Stan Glyzinski, age 89 of Hammond died unexpectedly Friday afternoon, June 15 2012 at his home. Stan was born on May 7, 1923 in Fountain City, Wisconsin; the son of Sylvester and Elizabeth (Pruka) Glyzinski. He attended the grade country school near Disco, Wisconsin. As a young man, he enlisted in the armed forces where he proudly served in the United States Army during World War II. On July 24, 1948, he was united in marriage to Alice Mae Drogseth at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Black River Falls. This union would be further blessed with five children. Stan was an over the road truck driver. He worked several years for various trucking firms but most recently for Noel Transfer out of St. Paul.  Stan was a proud member of the Immaculate Conception Knights of Columbus where he was a charter member serving over fifty years of dedicated service. Furthermore, he was a proud veteran and a member Hammond American Legion Post.  Stan served as sexton of the Immaculate Conception/St. Mary’s Catholic Parish Cemetery. He had great respect for this holy ground and could be seen many summer days riding the John Deere or weed whipping to keep it looking like a park. His admiration for his fellow comrades was also seen as he promoted all veterans to proudly display markers showing their service to our country. Some other interests he had included his vegetable garden and traveling to Alaska or Washington State to visit Rodney.

He will be fondly remembered by his wife and best friend of nearly 65 years Alice; children Rodney (Corine), Sue (Bob) Trudell, Becky (Ron Hanson) Demulling, Tony (Connie Frazier) Glyzinski, Kim (Chuck) Kitchner, nine grandchildren, four step grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, six step great grandchildren; sisters Mary Ann Thompson of Washington, Betty Johnson of Oregon, and Dorothy (Donald) Severson of Wisconsin..
