Simkins

Stanley Robert

Age 85, of Woodbury, MN

Formerly of Lake Elmo

Passed away at home on February 5, 2021 surrounded by family and friends. Stanley grew up on a dairy farm. His parents instilled in him a strong work ethic, humility, importance of community and service to others. He had a long and storied career with Roadway Freight and was proud to be a Teamster. The farm never left him. He restored Farmall tractors and worked the ground well into his seventies because he loved it so. His legacy is his children: Roxanne (Don), Ed (Deb), Brenda (Sam) and his grandchildren: Trevor, Victoria, Lauren, Isabella, Grace and Sonia. He touched so many by sharing life experience, listening and being present. Give him a Bailey’s and a moment of your time and laughter would flow like a river. Private family service, 11am February 11, 2021. Livestream available at www.stpeterafton.org, then click on media. Memorials preferred to Cocosheartdogrescue.org and Samaritanspurse.org. A celebration of life will take place in Summer 2021.
