Our Own Stan “The Man”

He and his wife also have a son Stan Jr. Stan Sr. was born on April 1, 1935 to Stanley E. and Mary Helen in St. Louis, Missouri. Stan Sr. was also a founding partner of Bazan Painting Company with Walter Bazan Sr., his brother.
Stan “the Man” Bazan Sr. was a proud co-founder with Walter Sr. of Bazan Painting in August of 1977. They worked hard to create a company that they could stand behind. Stan left the business and was an apprentice instructor for the education of future painters. He passed on to Walter Bazan, Jr., current President of Bazan Painting, a vast knowledge of painting when they worked in the field, Stan as the foremen and Walter Jr. as the young student painter.
Teaching others was the true life calling for Stan, along with making everyone around him laugh and smile. He was known for his sense of humor and used it to help educate many of the young apprentices he worked with and instructed. His friends and family would say that he was a generous, caring, giving, and genuinely a fun loving happy person.
He gave back to his community through his involvement in clubs and charity work. He participated in clubs or work such as St. Louis Club, Mid States, Blockers in the Villages, Painters Union-St. Louis District Council 2, Local 115, Knights of Columbus, Meals on Wheels, and Book-Journey Inward Journal.
Thanks to his hard work and contribution to Bazan Painting Company and other organizations, he has touched the lives of many. The people at Bazan Painting, former painter apprentices, work colleagues and friends could not be more thankful for having Stan “the Man” in their lives.
