Stanley sent this short Bio

Same heritage as Philip- both of us were the closest grandchildren to Hyman and Anne since  our mother,
Amy, shared a home with them for the first few years of our lives due to our dad serving in the Army during the 2nd world war.


Both of us continued to go there after school where Grandma would make us dinner (at 4:30PM) usually consisting of a swimming pool size bowl of chicken noodle soup with matzo balls, !/2 a roast hen and roast potatoes, all cooked wonderfully in schmaltz. She would sit 6 inches away from us imploring us to "essen, essen"!   And you wonder why both Philip and I had heart attacks later in life!!!  :)


1955 Stans Barmitzvah


At 17 I went to Australia, and married my first wife Vicki. 
We had a daughter Jacqueline. I retained custody of Jackie and after marrying my current wife, Jani, all 3 of us immigrated
 to Israel at the tail end of the Yom Kippur war and took up
residence on kibbutz Mishmar Haemek 


Lt Morrison







Drafted into the army in 1978 I was initially in a self propelled
artillery unit and later to Shabak with the rank of Lieutenant.
As "export manager" for the Kibbutz industry travelled extensively
throughout the world for several years. We now live in Vancouver, Canada.

Jani was personally converted to Judaism by the chief rabbi
of Israel at the time, Rabbi Shlomo Goren, and has maintained
a strong Jewish identity ever since.  Her Hebrew name is
Esther bat Avraham. Mine is Yeshea ben Mordechai (feel free to call me Jesus)!
Jani and I share 3 children - Cigalle, Allon and Gali.  Since Jani has been the only mother Jackie knows we do not differentiate now and therefore we share all 4.


Micheal, Gali, Jani and Stan

Jackie is married to Pat Visentin and they have 3 daughters, Sabine (7), Maxine, (5) and Nina (3 months). They live in Montreal.  (Incidentally, Jackie served in the IDF before coming to Canada and was in the military police).

Pat and Jackie with Maxine, Sabine and Nina

Cigalle is married to Craig Ettinger and they have 1 son, David (3). They live nearby in Richmond, B.C.
Gali is married to Micheal Meehan (the spelling of Micheal is how they write it - he's Irish -what do they know??!! :)  ) They live in Glastonbury, England.
Allon is engaged to Christie Mitchinson. Nuptials are scheduled for next May, 2010. They live in Vancouver.


Stan, Jani, Cigalle, Craig, Allon, Christie and David

Jani is the BC Provincial Office administrator for a multi-office engineering company.
I am a web site developer and teach Okinawan karate and Krav Maga as a hobby.

I think that should cover things for the time being.  If you need any more information please let me know.  Philip never ceases to amaze me with his memory of all our extended family.  I don't know how he manages to keep track of everything.


Kol ha Kavod to both of you.
