Stanislaw ‚Stanley’ Dyszynski, beloved husband of Czeslawa ‚Cesia’ Dyszynski for almost 60 years; devoted father of Kris, Barbara and Mary; cherished grandfather of Karl, Glen, Jill (Jahan), Stefan (Janin), Christina and Joana; loving great-grandfather of Jude, dear father-in-law of Scott, Richard, and Shannon; brother-in-law of Renia; and many other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Maria and Karol Dyszynski, wife Cesia and brother Jurek.
Stanley was born in Torun, Poland.
When he was 15 years old, he and his family, along with one and a half million other Polish citizens, were deported by the Communist Russian government to Siberia.
Stanley and his family were released 2 years later when Russia joined the Allied forces. He and his brother joined the Polish Army, were stationed in the Middle East and fought in Italy, including the pivotal Battle of Monte Cassino.
During the war, he became best friends with Zbyszek Malaczynski.
He moved to England after the war, where Zbyszek introduced Stanley to his sister Cesia.
In 1951 Stanley and Cesia were married in London.
Stanley was awarded a degree in chemical engineering from the University of London.
Son Kris and daughter Barbara were born in England, then in 1956 the family moved to California where daughter Mary was born.
Stanley’s involvement in the Polish community was very important to him.
For many years he worked to preserve Polish culture and to support relatives in Poland.
Stanley had a long, distinguished career as a chemical engineer. Always a tireless worker, he and his friend Bert Van Loon started a side business, working on weekends and evenings with family members, to help finance the college educations of his children.
Stanley loved fishing, playing chess with family and most of all, gathering his children, grandchildren and great-grandchild for meals and laughter.
Stanley was a constant companion to Cesia during the last ten years of her life. When her kidneys failed, he faithfully brought her to dialysis treatments of 2-3 hours each, three times a week, cooked for her and tenderly cared for her every need.
Stanley had a strong faith in God and was devoted to his family. He will be lovingly remembered as the generous, caring and strong man he was, and will be missed by all who knew him.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that Stanley’s memory be honored with charitable donations to the Lowiczanie Polish Folk Dance Ensemble of SF, or the Polish Club of San Francisco, or to a charity of your choice .
