PATTON, Stanley
Born January 29, 1915, St. Boniface, Manitoba, died October 20, 2006, peacefully at York Central Hospital, Richmond Hill, Ontario, in his 92nd year. Stan was married to the late Patricia Jean DUNCAN. His second marriage was to the late Wilda "Jake" DAILEY. Beloved father of Holly and her husband Allan BRIESMASTER, and of son Brooke. Cherished grandfather of Clara Mae. Loved by brother-in-law Norman DUNCAN and his wife Sheila. Also fondly remembered by stepdaughters Karen L. WYATT of Palm City, Florida and Lou Ann ELLISON of Jupiter, Florida. Stan PATTON was a consummate musician of the Dance Band Era. His instruments were tenor saxophone and clarinet. He formed his own orchestra in Vancouver in 1934, and played for years at the Hotel Vancouver, Alma Academy, and Alexander Ballroom. He was a member of the Mart Kenney Orchestra when it came east on tour. In 1941 Stan formed a popular Big Band of his own that had extended engagements at the renowned Brant Inn, Casa Loma, Banff Springs Hotel, Gatineau Country Club, and Grand Bend's Lakeview Casino. After the war, Stan organized yet another orchestra and appeared at numerous venues including the Royal York Hotel. He was also known for his arranging talents, wrote musical and comedy shows for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio, and had a marvelous musical collaboration with the late Art Hallman. After the Band era was over, Stan had a very successful career in real estate. A celebration of Stan's life is being planned for a later time. Cremation has taken place. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

Big band leader boosted spirits in tough times
By Matthew CHUNG, Staff Reporter
Stan PATTON's poor eyesight kept him home during World War 2.
So while other young Canadians were picking up their guns and fighting in Europe, Patton picked up his tenor saxophone and helped those who were here fight their worries.
They came to the dance halls -- decked out in gowns and tuxedos to dance away their fears while Stan PATTON and his Orchestra was swinging on the bandstand.
PATTON died October 20 in a Richmond Hill hospital at the age of 91. But even in his last days, he was boosting the morale of his daughter, Holly BRIESMASTER, 58, and son, Brooke PATTON, 57, with flamboyant tales of his time as a big band leader.
"Dad was definitely a star. And if you wanted to be affirmed of that, all you had to do was ask him because he would certainly tell you," his son said.
PATTON's career spanned more than three decades and saw him play from coast to coast.
A clarinet and tenor sax player, he was one of a group of Canadian big band-era musicians whose bands grew in popularity in spite of, or perhaps due to, the Depression and, later, the war.
He played Toronto's Royal York Hotel and Casa Loma, the Lakeview Casino in Grand Bend and the Brant Inn in Burlington.
PATTON also performed on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's Sweet and Low, and wrote music and comedy for other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation programs, such as Happy Gang and Newsical.
With his death, few musicians remain from that swing era.
"We're all dying," said Murray GINSBERG, 84, a retired trombonist, and former member of the Royal Canadian Army Show and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. "I knew Stan for years. He always had a good band."
PATTON was born to Irish parents in 1915 in St. Boniface, Manitoba, the youngest of nine children. He grew up in Vancouver, where he became the leader of a band in 1935.
"The nickname my dad had was 'Jazz,'" his daughter said. "His orchestra called him that. It gives you a sense of the sparkling quality about Stan PATTON."
In his unpublished memoirs, typed out in 1997, he recalls chatting on a wet morning in 1940 with his friend, Mart KENNEY, who was known as Canada's Big Band King.
PATTON wrote, "Mart, if it rains one more damn day (in Vancouver,) I'm gonna pack my sax, clarinet and tux, then I'm leaving this town forever."
KENNEY asked PATTON to join his legendary band, Mart KENNEY and his Western Gentlemen, as they relocated to Toronto. PATTON went home and said, "Mom, I'm going to Toronto with Mart KENNEY."
With KENNEY, PATTON went on a national tour. But the late nights caught up with him in the Winnipeg Arena.
"While the muted brass were playing the first chorus of 'Stardust,' I fell asleep, and when the sax section stood up to play the second chorus, (I) sat slumped down on (my) chair in dreamland," PATTON wrote.
He didn't rest long. By 1941, he had started his own orchestra in Toronto. Two years later, PATTON married Patricia Jean DUNCAN. He remarried in 1975 following Patricia's death in 1973.
When the age of the big band faded, PATTON got into real estate and made more money in his first week than he had earned in a month with the band.
"He really had a magnetic personality and he transferred his on-stage persona into being a good salesman," his son said.
But PATTON had one last summer as "Jazz" when, in 1962, he auditioned and was booked into the Imperial Room at the Royal York Hotel.
And he never really stopped putting on a show.
"Nobody was ever with my dad that they didn't laugh. Ever," Brooke said. "Sometimes you were laughing at the same band stories and jokes you had heard a hundred times."
In addition to his children, PATTON leaves a granddaughter. His family plans to mark his life on January 29, 2007, on what would have been his 92nd birthday.

Overachiever was devoted to volunteerism, family
By Amanda ROBINSON, Free Press Reporter, Sun., December 31, 2006
Ken LEMON was a London accountant with a Midas touch -- and not just at his job.
A longtime volunteer, he also put his talents to work to help many causes -- from the Young Men's Christian Association to his church and London bids to hold the Commonwealth Games.
Effortlessly, it seemed, he excelled in school, business and life.
The "ultimate professional" and father of three, he died September 25. He was 89.
"Ken could do anything he put his mind to," said his friend, Jack BIDDELL, of LEMON's ability to balance his extensive community involvement with his family life.
As a boy, LEMON's family had little money and the benefits he received from services such as the Young Men's Christian Association fueled his love of volunteerism.
He operated fundraising campaigns, chaired organizations and created foundations.
Still, he maintained a strong relationship with his family -- his late wife Honor, sons Rick and Peter LEMON and daughter Ann BRIGGS, seven grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
"He never missed anything… he would come from wherever he was to attend stuff," Peter LEMON said.
LEMON was born October 1, 1916, in Orillia.
BIDDELL said LEMON was an "overachiever" and didn't have to work hard for good grades in school. LEMON received two national scholarships, paying his tuition to attend a Canadian university.
He turned them down, accepting an apprenticeship with the Toronto accounting firm Clarkson, Gordon and Co.
"It was what he planned to do all along," said BIDDELL.
In 1948, LEMON was sent with 10 employees -- and a handful of clients -- to co-partner the company's London branch.
Keith BAUMAN/BOWMAN, a 10-year employee until 1978, believes the firm succeeded because LEMON encouraged a team atmosphere and cared about his employees.
"People had such respect for him that you wanted to do a good job and not let him down," he said.
LEMON's son said after his dad retired in 1982, he continued to do income tax returns for people without charge.
"He enjoyed doing financial activities, it was his hobby," he said. Today, "selfishness is a popular characteristic, but… he always thought of himself last."
