Liam, Juliette, Gabriel and Declan Ste. Marie, Natalie and Daniel Paron. Dear brother of (the late Jenny and Clare Connelly), (the late Helen and Ken Mowry), (the late Betty and Harold Hatton), (the late Phillip) and Sue Monaghan, Patricia Sinclair and (the late Neil), Roseanne and Roger Fowler and Vince and Pat Monaghan. Dear Uncle to many nieces and nephews. In a life dedicated to service, Stan began as a Lasallian Brother, teaching for nearly 20 years. During this time he graduated from the University of Ottawa School of Social Work, putting his training to work with Catholic social services organisations in Windsor, eventually becoming Professor of Social Work at the University of Windsor. He did extensive training in the Ohio Institute of Gestalt Group Therapy and further at the Western Institute of Group and Family Treatment in Watsonville California, becoming a highly respected and regarded Psychotherapist. His true passion was helping people to help themselves and he continued to do so until his very last year. Stan’s life was grounded in unwavering faith and a very deep love for his family. He maintained countless friendships over the years, placing the utmost value upon them. An avid reader and accomplished author, Stan published several academic books for Social Work as well as two novels. He was a member of Kingsville Golf & Country Club for over 45 years, reluctantly relinquishing his membership in his 89th year. Blessed with a good sense of humour and a beautiful voice, he loved to laugh, socialize and sing to lift the spirits of those around him. The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude and indebtedness to Rosemary O’Connell, a very dear friend who made his wish of staying at home both possible and a wonderful experience. We wish to thank all of the healthcare workers with special mention to Gena, Alyssa, Chuck and Tricia. Lastly we would like to acknowledge all of the small acts of kindness by so many of our dear friends. You made more of a difference than you can ever know.
