Gregory E. Stanbro Jr. ’50

Published in Apr. 4, 2001, issue

Greg, who came to Princeton from Oklahoma, died of cancer Sept. 11, 2000.

At Princeton, Greg was a member of Colonial Club. Though majoring in biology, he went on to graduate school at the U. of Oklahoma and received a degree in geology/geophysics. His graduate studies there were interrupted by a three-year stint in the Navy, where he served for two years in the Pacific and a year in the Atlantic on the aircraft carrier USS Valley Forge. He left active duty as a lieutenant, junior grade.

His chosen career in geology took him initially to California with Standard Oil, and for our 25th reunion he gave his address as Chevron Oil in Gabon, Africa. His interests ranged from golf and skiing to coin collecting, photography, and history.

Greg married Diane Mellish in 1980 in NYC. At the time of his death, he had retired and lived in Denver, where he was a member of the Denver Country Club and St. John's Episcopal Church.

The class extends its condolences to Diane, two sisters, six stepchildren, and five step-grandchildren.
