Dr. Stanley Edward Dary, D.O.

September 1, 1936 ~ January 21, 2024 (age 87) 87 Years Old

Tribute

Was reunited in Heaven with his loving wife, Doreen, on January 21, 2024 at the age of 87. Loving dad of Alena (Allen Jr.) Witkowski. Cherished Papa of Allen Witkowski III and Alexander Witkowski. Stanley will be greatly missed by his other relatives and many friends.

Stanley was born to Regina and Walter Dary, the youngest of five siblings (Elizabeth, Bill, Lenore, Louise) in Hurley, WI.  Babe, as he was known to his family, fondly remembered playing accordion in his father's tavern which served the miners and lumber workers in the area.  He graduated with the Hurley High School class of 1954.  He moved to Milwaukee where he worked, studied, and graduated from  Marquette University in 1962.  Stan heard his true calling and pursued his Doctor of Osteopathy at Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery where he graduated in 1969.  He completed his internship in 1970 at the Pontiac Osteopathy Hospital in Pontiac, Michigan.

Along the way he met the true love of his live, Doreen Glowacki, whom he married in 1966 at St. James Parish in Franklin, WI.  They welcomed a beautiful baby daughter, Alena, in 1967.  The happy family moved to Milwaukee where Stan set up his surgical and family practice office in Wauwatosa based out of Lakeview Hospital where he practiced and Doreen ran the business until he retired.

A devout Catholic, Stan was a devoted father and husband.  He loved to travel with his family, especially to Sedona, Arizona.  Through the years he could be seen walking the neighborhoods with a terrier by his side. A meticulous surgeon in the operating room, he paid the same detailed attention to the construction and upkeep of his Brookfield home he built in 1977. 

Stan was a thoughtful and modest man who was quick with an earnest compliment and tried to look for the best in every situation.  His kindness and honesty with friends, family and patients will be truly missed. 

The family would like to recognize all of the care workers who spent time with Stan and the family in his final months.  The wonderful people at Evin at Oconomowoc and Brighton Hospice cannot be thanked enough for their loving and compassionate service.

A Visitation will take place on Tuesday January 30, 2024 at St. Mary’s Visitation Parish, 1260 Church Street Elm Grove, from 10 AM until the time of Mass of Christian Burial at 11 AM.
