Stanley Burton Feuchtwanger, 91, of Waverly, and formerly of Frederika, passed away on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014, at the Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community in Waverly.

Stanley was born on Sept. 29, 1922, in Chickasaw County, near Ionia, the son of Bart and Helen (Sheldon) Feuchtwanger. He attended school and graduated from Nashua High School. On Dec. 9, 1945, he was united in marriage to Doris Muench, on the Muench family farm near Ionia.

Stan was "a farmer with numerous enterprising endeavors." Not only did he repair broken items, but was also creative in designing and building new things. For example, in Frederika, he built a three level home in a lime quarry. His workshop was in the bottom level and the home also included a much prided elevator. Stan also made an eight-row planter before they could ever be purchased. Together, Stan and Doris enjoyed wintering in Florida.

Stanley is survived by his wife, Doris; two daughters, Diana (Larry) Konkle, of Sun Prairie, Wis., and Judy (Gerry) Gress, of Waverly; four grandchildren, Darby Cooper, Andy Konkle, Annette Riese, Jessica Carfrae; four great-grandchildren, Drew Carfrae, Riley Cooper, Adam Riese and Liam Riese; a brother, Ralph (Shirley) Feuchtwanger; a sister, Lucille Mathews; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, grandson, Joshua Cooper, and a still born son.
