Stan and Jan moved to the Branson, Missouri area where they lived until moving

Mayo Clinic for forty years, retiring in 1994. Stanley was a member of Faith
United Methodist Church in Eyota and had been a longtime member of the Elks

kept all those around him smiling. He will be greatly missed. He is survived by his

(Gary) Johnson of St. Paul, Trina Urban of Stewartville and Jay (Dawn) Mahon of

at Cottagewood for the excellent care they provided Stanley, and to the Mayo

celebration of Stan’s life will be held when it is safe. Burial will take place at
Grandview Memorial Gardens in Rochester. Memorials are preferred to the
