November 23,1940- December 20, 2021 With heavy hearts, the family of Stan Godawa announced his passing at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on December 20, 2021, at the age of 81. Beloved husband and best friend of 54 years to the late Marion Godawa(September 9, 2021). Predeceased by his parents Mary and Charles Godawa. Loving father of Sheri Craggs. Cherished grandfather to Carter Craggs. Stan will be missed by his brother Joseph(Helen) Godawa, sisters Julie Krupop, Helen Baxter and nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Stan was born in Cobourg, Ontario and was delivered by a midwife in his family home. Stan, also known as “Skinny,” attended Cobourg District Collegiate Institute West, or more fondly known as “The West,” where he discovered his interest in mathematical calculations. Stan attended Queen’s University. After graduating from Queen’s University, Stan would be admitted as a member into the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario. Stan opened an accounting practice in Oshawa, Ontario and provided accounting services in Durham Region and Northumberland County. He would at times meet his clients in their homes. This was appreciated by those who could not easily leave their place of business. Stan was kind and likeable and was treated as family. Stan will be remembered for his love for golf, playing pool in both Cobourg and at Cadillac Billiards in Oshawa. He also enjoyed watching billiard tournaments in Oshawa and at the CNE. Stan enjoyed attending classic car shows and reflecting on the memories of his 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle. Stan loved his music. Every Sunday, barbecuing steaks, he enjoyed listening to his records, 8-tracks, cassette tapes or CDs. This was one of his favourite pastimes. He was known as “Stan The Music Man” where he resided at Hillsdale Estates. Listening to the recordings offered him the opportunity to relive fond memories. Stan had a beautiful smile and a sense of humour. But most of all, he had a big heart and a lot of perseverance and determination. Despite health setbacks, including a stroke, he remained in good spirits and continued to help others whenever he could. Stan wanted his family and friends to remember him by sharing a Celebration of Life, which will be held at a later date. The family would like to extend an exceptional thank you to the staff at Hillsdale Estates for their care and compassion. In memory of Stan, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
