It is with great sadness that we report the death of …. Stanley Carris (Ret Lt ESU – Harbor Unit) who passed away on Monday, July 19, 2010, peacefully at home. He was eighty-seven years old and had retired from Harbor in 1982 after serving thirty-four years in the NYPD. During his career, Stanley had many accomplishments. Many people do not know that he was one of the original instructors of the Hostage Negotiator School at Floyd Bennett Field.  His career in ESU was his passion and it was never work for him.    Stanley served in the US Navy in WWII as an Aviation Machinist 1st class flying in B-24 bombers on submarine patrols off France and North Africa. He said that experience is why he never wanted to get in any NYPD helicopters. He leaves behind his loving wife, Dorothy, to whom he was married for sixty-five years, five children: Michael, Patricia, Paul, Monica, and Katherine, as well as thirteen grandchildren and one great grandchild.  He had a great twenty-five years of retirement, fishing and crabbing on the North Carolina Coast before returning north in 2007 due to failing health ….. He was a great conversationalist with a fabulous memory. ….Please keep Stanley and his entire family in your prayers. ….. May he enjoy his eternal rest.
