Stanley Felix Wozniak, 84, Pulaski, passed away peacefully Wednesday morning, January 6, 2021, at Country Villa in Pulaski. The oldest of three sons, he was born May 25, 1936, in Goodman to the late Stanley Sr. and Anna (Slowik) Wozniak. The family made their home in Goodman. Prior to entering the U.S. Navy in 1955, Stan was able to take in the MLB All Star Game at Milwaukee County Stadium. He served his country for two years and then attended UW Stevens Point, where he met his wife, Mary Retzner. On February 11, 1961, Stan and Mary were married and then settled in Pulaski. He taught mathematics at Pulaski High School and coached JV Football. His students would refer to him as “Uncle Stan.”
In 1966, Stan started a career with Wisconsin Public Service Nuclear Fuel Division. For the next 39 years he managed the plants in Kewaunee and Hudson. He rose to the level of Vice President of his division and his employment offered him the opportunity to travel to plants in France and Russia.
In 2005, Stan was inducted into the Green Bay Officiating Hall of Fame. He earned this honor for refereeing both high school basketball and football games for decades. Stan also umpired and coached youth baseball.
Stan was known for his dry sense of humor. He enjoyed spending his retirement years at his property in Gillett. Stan kept his mind sharp with crossword and Sudoku puzzles. In his younger years, he had been active in the Pulaski Lions Club.
In addition to his wife, Mary, survivors include two children, Will (Tracy) Wozniak, Milwaukee and Ann (Joe) Kaminski, Sturgeon Bay. Stan is also survived by two grandchildren, Katie Kaminski and Andy, and one great-grandson, Miles.
