John Karlsays:

It was well over 50 years ago that we met. Similar interests in both cricket and hockey I’m sure helped us form a bond which lasted over 5 decades. I had the privilege of being his Best Man when he married Joy. He returned the favour for me some time after. We had countless trips to Coraki during our time staying with his family. What a wonderful family life he had the memories of which will stay with me forever. I could go on forever mate but it’s time to say goodbye for now. Rest in peace Cuddles till we meet again.

Vale Stan Jenkins
Far North Coast Hockey extends its sincerest condolences to the Jenkins Family at this very sad and difficult time with the loss of a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to many. FNC also grieves for our former member, friend and lifelong supporter. Hockey on the FNC has revolved around two eras: BT (before turf) and AT (after turf). Stan was part of the BT although he did visit the Turf Complex on many occasions. Especially in recent times with his grand children playing. Stan was a proud and active member of the Coraki Hockey Club and competed in the lower grades on the grass. He was a competitive but fair player and a wonderful support and part of the Coraki Hockey Club for many years. The Jenkins name is synonymous with Coraki given that Stan and his 11 brothers and sisters all played for Coraki at some stage and his mother Myrtle was their number 1 supporter. Stan was a quiet, calm and intelligent man offering good advice, and always seeing the good. Happy to point out things he considered could be improved but always in a way a gentleman would. In the years of BT, clubs would travel to the Glebe ground at Coraki (the Lang Park of FNC Hockey). Visiting Clubs would be welcomed by large numbers of enthusiastic and a very supportive Coraki Community and Stan, would be part of that crowd always. Often a positive influencer given he didn’t drink alcohol, so his recollections of moments could be counted on. Stan was there with wife Joy supporting son Craig as a Coraki junior and FNC representative player. As stated in more recent times supporting his grandchildren in AT era. FNC shares in the loss of a good and decent man whose contribution will always be remembered for all the right reasons. RIP Stan.

The Mallett family send our sincerest condolences to Joy, Craig & Sharon, grandchildren Ryan, Leah, Karli, Will, Stan’s surviving siblings their families and all that are suffering his loss. Over many years in varying ways, we knew Stan and knew him only as a good man with a great outlook on life, a man who treated all with respect. A devoted husband, father, grandfather and absolute family man. A leader in community and great example to all. Stan will be sadly missed but Judy and I are grateful our paths crossed.

Brett & Cherie Crawfordsays:

To Craig and the Jenkins family, we pass our condolences to all family members. Stan was a well respected member, umpire in the FNC cricket competitions. Stan will be missed & always remembered. RIP.

Graham Armstrongsays:

In the tapestry of life, there are certain threads that stand out boldly, weaving stories of strength, kindness, and unwavering spirit. Stan Jenkins was one such thread—a luminous presence whose impact resonates far beyond the confines of time. Today, as we bid farewell to a beloved soul, we gather not in mourning, but in celebration of a life beautifully lived.
The Armstrong family sends heartfelt condolences to the Jenkins family. Our thoughts are with Craig, Sharon, Will, Ryan, Karli and Leah during this difficult time.

Colin and Julie Earlsays:

Sending our sincere condolences to you all.
He was a top bloke and is probably already umpiring a game and giving his ‘look’ to an appeal that was never out!
He will be missed.

Graham Rosesays:

Condolences to the Jenkins family on the passing of Stan. Along with my brothers, I spent many a Saturday afternoon with Stan on the cricket fields of Lismore and surrounds. Stan was a well respected umpire and we, as players, were very fortunate to have Stan
adjudicate for us over many years. I do recall one afternoon, following tea, that Stan made a suggestion in his gentlemanly way – ” “what a great spread, the only thing missing was hot cup of tea.” As usual, he was spot on!
RIP Stan.

Craig & Sue Bellsays:

Sending our condolences to Joy and Craig and family and the Gollan families.

Pete Fordsays:

Stan’s life touched many people. A true gentleman indeed. Had the great fortune of knowing Stan on the cricket field. He was always up for a chat & a joke. He will be sadly missed, but our lives are better by knowing him. Rest in Peace Stan.

Leigh Kingmasays:

For the many years driving my children all the way out from bungawalbyn to Woodburn primary school. Then from Bungawalbyn to Evans River high school. Chatting and swapping home grown produce of eggs jams veges and having lots of laughs over jokes. You invited us to your home at Coraki to meet your wife who was also driving buses. Beautiful memories of you Stan. Hope you bump into Chris and reminence of the time he helped you change the bus tyre. Your back home now Stan. You will be surely missed. X Leigh Kingma ( McInnes)

Lesley Dunsmuirsays:

Condolences to Joy and family
Stan was an amazing caring person and always willing to help everyone May he rest in peace

Wayne Garrardsays:

My condolences to the Craig and family.
I never had the opportunity to umpire with Stan – I was still playing in the BDCA when Stan was umpiring in Lismore and Casino.
I do know he was a highly respected umpire both locally and at State representative level.
I remember him at Umpire meetings when I first joined – he made valuable contributions to these meetings, and was very supportive of new and inexperienced umpires. He did this in a calm and gentle way – a reflection of how he treated everyone around him.
He will be sadly missed by his family and friends – wishing you all strength and peace at this time.

Kim Ronansays:

Launders Familysays:

Condolences to Joy and the family.
We met Stan through our friendship with Craig and Sharon. Stan accepted us from day one/ He always had a story or a joke to tell and loved teasing you in his good natured way. One Anzac weekend we all camped in the paddock behind the house. One of the sheds was quickly converted into the games room, complete with a ping pong table and a pool table. Stan was always on hand to challenge the winner on the ping pong table. Not sure who had more fun, Stan or the kids.
May he rest in peace

Ben Ellissays:

Oh, I just found this! So sorry to hear of Stan’s passing.
He was a memorable character from my childhood in Coraki (newsagency) and also the best bus driver ever! Always so kind, generous, and happy.
Wishing Joy, Craig, Sharon, and families love and strength at this time.
