Stan Derbin Obituary, Death – With profound sadness, I convey the somber news to the Heights Nation of the loss of my dear friend, Stan Derbin. Stan’s connection to Heights was deep-rooted; he not only graduated from our institution but also returned to serve it in various capacities as a teacher, coach, and, eventually, as the assistant principal and athletic director.
Stan’s dedication to education and the Heights community was unwavering. He was a true pillar of our school, leaving an indelible mark on generations of students. In recent times, he continued to contribute by subbing and overseeing testing coordination within the district. As we remember Stan and his lifelong commitment to education, we extend our thoughts and prayers to his wife, children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews during this difficult time.
The loss of such a beloved figure leaves a void that is impossible to fill. Stosh, as many fondly called him, will be deeply missed. His memory will live on through the countless lives he touched and the positive influence he had on our school and community. We bid farewell to a cherished friend and colleague, hoping that he may rest in eternal peace. Stan’s legacy of dedication and service will forever be a source of inspiration for all who had the privilege of knowing him.
