Robert (Bob) Edward Stanislawski, 72, passed away on July 5, 2018, at his home in Winona, Minn. Bob was born on March 14, 1946, in Winona, to Frank and Esther Stanislawski. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, William, Tom and Pete; daughter, Brandi; and grandson, Ryan Stanislawski.
Bob graduated from Winona Senior High School, class of 1964, and went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree from Winona State University and his Master’s Degree in mathematics from the University of Missouri, Columbia. He was an educator at Babbitt Public Schools in Babbitt, Minn., before becoming a quality control engineer for Lake Center Industries in Winona. Bob was a devoted Catholic, celebrating at St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Winona.
His passions included mathematics, computer programing, building and inventing. Bob taught his children and grandchildren to be very hands-on in everything they did. In addition to spending quality time with his many grandchildren, he also enjoyed ice skating, sailing and biking. We will always remember him as a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
