Rochester Hills, MI

"Stanley Edward Towianski, 89, of Rochester Hills, MI passed away on February 26, 2024. He was born in Detroit on October 25, 1934, the son of Jerry and Helen (Munia) Towianski. After serving with the U.S. Army in Germany, he followed his father into the tool and die trade and enjoyed a long career with Chrysler Automotive, retiring in 1992. He then attended Macomb Community College and Oakland University, earning degrees in social work and counseling before moving to Ordway, Colorado. He was active in Alcoholics Anonymous and did extensive volunteer work in substance abuse counseling throughout the decades that followed. He moved back to Michigan in 2020, to be close to the family he cherished. Stan loved socializing with friends, small-town auctions, family events, hunting and fishing, and helping those in need. He kept his pocket stocked with dollar coins for the children in his life. He was a devoted fan of Frank Sinatra, Donald Trump, and Red Lobster’s Endless Shrimp. Above all else, however, Grandpa Stan will be remembered for presiding over huge platters of snow crab as he treated dozens of family members to noisy private-room meals at the Chinese buffet— followed by huge bags of Circus Peanuts and chocolates. Left to cherish his memory are his sister Patricia Towianski, his children Stan (Jenn) Towianski, Michael MacDonald, Jerry Towianski, and Tammy Towianski; 18 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren. Preceding him in death are his parents; siblings Julian, Sophie and Wanda; and his longtime girlfriend, Ruth Ramer. Honoring his wishes, there are no services planned at this time; burial and a family celebration of his life will be held this spring."
