Stanley Dzierwa

Stanley J. Dzierwa, age 60, lost his battle with Glioblastoma, a horrible and unpredictable disease, on October 19, 2018. He was peacefully in his home, surrounded by family. Stan fought like hell and gave it everything he had every second of every day. Through every chemo session, infusion, and trial drug he never once complained and never gave up. Stan was an incredible person, whether it be in regards to his business or with his family and friends or on a bicycle; he was always all-in and thoroughly determined to be the best that he could. Anyone who knew him knows that he was the one of the most caring, thoughtful, intelligent, and loving people to ever grace this earth. He cared more about the happiness of others then his own personal happiness. Stan leaves behind his wife Karen of over 37 years; his two wonderful children, Eric and Jenna (Jerod Gardner); sisters, Catherine (Joe) Camilleri, Suzanne (Barry) Springsteen and Shirley Camilleri (Paul Baker); his business partner and best friend, Bob Dunford; and his best furry friend, Shelby. Stan also leaves many sister-in-laws, brother-in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, co-workers and dear friends. A memorial gathering will be held on Sunday, November 4, 2018, 1-7pm at Springfield Oaks County Park in the Activities Center, 12451 Andersonville Road, Davisburg. There will be a prayer and memory sharing at 4pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Stan’s name to Shalom Lutheran Church in Pinckney. The amount of love and support from family, friends, and colleagues has been absolutely incredible. Let’s also not forget that this is still not the end of this journey. Let the love and positivity that lived inside Stan, live inside and influence you every day in your life.

Truly a profound blessing as both a friend and brother in faith which he lived out unceasingly in actions, not just in words. All who were blessed by his presence in our lives will continue on noticeably diminished. Indeed, the world and each day will be less bright. God's speed to Stan and God's loving presence with Karen, Eric, and Jenna.

Oh how my heart hurts for my favorite family. I love you all so much and just can't believe I am even writing this. I will forever in my heart cherish my times spent around your kitchen table, while Shelby waited at the door for her Beloved. I love you all so much, and Staniel you will be deeply missed. Love Kathryn Dzierwa

While I am deeply, genuinely & truly sorry for Karen, Eric and Jenna's loss, And I mean that with every ounce of fiber within my being, I am going to choose to hold my chin up high and carry all the amazing memories that have been forever imprinted on my heart by a man that I have always looked up to, respected, sought advice from, trusted & loved as my dad #2 and I WILL continue to look up to for as long as I live. I will share all the things that YOU taught me, with others and I will honor YOU by doing my absolute best to always see the good in everyone and to live my life by the example you lived yours. Stan, I will miss your physical presence on this earth for now but I promise to always love and check in on Karen and Eric and Jenna from time to time and be there for them if they ever need anything (I know you would do that for me) and I will always bring up your funny stories when it feels right to do, and I promise to live out all the things I have learned from you; as you will continue to make a difference in the lives of so many others; even in your physical absence because that is a small example of just how strongly you have impacted my life and so may others and it will be demonstrated in the lives of everyone who was blessed enough to be a part of your life. Thank you SO much for being an amazing best friend to my dad and I could go on an, really, I could, but I’m pretty certain you would gently remind me that I need to make sure I allow space for others to leave a message too :) Fly high and soar like an eagle to an all around World Class man that I loved as my Dad#2! With lots of love and everlasting memories that I will surely treasure forever, thank you so much for being YOU!

My deepest sympathy to Karen, Eric, and Jenna. I will truly miss Stan. Although the time I spent with him was short, I always considered him a good friend. I will deeply miss him.

~Gary Orey    

To all those who knew Stan, and especially family, I give my condolences in this tough time. I knew Stan since 2005 when we were introduced through work. He always carried a smile and brought a smile to me. We worked on many things together. For any questions I had, for any help I needed, Stan was the man. I will miss him very much.

Stan, as I am reading these beautiful memories, I remember just how blessed I am to have had you in my life. Like Bobbie Jo said, you were truly like a second father to me as well. Thank u for the countless memories and wonderful conversations we shared. I will never forget the time when I came into the Belleville plant the winter of 2016. I will never forget how you came into Dad's office and specifically came in to say ,"Hi!" I will never forget your smile,and you gave me a hug and said," Its so great to see you!" You always made me feel like I was your family because that's what we are. You, Karen, Jenna and Eric will forever be our family. I will never forget you said to me that day. You were so excited about the business and you said," The Lord just opened all the doors and it it so amazing how He worked everything out for us to be able to purchase this facility." You told me that you, my dad ,Karen and my mom all joined hands and prayed over the building and basically dedicated SMW to the Lord, because you knew that God had big plans to use SMW for the Lords work. To provide jobs for families. You and my Dad share the same vision and purpose for what God had planned for SMW. You truly have a heart of gold Stan. I know that your Journey is just beginning and I cannot wait to see you soon in Heaven where we will all be together again. Thank u for all of your jokes and amazing sense of humor. I will cherish them forever. Love you like a second dad too.
