Stanley J. Batog Obituary
Maj. Stanley J. Batog (U.S. Army-Ret.), of Citrus Springs, Florida, passed away peacefully on April 13, 2011 after a short illness. He was 88. Born April 5, 1923 in Fall River, Massachusetts, he was the son of Martin and Julia (Kiszka) Batog. He married the former G. Paulina Carreiro of Taunton, Massachusetts on June 26, 1948. He enlisted in the Army during World War II and honorably served his country in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War. During his lengthy military career, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Army Commendation Medal and several campaign ribbons. He retired from active service while stationed at the Natick Laboratories in Natick, Massachusetts. Following his retirement from the military, he pursued a civilian career working at Fenwal of Ashland, Massachusetts and for Raytheon in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He retired from Digital Equipment Corporation of Northborough, Massachusetts. Upon his full retirement, he moved to Florida in 1988. During his retirement years, he penned two books about his years growing up in Fall River during the Great Depression and his years of military service. He was involved in numerous veterans projects, including the Veterans History Project, the Veterans in the Classroom Program of Citrus County and the Vote in Honor of a Veteran voter registration initiative in Citrus County. He campaigned to change the National Anthem from The Star Spangled Banner to America the Beautiful., as he believed the later better reflected our country, people and spirit. He was a devoted father and dedicated to service to his country. He is survived by his wife of nearly 63 years, G. Paulina Batog of Citrus Springs, Florida, and five children: Danny E. Batog (Jayne Batog), Denise E. Batog and Deborah E. Batog, all of Franklin, Massachusetts, Danielle E. Batog (John Wohlfahrt) of Beverly Hills, Florida, and Donna E. Batog (Renee Batog), of Seffner, Florida. He also is survived by eight grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and two nieces. In lieu of a service, expressions of sympathy can be made to Hospice of Citrus County, Inc., P.O. Box 641270, Beverly Hills, Fl. 34464 or a veterans program of one's choice.
