It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Stanley Rozmus on Saturday, April 17, 2021. He was a light in this world and now we need to continue to shine his light by carrying it within.
Stanley (Stush) was born on April 25, 1924, son of the late Matthew and Frances Bonk Rozmus. On October 21, 1950, he married (the late) Marcella Pokrzywa. Stanley was a U.S. Army decorated war veteran, serving in WWII and the Philippines. He was honorably discharged and awarded the purple heart.
Stanley retired from Climax Molybdenum after 42 years where he worked as an electrician. He enjoyed long Sunday drives “to look at the scenery” (much to the dismay of his daughters), he loved to polka dancing, gardening and tending his property (where cutting the grass became a science), he enjoyed attending family gatherings, tinkering in the garage, and nurturing birds and rabbits.
He instilled in his daughters a firm work ethic, a love for the ocean, and music.
Stanley is survived by two daughters, Cheryl (Jim) Parko, and Carol (Dale) Porchiran, grandchildren, Jamie (Shane) Maga, Marcy (Derek) Miller, and Christopher (Beth) Porchiran, great-grandchildren, Logan, Parker, Reese, and Conner, sister Helen (Cherok) and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents and wife, he is preceded in death by sisters, Pauline Wysocki, Mary Czarnecki, Louise Yakima, Julia Sray, and Josephine Piernak, brothers, Frank, John, Mike, and Joe.
