In Memorium - Stan Nettis July 3, 2023

August 12, 2023 8:51 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Museum Member Stan Nettis passed away on Monday July 3, 2023.

Stan was a long time Member of the Fox River Trolley Museum as a motorman, conductor, and a big help on the track crew.  From 1992 to 1999, Stan was a Board Member and held the office of Treasurer until 1999.  Stan was also a big help in the Museum Store.   Declining health meant that Stan had to give up being on train crew, but he was always a part of the Museum until the day he passed away.

I first met Stan in 1982 as a fellow member of the Central Electric Railfans Association and fondly remember riding with him in October 1983 on the farewell trip of the old South Shore Cars.

Stan, you are very much in our hearts and memories.   You will be very much missed.

It was Stan's wish that his ashes be scattered at the Museum.  Stan's daughter, Robyn Nettis, will bring his remains home to the Museum on Sunday, August 13, 2023 with a special charter at 10:00 AM to lay Stan to rest.

In remembrance of Stan, Robyn has asked that donations be made in his name to the Fox River Trolley Museum.

Ed Konecki, President
