WITWICKI, Stanley Walter. Jan. 11, 1933 – Dec. 8, 2013. Born in Dauphin, MB, Stan joined the RCN in April 1951, subsequently serving on the aircraft carrier H.M.C.S. Magnificent. In 1956, he moved to BC. Stan belonged to the RCL Br. 88, Canadian Naval Air Group, Golden Ears Flying Club, and POCO Minor Hockey Association.
