As a young man he was involved with the Cub Scouts of Canada where he met his future wife, also a Cub leader. He served with the Royal Canadian Air Force in Goose Bay, Labrador. Sixty years ago, together with his wife Verdun (VAILE, deceased 1978) and young son, he moved to Kitchener where he worked as superintendent of the laundry at Kitchener Waterloo Hospital. A few years later, his second son was born. During his career, he spearheaded the organization of the Ontario Association of Institutional Laundy Managers and began laundry training courses at Guelph Agriculture College. For his own enjoyment, he ran a small greenhouse, attending Kitchener Market in spring with his flower and vegetable plants. More recently, he developed a love for cooking and baking and gave away many dozens of cookies, tarts, pies and cinnamon buns. Surviving are his sons Stanford A. HIERONS and wife Elizabeth (WISMER); David J.
