Nawrocki, Stanley - North Smithfiled  
NAWROCKI, STANLEY FRANK 13 August 1925 to 28 June 2015 With great regret, the family of Stanley Frank Nawrocki of North Smithfield, Rhode Island wishes to inform family and friends of his death, age 89, on 28 June 2015 at Oakland Grove Health Care where he found many friends, hope and memories in his last months. Stan was born on 13 August 1925 (he tells that it was a Friday) to Leon Nawrocki and Anna (Machij) Nawrocki. He was the middle child of three including the late Alyce (Nawrocki) Kuchar and Edward Francis Nawrocki. He was married for 59.9 years to his wife Edna (Gryszowka) Nawrocki having lovingly fathered two children: Leon William Nawrocki, whose partner is Elizabeth Weekes, and Dalen Ann (Nawrocki) Favali, whose husband is Joseph Favali. Stan was also proud of his two grandchildren, Magdalena and Anna Nawrocka-Weekes. He will be fondly remembered by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends both here and abroad. Stan was educated in the Cumberland School System leaving prematurely to enter the US Navy during World War II on a "Kiddie Cruise" which lasted 4 years from age 17 to 21. He crewed the USS Biloxi and is the penultimate survivor of that ship leaving the sole Biloxi veteran, his dear friend, Roy Pitts of Atlanta, Georgia. He was honorably discharged from the Navy as a Second Class Radarman in August 1946 after seeing action in most of the major battles in the Pacific theatre including the Marshall Islands, Truk and the Marianas Islands, the Admiralty Islands, Saipan, the Philippines, Formosa, Iwo Jima, Yap, Guam, Okinawa, Indochina, Nagasaki and Tokyo. His "salad" (worn decorations) was full and colorful. Not wishing to spend the rest of his life as the "Run of the Mill", and at the urging of his mother and sister, he returned to school to earn his GED, and then using the GI Bill obtained his bachelor degree in education at Rhode Island College of Education (now RIC). He started teaching in the Cumberland School System with 7th and 8th graders at the Mendon Road School and soon after became their Principal. His talents were spotted by the late Bernard Norton, Superintendent of Cumberland Schools, and was lovingly moved to school administration. After 35 years, he retired as Assistant Superintendent specializing in maintaining the "family/local" based school bus transportation system of Cumberland, now long gone. Unable to retire to a passive life, Stan went on to help the newly reborn Pawtucket Red Sox. Eventually, he returned to his true love of feeding and maintaining animals, especially horses and dogs, at Lincoln Downs that has become Twin River Casino. He continued to work at Twin River well into his eighties, when the management eventually found a way to retire him for good. In his spare time, he loved to fish both fresh and salt water, to pick apples in the autumn at Bascomb's Farm, to visit friends and family unexpectedly and to employ a "five finger discount" to any item not nailed or loosely tethered. In his travels, Stan always made it a point to be friendly to all and to "treat everybody with respect!" He will be missed for his directed honesty, sarcastic humor and his insightful common sense. Tuesday, July 7, 2015 arrangements include 9:30AM visitation in the Holt Funeral Home, 510 So. Main St., Woonsocket, Mass at the Polish National Catholic Church of Our Saviour, 500 Smithfield Road, Woonsocket, Rhode Island at 11:00AM followed by interment at the parish cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you support the education of some young person or adult seeking higher education. www.holtfuneralhome.com
