    “This world, however beautiful, was never meant to be ‘Our Home’ for all eternity.
    And though we would not choose to leave, our Almighty God knows all and loves us best.
    So at this time, He has lifted Stan to a place of peace and eternal rest.”

    To my dear friend and MSU Roomie, “Sunshine” —
    If I could dry your tears, I would…
    If I could rescue your heartbreak, I would…
    If I could put you in an aircraft and fly you through this difficult time, I would…

    But all that I can do is call on God to cover and shield you with his hand and provide you with
    inner peace and understanding that only He can bestow.

    You, Kasey, and Rob are in my loving thoughts and prayers.

    I am so grateful to have had occasions to laugh, chat, dine, and enjoy time with you and Stan.
    What a bright, caring, selfless, and brave person Stan was.

    Call me for anything at any time —

    Much Love with Deepest Sympathy,
    Margaret

    Merci cher Stan de nous avoir accueillit chez toi, de nous avoir permis de prendre les airs à bord d’un de tes nombreux avions. Merci d’avoir donné du rêve à notre fils alors âgé de 2 ans avec les « boom » de ta Jeep à Océan City. Tu nous a ouvert les portes de ta jolie maison, nous a fait un super barbecue et un tour de quad, c’était vraiment de superbes vacances à hauteur de l’homme généreux que tu étais.
    Nous ne t’oublierons jamais « tonton Yes »
    Merci pour tout ❤️ On t’aime

    I was shocked and saddened to hear about Stan’s passing. My wife and I knew Stan from our autocross days. Those days hold many fond memories for both of us. Stan was always there with a smile whenever you needed help with anything. I spent many nights on Church Road helping Stan and his dad work on his stock car between peanut butter & jelly sandwich’s. I was on his pit crew when he raced at Beltsville Speedway and was cheered on by the “First Turn Fan Club” I lost track with Stan over the years but whenever I talk to friends who remember those days, Stan’s name usually comes up. Needless to say he was loved by many and will be remembered and missed by all. Rest In Peace Stanley Rodenhauser

      Thank you, Jerry, for those kind words. I remember those Beltsville and autocross days fondly. Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. So many awesome memories, including mom’s famous pb&j sandwiches! Dad was a wonderful man, loved and missed by many. ❤️
