Stanley J. “Stosh” Studzinski, Jr.

January 3, 1957 - February 26, 2022

On Saturday, February 26, 2022, Stanley J. Studzinski, Jr., affectionately known as “Stan,” “Studji” or “Stosh”, age 65, of Newark, DE, joined his many Angels. Born in Chester, PA, on January 3, 1957, he was the son of the late Stanley J. and Sara E. (O’Brien) Studzinski, Sr.

Stan worked at Sun Oil in Marcus Hook, PA, for ten years, Pepsi Co, in Wilmington, for several years and Chrysler in Newark, for a brief period. He received a Masters of Arts in Archaeology as well as a Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management. Stan then became a teacher at Hodgson Vo-Tech school. For over 18 years he taught the millwright program which he formed and engineered as the number one program in the tri-state area. Stan was known by his students as “Mr. S” or “S.” During this time of his career, he touched a countless number of lives with his knowledge, life lessons and wit.

Stan had many hobbies, but his enjoyment was cooking for his family and each year growing his vegetable garden and sharing his garden with Jacob and Conner, his two grandsons.

Stan met his soul mate, Julie Carver, in April 1985, and they married 7 months later, starting their journey of life together for over 36 yrs. Stan is survived by his wife, Julie; three children, Richard Louis (Stephanie), Ilene Wilson (Mark), and Andrew Studzinski (Brianna); six grandchildren, Cora, Cole, Mady, Kayla, Jacob, and Conner; three sisters, Millie Davis (Ed), Lorraine Bentle (Sam), and Elaine Mueller (Rick); and several nieces and nephews.

Stan will be missed by many, and always loved forever by his family.

  • To Julie and family…Mr. S was a huge influence in my life. He helped pave the way for my career and my trade. If I never met him who knows where I would be now. The man will never be forgotten, we still talk about him to this day. He made a permanent impression on many lives, to say that is rare is an understatement.

  • My condolences to you Mrs. Studzinski and to your family. Mr. S will be remembered as a wonderful teacher in my heart. Mr. S taught my son, Travis Dash who attended Hodgson from 2012-2015. Travis enjoyed Mr. S millwright class and learned a lot about the industry. He engaged young men to do well in the field of Millwright and to strive for more never settle for less. My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of loss. Leslee Coppage
