Although I didn't directly participate too much to Manet activities these last years, I am deeply saddened by this news.

Alvaro/manet community:

Very sad news, Stan was a great cochair in previous times we served together and he always gave it to you straight.

I’ll be raising a glass to him.

We worked together on several (mostly internal) projects related to manet, including rfc7137.  He was always easy to get along with, but also didn’t mince words when expressing his opinion.  Always a pleasure to work with!
