Created January 5, 2018
During the morning hours of January 5th, a beloved friend and family member died while surfing with his good friend off Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, CA. Stan Searfus, only 56, leaves behind his beautiful family to include wife Jan and children Hank, Oskar, Clark, Berkeley, and young twins Jake and Josh; all of whom he loved dearly.

Stan lived with his family in Coronado, CA where he was a devoted and active member of the commmunity where he was a Lifeguard, Coronado High School and Middle School Surf Coach and founder of Blue Wave Coronado Surf Camp. He was passionate about the youth in his community and would lend a hand to anyone who needed. His selflessness and joy for life was absolutely tangible by anyone who was in his presence. After meeting him just once, he would call you his friend.

Stan's passing is obviously overwhelming for the family he leaves behind and his wife Jan will be supporting their 6 children in his absense. Please consider giving to support a family who has supported us these many years. All funds go directly to his wife and children. 

We love you and will never forget you, dear friend. Our community will miss you more than words could say.
