BREWER and BUCKSPORT – Stanley Milton DeBeck, 95, passed away peacefully June 3, 2006, in Bangor, after a brief illness. Stanley was born Oct. 17, 1910, in Clifton, the son of Emery Milton DeBeck and Eva Gertrude (Gasper) DeBeck. Having moved to Holden in 1920, Stanley worked as a mechanic a Bean & Conquest in Bangor from 1940-1958, at which time he and his wife, Viola (Corey) DeBeck moved to Phoenix, Ariz. where Stanley worked as a mechanic at Sands Chevrolet until 1976. Stanley was a craftsman of many talents, whether as a mechanic, a carpenter; he built several homes in the Brewer area, or an electrician. Stanley will be lovingly remembered by his family for his quick wit, his keen sense of humor, his laughter and his seemingly limitless stories of his own adventures of a life well and richly lived; memories often share by Stanley between hands of a good cribbage game. Surviving Stanley are his son, Robert M. DeBeck Sr. and his wife, Rita, of Bucksport; his grandchildren, Robert M. DeBeck Jr. and his wife, Jane, of Brewer, Pam Lord and her husband, David, of Gray, Cindy Madore of Brewer, Jim DeBeck of Bucksport, Sharon DeBeck of Hampden and Susan DeBeck of Brewer; great-grandchildren, Kristy Martin and her daughter, Elyce, of Mariaville, David Lord Jr. of Newburgh, Greg Lord of Brewer and Darren Cook of Portland. Stanley was predeceased by his parents; his brothers, Gasper M. DeBeck and Chester N. DeBeck; sister, Helen (DeBeck) Mills; his sons, Carl L. DeBeck and Emery W. DeBeck; his first wife, Viola (Corey) DeBeck, who died in December 1975 and was later married to Bertha M. Jordan, who died September 1999.
