It is with a heavy heart that we announce that on Thursday, June 23rd, 2022, Stan Affonso loving husband, father of two and grandfather of four, passed away exactly one month before his 84th birthday. Stan was born in Los Banos, California on July 23rd 1938 to Alfred and Angelina Affonso. In 1963, he married Caroline Louise Allan and moved to bay area, but eventually settled in Sacramento California. There, he started a very successful office coffee business, A & S Coffee Service, in 1972 and in 1998 began his own coffee roasting company, Terra Nova Roasting Co. which he ran until 2009 when he retired. He and Carol raised a daughter Nicole and a son Jon.
Stan loved to hunt ducks, fly fish, and spending time with his family and friends. He was a lifetime 49er Faithful and loved the SF Giants.
Stan was an incredibly active member of the Arden Arcade Rotary Club. There he was credited for raising thousands of dollars for Polio vaccines (as his wife is a polio survivor), as well as for the Sacramento Childrenâs Receiving Home, and W.E.A.V.E. It was this accomplishment that he was most proud.
Stan was preceded in death by his father Alfred, his mother Angelina, and his sister Donna. He is survived by his wife Carol, his two children Nicole and Jon, his brother Don, his sister Shelly, his grandchildren Phoebe, Wes, Reagan, and Simone, as well as many cousins, nephews, and nieces.
