Stanley Hale

Stanley Victor Hale, 85, of Hudson, WI, passed away at his home on May 7, 2016, after a short battle with cancer.

Stanley, the son of Sidney and Ada (Hayward) Hale, was born on November 8, 1930, in Walthamstow, London, England. Like many children during WW2, Stanley was evacuated to the countryside to escape the Blitz of London. Part of his time as an evacuee was spent on a farm, which sparked a lifelong love of animals and rural places. After graduating from the Sir George Monoux School, Stanley served in the Royal Air Force. Following his service in the RAF, he lived and worked in Panama, New Zealand, Japan, and the United States. In 1957 Stanley joined 3M, where he travelled the world as a marketing manager. He met his wife, Mary Goens, at 3M, and they married in St. Paul, MN, on June 23, 1967.

Stanley is survived by his wife, Mary; son, John (Dr. Jodi Elliott) Hale; daughter, Ann M. Hale; and children in spirit, Tom and Shelly Koithan.

Per Stanley’s wishes, no services are being held.

“If I should die, think only this of me;

That there’s some corner of a foreign field

That is for ever England.”
