Stanley
Stanley Barritt Medlicott was a Manhattan Beach resident for 53 years and a graduate of Redondo Union High School in 1933. His wonderful life included being a paper carrier for the Daily Breeze where he won a BB gun for being a top carrier. He also worked as a bellhop at the Hermosa Beach Surf & Sand Hotel (later became the Biltmore). Stanley played water polo for UCLA, was a lifeguard for LA County, served his country in the US Naval Seabees helping to raise ships sunk at Pearl Harbor as well as active duty as a Chief Petty Officer in Okinawa. Stanley and his father owned and operated Medlicatt Plumbing in Hermosa Beach for 40 years. As a plumber he plumbed a geothermic vent to heat the outdoor showers at the Hagerty Estate in Palos Verdes. For two decades he was the supervising plumber for the old South Bay Union High School District. Stanley is survived by his wife of 65 years, Jane; his sister Mabel Randall of Palos Verdes Estates; his two daughters and son-in-law, Deborah & Rocky Wilson, Susan & Bud Palmer; six grandchildren: Bryndis, Mitchell, Kalee, Koree, McKenna and Kincaid, and of course his constant companion, his chocolate labrador retriever, ''Chip''. A small memorial service will be held Sunday, January 4, 2004 at 13th Street in Hermosa Beach on the sand. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Diabetic Youth Services, 6300 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 100, Los Angeles, CA 90048.
