I met GUY STANLEY in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1962. He and I were training as pilots. We were both in our late teens. His hobby was magic - a very skilled magician. My hobby was photography. The sands of time separated us during our military days. Now I'd like to find him and reconnect. Does anyone in this group know of a very good magician named Guy Stanley? He would be 70ish today if he is still alive. Guy turned me on to magic at that time and it subsequently became my second hobby. Now, I live in the area where he lived when he joined the Airforce - Vancouver, British Columbia. And I am club photographer at The Vancouver Magic Circle (IBM Ring 92). I full expected to find Guy when I moved here from Eastern Canada. I ask every senior magician that I meet, but nobody remembers GUY STANLEY. Do you?

I've searched the Web and archives of all the old magic magazines. I found a M-U-M reference to a new member joining a magic club in Ohio in 1978. His name was Guy Stanley and my Guy would have been about 32 years old at that time. It could have been him. Guy loved magic so much, I can't see him giving it up. He could be an IBM member? So, I continue to search. Please help me reconnect with my old friend, or at least let me know what happened to him? Warm Regards, John

I'm a happy man. Some people of action helped me find my long lost friend Guy Stanley.

Nicole at Canada's Magic saw my post here, emailed me and asked me to send her my contact information which she sent to Phil at Perfect Magic in Montreal so that he could forward it Guy Stanley, one of his regular customers. Guy called me within hours and we spoke for several hours catching up on 53 years of separated time.

I was right. Guy still loves magic as a hobby and has a treasury of books on great historical champions of magic. Thanks Nicole for taking action. Thanks Phil for closing the loop. And thanks to Magic Café's Steve Brooks for making connections among us magicians possible!
