Stan Inkpen

May 31, 1925 to October 30, 2016


Stan Inkpen passed away peacefully on October 30, 2016, surrounded by his adoring family. He died as he had lived, with grace, dignity and a loving heart. He leaves behind his life long love Corinne; his three children, Susan (Colin) Simms, Steve (Kathy), and Janine; his nine grandchildren, Stephanie, Daniel, Jesse, Andrew, Lane, Hayley, Chelsea, Brittany, and Alannah; and his three great-grandchildren, Benjamin, Bailey, and Anna; as well as his brother, David of Halifax.

Stan moved to Newfoundland from Nova Scotia in 1951 to open an office for H.R. Doane where he spent his career. He loved his work as a chartered accountant as well as his professional associations with the Waterford Hospital Board, the Kiwanis Club, Board of Trade, and Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants. However, what he truly loved about his work was the life long friendships that he made and enjoyed until the end.

An avid reader of the daily newspaper, dad was an authority on politics, current events and the comic strip. He cherished his time spent with family at the country place on Nine Island Pond. Dad remained interested in sports, card games, family gatherings and had a genuine love for life until the end.
An exceptionally kind and selfless man who took an interest in others, he always looked on the positive side of life. We are all incredibly thankful we had him in our lives for 91 years, and we will forever have him in our hearts

Janine and family,

I am sorry to learn of the passing of your father. I was in St. John’s last week and went to Nine Island Pond with my mother. When we were standing on the wharf, I could see “the Inkpens’ place” and asked if she knew if it was still in your family. So, I was taken aback when I checked “The Telegram” online today and saw the obituary for your dad.

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you but I well remember the wonderful family relationship you shared with your parents and siblings.

Take care.

I remember well our parents friendship. My sincere sympathy to you Susan and the Inkpen family.

To my dear friend Susan and the whole Inkpen Family,
Prayers and thoughts are with all of you.
Stan was a kind, sweet and wonderful man.
Thinking of you with love,
