Stanley Van den Heuvel ’40

Published in Sept. 27, 2006, issue

His classmates will attest there was no Princetonian more loyal than Stan, who died May 13, 2006, at his home in Darien, Conn.

Stan entered Princeton from Riverdale Country School. He majored in economics and graduated with honors. He was on the business board of the Tiger and a member of Tower Club. His wife of 59 years, the former Margaret Duff, started appearing on campus after he and Johnny Duff became roommates.

During World War II, Stan served as an officer in the southwest Pacific. He attended Harvard Law School and received his degree in 1947.

After practicing law for several years, he joined Hanover Bank in 1955, retiring in 1982 from Manufacturers Hanover as senior vice president and corporate secretary of the board.

Stan served as a director of LTC Trust Co., Goodwill Industries of Greater New York, the Newcomen Society of the United States, Princeton-in-Asia, and the Darien Chapter of the Red Cross; and was a member of Kiwanis, the Senior Men's Association of Darien, and the Noroton (Conn.) Presbyterian Church.

In addition to his wife, Margaret, he is survived by his son, John; two daughters, Susan Padgett and Elizabeth Ehrgood; and four grandsons. To them, his classmates wish to express their deep sympathies.
