Stanley was born to Joseph Kryznel and Anna Dziedzic Kryznel in Wilkes Barre, PA. His father, an immigrant from Poland, worked in the coal mines. In the early 1940s the family moved to New Haven in pursuit of economic opportunity. Stanley served his country during World War II, enlisting in the Navy in 1944 and did his part to help defeat fascism. In 1952 he joined the New Haven police department, serving for 38 years. In 1954 he married Celine Wanat. After retirement in 1987, Stanley spent countless days with friends on Long Island Sound, angling for stripers and blues. When not on the water, he enjoyed tending his tomato plants, fixing cars, and tinkering with all manner of small engine machines.
Stanley was preceded by his wife Celine in 2004. His siblings; Teddy, Stella, Jennie and Freddy also all preceded him. He is survived by his daughters Kathleen Furman, Carole and her husband Shane McClellan, son Stanley Kryznel, six grandchildren and one great granddaughter.
