Stanley Oatman Jr.

Stanley Frederick Oatman

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of the Stanley Oatman Jr. of Otterville, Ontario at VON Sakura House, Woodstock on Saturday January 29, 2022 at age 47 years old.

Beloved husband of Julie for 21 years and happily together for 26 years. Cherished son of Stanley Oatman Sr. and Vivian Oatman.  Sadly missed by his four children Allysha (Mitchell), Wesley, Jamie, and Billie (Christian).  Proud Grandfather of Milo.  Stan was predeceased by his eldest child Jessica.  He will be missed by many in laws, Uncles, Aunts, cousins and friends.

Stanley enjoyed riding on his motorcycle, and woodworking. An old hobby of Stanley's was jamming on his acoustic guitar. Stan enjoyed hunting a variety of animals including deer, turkey, and duck. In his downtime he enjoyed playing Lord of the Rings on the computer. In the summer you'd find Stanley and his family camping at Port Burwell. Everything Stan did was for his family, never focused on himself.

A Celebration of Life will be held early Summer of 2022. Donations in Stanley’s memory to VON Sakura House, Woodstock are appreciated and can be made directly or (by cheque) through Wareing Cremation Services, 225 Norwich Ave., Woodstock, Ontario N4S 3V8 (519-290-5575).

Stanley and my oldest son Shawn hung out for awhile when they were younger in Brownsville, I always found Stanley to be a polite, friendly and a nice boy. May he rest in peace.
