Stanley Brzuzy

Stanley Brzuzy, 74, of Bunner Ridge Community, soared into the arms of his Savior on Saturday (April 26, 2014) at 12:10 a.m. with his loves of his life by his side.

Stanley was a man of truth and love. He was a dedicated husband, father, Pappy and friend. He cherished the Catholic religion, attending St. Peters Catholic Church as a child and currently attending Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

His first job was at the age of 12 was a caddy at the Fairmont Field Club. Growing up on Country Club Road, his mom made him ride his bike or walk to work.  This job fueled his passion for the game, and then you could always find him on a golf course. Especially the 19th hole, as it never rained there.

Stan retired from Lucent Technologies/AT&T after 34 years of service. He served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Berlin, Germany. He loved to travel throughout Europe during his deployment.

He was born in Monongah on Sept. 17, 1939, a son of the late Wladyslaw and Stephania (Zuzak) Brzuzy, both of whom immigrated through Ellis Island, N.Y.

Stan is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 48 years, Sue (Strawderman) Brzuzy; his two daughters, Kristie Solheim and her husband Brent of Fairmont, and Karla Brzuzy also of Fairmont.

Pappy cherished following his grandkids. He rarely missed one of their sporting events until cancer stole his energy. His very special grandchildren are Jordane Brzuzy-Hill, Jasmin Johnson, Devon Johnson, Myles Johnson, Zoe Leonard, Jaida Johnson, Daxx Leonard, Roman Solheim and Braelyn Brzuzy-Sowell.

Also surviving are two brothers, John Brzuzy and Karen Rankin of Richmond, Va., and Indiana, and Stephen Brzuzy of Grassy Run; a sister-in-law, Lucille Brzuzy of Fairmont; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Stanley was preceded in death by his sisters, Freda Rogers, Edith Bland and Laura Yereb; his brothers, Chester Brzuzy, Walter Brzuzy and Edwin Brzuzy; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Eva Brzuzy, Robert Rogers, Ruth Ann Brzuzy, Ralph Yereb and Cecelia Brzuzy.

Stanley’s family would like to thank Dr. John Azar and Traci Tannehill and their entire staff. They treated him as a family member. His family is grateful also to the nursing staff on 3B at Fairmont General Hospital. They would also like to thank the one-on-one providers who sat with him, Carolyn, Molly, Lisa and Rachel.

Family and friends may call at the Carpenter & Ford Funeral Home, 209 Merchant St., Fairmont, on Monday from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. A Vigil Service will be held at the funeral home on Monday at 8 p.m. by Father Walter M. Jagela and Sister Stella Cronauer. Visitation will continue on Tuesday at the funeral home from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Tuesday at 1 p.m. with Rev.
