Stan Sedran, a World War II veteran and longtime businessman who was an integral fixture in Greenville’s downtown revitalization, died Thursday, May 12. He was 101 years old. 

After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Sedran ran Sedran Furs on North Main Street in downtown for more than 60 years. 

He lived by the Golden Rule — treat others as you want to be treated — and his signature expression: “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” 

His daughter, Cindy Sedran, described her father as a man of integrity and humor. 

“He had a heart of gold,” she said. 

Sedran was born Jan. 11, 1921, in the Bronx in New York City. He was the second of two boys born to Joseph and Pauline Sedran.
