On August 24, 1963, he was united in marriage to Judith Jane Price in Kearney. They moved to Sargent in 1964 where Stan was a music educator. In 1966 they moved to Neligh where Stan taught high school music. While living in Neligh, their two daughters, Trisha and Tracy, were born. In 1970, they relocated to McCook where Stan taught instrumental music in the McCook Public High School. In 1973, under his direction, the MHS band represented the state of Nebraska in the presidential inauguration parade in Washington DC. In 1976, Stan took the band to the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona.
