Rosenthal, Stanley R.  
Rosenthal, Stanley R. Stanley Richard Rosenthal, age 68, resident of Two Rivers, passed away peacefully but unexpectedly Sunday, August 23, 2015 at the Aurora Medical Center surrounded by family and friends. Stanley was born October 12, 1946, in Oshkosh, WI, a son of Lorraine (Kirchhoff) Rosenthal and the late Wilmer R. Rosenthal. He graduated from Winneconne High School, and attended the University of Wisconsin. Stan proudly served his country as a US Marine in 1966-67, and for many years played an active role in the Marine Corps League. He married the former Chris (Ataman) Eggert on October 10, 1990 in Ohio. Stan was a quiet and shy man but will be remembered for his infectious smile. He worked in retail for many years and no one ever felt they didn't have his full attention. Stan's sense of humor was a special gift that brought laughter to many, often to the point of tears. Stan did not often talk about his feelings but his actions spoke for him, special cards, that morning cup of coffee, helping out with physical tasks. His way of showing his feelings was uniquely his own. He had a gift for seeing the beauty in nature and loved being outdoors. He loved to go deer hunting, not so much to shoot a deer, but rather to enjoy the (playing cards and so on). Stan loved Community Theater and had planned on joining the local group on his return to Wisconsin. It is unfortunate many of his friends and family missed this talent. One of his best roles was played in MASH, as Hawkeye. He earned accolades from the Wetumpka, Alabama audience. His final role was pretending to be well when in fact he was not. Now he has a new heavenly role to learn! He is survived by his wife of almost 25 years, Chris; their children, Steve Rosenthal (Donna) of Green Bay, WI, Shannan Rosenthal, Virginia, MAJ. Shane Rosenthal (Lisa) Corpus Christi, TX, Gregg Eggert (Kim) Austin TX, and Jason Eggert (Susan Pak) Oakland CA; and his mother, Lorraine Rosenthal of Oshkosh. Stan is also survived by his brother, Tom Rosenthal (Cheryl) Oshkosh WI; grandchildren: Brittany Bishop, Nick Rosenthal, Jordan Rosenthal, Erin Rosenthal, Grant Rosenthal, Brenden Eggert, Collin Eggert; and great-grandsons Carter and Zander Bishop; his mother-in-law, Elaine Ataman of King, WI; cousin, Dick (Jo) Rosenthal, and special friends, Ellen and Larry Jackson and Beth and Steve Benz. He was preceded in death by his father, Wilmer R. Rosenthal. A memorial service for Stan will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 4, 2015 at St. James Episcopal Church, 434 N. 8th St. Manitowoc. Rev. Diane Murray will officiate at the service, with military graveside rites taking place at the church immediately following the service by members of the VFW Post #1248 and American Legion Post #165 of Two Rivers. Cremation has taken place. The family will greet relatives and friends at St. James Episcopal Church, Friday, Sept. 4th, after 12:30 p.m. until the time of service at 2:00 p.m. Memorials may be made to the Oshkosh Humane Society or The Wounded Warriors. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.dejamartin.com . Deja & Martin Funeral Chapels, 1506 18th St. Two Rivers is assisting the Rosenthal family with funeral arrangements. The Rosenthal family would like to extend a special thank you to the 3rd floor nurses of Aurora Medical Center for the very kind & compassionate care; and also to Dr. Brian Mulheron and Dr. Andrew Yetter for the wonderful care given to Stan.
