Stanley Noorlander was born the third son of John Henry Noorlander and Vibka (Minnie) Vander Woude Noorlander April 9, 1930. He grew up in the Ogden/Huntsville area of Northern Utah. He was born just 8 months before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. At a very young age he saw America unite in great patriotic unity and win World War II. He began working before he finished high school at the Holsum Bakery in Ogden Utah. He rode his bicycle 16 miles from Huntsville to the Ogden bakery each day. He was raised LDS and one of his proudest moments was when as a young man he met the Prophet David O McKay. He married at 17 and had a daughter Joy Christensen Anderson.

From 1951 to 1953 he sacrificed 2 years of his life and served his country in the Korean Conflict. He served in the town of Pusan, South Korea in the US Army as a cook and messenger to the front lines. After his service in Korea he returned to Utah and met the love of his life, Lilly Mae Stocks Noorlander on a blind date. They dated for one week and eloped to Elko Nevada. The stayed married for more than 62 years before she passed away at 82 years of age. Their marriage was one of devotion and compassion without contention. Stanley baptized Lilly into the LDS church shortly after they moved to Moab.

They bought a small dairy farm in Liberty Utah and worked it for two years. They did not make enough money even though both worked other jobs. In 1957 they found great opportunity in Moab during the Uranium Boom. Stanley worked at Atlas Minerals in the Uranium Mill for 13 years. He quit his job at Atlas and was hired at Texas Gulf Sulphur (Potash). He worked there until he retired at 55. He loved to work and to be productive with his time. He was always physically active and wanted to accomplish something substantial each day.

Stanley was a humble and generous man all his life. He was strong and healthy until about a month before his death. He died Sunday February 21, 2016 of complications from a heart attack. He touched and molded many lives with his compassionate Christ-Like example of Love for others. He was fair in his dealings to a fault.

He joined the Sagebrush Rebellion and fought the BLM with his wife Lilly Noorlander. He believed in the 10th Amendment that the federal government possesses only those powers delegated to in by the United States Constitution. All remaining powers are reserved for the states or the people. They both believed in people who have little status in society and that government should be accountable to the people not the other way around.

Stanley and Lilly had four sons, Stanley, Leslie, Mike (Victoria S. White Eagle) Noorlander, David (Rebecca Jugarap Cutanda ) Noorlander. He had Three sisters; Bonnie Noorlander, Jean Clark, and Carol Smith; four brothers Donald Noorlander, Richard (Ivy) Noorlander, Johnny Noorlander, and Blaine ( Marsha) Noorlander. He was an excellent father and husband. He has numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren all of whom he loved very much! He will be missed greatly by those who knew him. There is a spot reserved for him in the mansions of Heaven. We Love you and miss you dad!

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
