Stanley C. Giles, 75, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on October 27, 2017. He was born June 8, 1942, in Payson, UT to J. Milton Giles and Edna Mellor Giles. He met the love of his life, Pamela Joan Patton, in a fateful, chance encounter in Star Valley, Wyoming in 1965. Soon after he was buried alive in an industrial accident. Pam rushed to his side and has been there ever since. They were married July 30, 1966, at Christ Church and St. Michael's in Philadelphia, PA.
After his near fatal accident, Stan felt like everyday was a gift and he lived the next 52 years to the fullest. He had a love of flying, hunting, fishing, being outdoors and, more than anything, spending time with his grandkids. He spent much of the last several years sharing his Dutch oven cooking, riding his ATV through the red rock country of Southern Utah with friends and family, and best of all, hiking with his beloved buddy Maggie. He passed on his interests to his two phenomenal sons Chris and Michael, his beautiful "daughters" Robin and Michelle, and his five amazing grandchildren, Makendra, Madison, Macie, Ryan, and Cameron. He loved his family more than anything, as they do him.
Everyone who knew him will miss his kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness and great sense of humor.
A memorial will be placed at the City of St. George Cremation Garden at Tonaquint Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held November 25, 2017 from 12 noon to 4:00 pm at the Social Hall located at 212 N Main Street St. George, UT.
Please join Stan's family and friends to share refreshments, hugs, and your memories of him.
