It is with heavy hearts that we let our friends and guests know about the passing of my oldest brother Jim. Many of our longtime guests may remember Jimmy being at the resort from 70's all the way to the early 2000's. He was an avid fisherman and was a longtime muskie hunter. Jim's fingerprints are all over Stanley's, as many of the cabins here were designed and built with Jim's handiwork. Always the out going guide, Jim was one of those guys that you heard coming before you saw him. Our entire family has been taken back by Jim leaving us at only the age of 50, but we are comforted by the outpouring of friends and family wishing us the best, and praying that Jim has finally found peace from difficult times he faced in the past years. There are no funeral arragements at the current time, but a memorial service is going to planed in the future to celebrate Jim's life and great contributions that he made. ......I can just imagine Jim and Jesus out fishing right now, and Jim yelling from the back of the boat.."set the hook!!! set the hook!!"....
