Stanley Charles Pintarich
April 22, 1935 - April 28, 2017
Stanley Charles Pintarich, born April 22, 1935 in Portland, passed away peacefully among family members after an extended struggle with Binswanger's dementia on April 28 in Sisters.
He had just celebrated his 30th anniversary and 82nd birthday.
He was the only child of Stanley Louis and Margaret Opheim Pintarich. A lifelong Oregonian, he graduated from Lincoln High School and from Oregon State College where he received a Bachelor of Science in History. Stan spent his career with Pacific Northwest Bell (later Qwest and now Century Link), starting out as a payphone coin collector and working his way to federal procurement manager.
Stan was active and involved in his communities, including membership on the Tillamook County Planning Commission during the passing of the heralded Oregon Beach Bill. He was a member of the city council in Scappoose and was appointed to the Columbia Regional Association of Governments Council, a precursor to today's Metro Board.
Stan also served on the statewide planning Land Conservation and Development Council. After his retirement, he stayed active working with seniors in Washington County. Stan and his wife, Phyllis, were involved with various clubs including ones dedicated to vintage Volvos, Land Rovers, and Airstream travel trailers, and moved to Sisters in 2003, after having camped in Camp Sherman for several years.
Stan had a sense of humor and love of music that he gained from his father, local radio host Stan "Old Dusty" Pintarich. He loved the outdoors, and in his middle years could often be found sailing local inland waterways.
Stan is survived by his wife, Phyllis; daughters Leslie Pintarich (Denny Cusimano), Cheryl Costello (Laird Davis), and Kristin Pintarich; son Daniel (Dia) Pintarich; step-daughters Jenny (Chris) Humcke, Sarah (John) Short, and Amy Tantau Hamilton; four granddaughters and two grandsons. Remembrances may be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.
