Stan Edwards

Stan was an employee of Chugach Management Services, Inc. and he worked as the Assistant Chief of Fire Prevention for the Kwajalein Fire Department. Prior to coming to Kwajalein, he retired from the fire department in Boise, Idaho following 27 years of service there. He also honorably served our country for a combined 25 years in the US Navy, US Army and Air National Guard.


Stan had been a resident of Kwajalein from August 2010 to November 2015. Stan was involved in many things on Kwajalein and loved supporting the US military and our veterans. This was evident by his volunteerism with American Legion Post 44 where he held the position of 1st Vice Commander, and he was one of the original members of the Kingfisher Project, and he remained an active team member of the Kwajalein MIA Project when the project was expanded. He was devoted to helping find and account for missing-in-action servicemen from WWII in the Kwajalein lagoon.


Stan passed away in June 2017 in New Jersey, following a long battle with cancer. His wife Paulette has been made an honorary member of the team. He will be sincerely missed by his teammates on the Kwajalein MIA Project.
