Stanley attended school in Butte, ND through the 8th grade. He farmed with his dad. In July 1936 he enrolled with the Civilian Conservation Corps and was Honorably Discharged in March 1937. Through the years he would hop a freight train and ride to California in search of work. On one trip back to North Dakota, he saw a poster that said," Uncle Sam Wants you", that is when he decided to enlist in the United States Army. Stanley enlisted in February 1941 and was Honorably Discharged August 1945. He served in Southern France, Central Europe, Algeria-French Morocco, Tunisia, Sicily, Naples-Foggia, and Rome-Arno. While serving, he received a Distinguished Unit Badge for 1944 and 1945, a Croix De Guerre with Palm, Good Conduct Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Theater Service Medal, American Defense Service Medal, 5 Overseas Service Bars, a No Lost Time, Lapel Button and 4 Discharge Emblems. After his discharge he went back to Butte where he met Elsie J. Boyko and was married November 19, 1950. He continued to farm in the Butte area. The fall of 1958, Stanley purchased a farm one mile south of Fullerton ND where he farmed, raised his family, and called home for 55 years. Monday, November 4th, he took his last breath, exactly where he wanted to be, "At Home." Stanley farmed most of his life, and was known for wild charolais cattle. He enjoyed working with wood, and was very proud to be able to share it with family and friends. He was known as "the wild Russian" or the man with "the cowboy hat and cowboy boots". He loved to visit with everyone and was well known to have a story or two to tell. He loved his family, and he especially loved when the little great grandchildren came visit him. Stanley is survived by his wife, Elsie Krupsky, Fullerton, ND; four daughters: Deanna (Larry) Bird Colonial Beach, VA, Connie (Marvin) Teske, Monango, ND, Bonnie Hopkins, Fullerton, ND, Nancy Krupsky, Oakes, ND; 14 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren with three on the way; two great great-grandchildren and one sister: Margarette Rhodes, Shreveport, LA.
