Stan Shambaugh, 56, died Sept. 27, 2021, in Banning. Stan was born to Bruce and Linda Shambaugh on Oct. 15, 1964, in Evansville, Ind.
Stan was a husband, step-father, papaw, son, brother, uncle and friend. Stan lived life to the fullest. He lived on his terms, with an open heart, and was never afraid to share his opinion.
Stan had a zeal for life that guided him on adventures around the globe and brought lifelong friendships from many of the places he called home; California, Colorado and Mexico to name a few.
His sense for adventure and love for his country made it imperative that he serve his nation. Stan was a proud member of the U.S. Army and when his tour of duty was complete he continued to protect the community by serving in the private security industry. His decision to protect was a blessing in disguise because this is where he met his wife of eight years, Gloria.
Stan, Gloria and many of their friends would often call Disneyland their home away from home and one could always count on listening to some Jimmy Buffett on the drive to Disneyland.
Stan is survived by his father, Bruce Shambaugh, brother, David Shambaugh and his loving wife, Gloria Shambaugh.
A celebration of his life will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 26, at 11 a.m. at Emmerson Bartlett Memorial Chapel, 35208 Yucaipa Blvd., Yucaipa, with burial to follow with full Military Honors at Riverside National Cemetery at 1:30 p.m.
