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’.
