A recent photo of Stan

It is with sadness that we share the passing of Stan Eric Batson. To those who met him he needs no introduction. He was always friendly, charming and a little cheeky. The world has lost a Deaf leader, an advocate and a remarkable man.  Stan has been an important part of the Bluestone since he came here as a student in 1940. He made our history come alive with his evocative stories. You can read the stories of Stan’s time as a student and Stan’s memories here during the war years.

Our thoughts are with Stan’s wife and family.

Rest in peace Stan – ‘Border 8’.
