Dr. Stanley Post passed away peacefully at home on June 1 at the age of 92.
First and foremost, Stan was a doctor, Gladys’ “tall, handsome prince in a white coat.”
He was a women’s health advocate and an accomplished OB-GYN surgeon, delivering more than 6,000 babies in his career.
Stan was a lifelong learner, keeping up with advances in medicine and sharing his knowledge with colleagues. He was a legend in the medico-legal world, defending doctors against undeserved lawsuits.
Stan loved being a doctor. He was altruistic, tireless, and giving, without concern for monetary reward. His patients adored him and so did their husbands, a confluence of both men and women appreciating his bedside manner and his skills.
Stan served his country during World War II, enlisting in the U.S. Army Air Corps at age 17 and serving for 3½ years.
Stanley is survived by his wife of 62 years, Gladys, who adored and admired him. His whole family appreciated his sharp wit and sense of humor, and his love for them.
Stanley’s children (Dr. Anthony Post, Dr. Marjorie Greenfield, and Victoria and Jack Risko) and his grandchildren (Dan Post, Katie Hansan Post, John and Jenny Risko, and Jordan Risko) loved, admired, and respected him. They, and his cherished dog Bella, will all miss him.
No visitation is planned.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Crossroads Hospice or a charity of your choice.
