He was born Aug. 12, 1943 in Superior, Wis., the son of James and Nettie (Sibley) Yeazle. Stanley attended school in Spooner, Wis.

Stanley is survived by two daughters: Robin (Timothy) Hafeman and Betty Yeazle both of Belmont; two granddaughters: Ashlynn and Brooklyn Hafeman; one sister: Joyce Backer of Rice Lake; one brother: Gerald (Lynn) Yeazle of Darlington; and a special friend: Alice Yeazle. He was preceded in death by his parents; five sisters: Mary Lou Moyer, Jean Payson, Janice Payson, Betty Yeazle, and Laura Strinke; and one brother: James Yeazle.
