R. Stanley Ferguson passed away peacefully on August, 15, 2022, in Goshen, NY after a short illness. He was 94 years old, born September 8, 1927 to Russell S. and Frances Slaughter Ferguson in Warwick, NY.

He was a member of the Town Planning Board, Warwick Reformed Church, The Queens Village Glee Club, The Classic Choral Society and sang for many private events.

Remembering your Dad helping the Fletcher family settle into the farm on Iron Mountain Road and all his efforts with the fruit farm and orchards; very good memories when neighbors reached out to each other.
