Stanley was born in the town of New Hope on February 22, 1931, to Peter and Martha (Glodowski) Hintz. He met his future wife Esther Zaborowski picking potatoes in a nearby field. They married on June 2, 1951, and together they had three children.
After his marriage, Stanley was drafted into the United States Army. Inducted January 1952. He served in Korea from June 1952 until his honorary discharge in October 1953 as a staff sergeant. Stanley and Esther moved to Milwaukee to find work until they could purchase a dairy farm. The farm was his pride and joy.
After retiring at the age of 62, Stanley sold the dairy cows but continued to raise beef 15 years after his retirement. One of Stanley’s many joys was taking his “Gator” for a drive around his farm to see how the nearby fields were doing, walking through his woods, and sitting somewhere quiet to enjoy the nature. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, especially bow hunting until he was 90 years old.
Stanley was very devoted to his family. Spending time with her children and grandchildren has given her the greatest joy of her life. He was devoted to his faith and was a member of the Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart in Polonia.
Stanley is survived by his beloved wife Esther of 70 years; daughter Linda A. Mueller, Oshkosh; son Jim A. Hintz, Rosholt; and his daughter Arlene M. Hintz, Bonduel; and four grandchildren Brendan Mitts-Hintz, Tristan Mitts-Hintz, Mallory M. Pliska and Aaron M. Pliska. He is survived by his sister Regina (Mike) Karpinski, Milwaukee; brother-in-law Daniel Zaborowski, Amherst Junction, and many other relatives and friends.
Stanley was predeceased by his parents; brothers Harry, Bill, Emil and Irving, sisters Esther and Doris and son-in-law Jerry Mueller.
Stanley’s family would like to give special thanks to the nurses and staff at Aspirus Riverview Hospital for their care and support.
