Stanley Savinski (Savickis), 93, of Sheboygan, passed away on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at Sheboygan Health Services. He was born December 16, 1923 in Sheboygan to Andrew and Margaret (Kudirka) Savickis. Stanley was the 1st to enlist from Sheboygan after Pearl Harbor, and proudly served with the 8th Branch of the US Air Force working with the secret G4.

A true artist Stanley loved painting and drawing. Watercolor landscapes were his specialty. In his later years, he continued to enjoy his art and enjoyed the adult coloring books. Another favorite pastime was fishing off the south pier, but his family was his pride and joy and creating memories with them was what he loved doing most. He always enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
