In Memoriam: Volunteer Advocate Stanley Fox
OOIE is sorry to announce the passing of long-time volunteer advocate Stanley Fox, 86, on August 21, 2012. Stanley was the Advocate at Maple Glen in Fair Lawn, Bergen County. He attended all of the regional quarterly meetings and was very outgoing and outspoken. Stanley often said he felt lucky to be healthy enough to give back to other seniors who were not so fortunate. Our deepest condolences to Stanley’s friends and family. He will be sorely missed.
