Stan Mutersbaugh of Okemos, MI, age 86, passed from this life to the next on November 24, 2016. He was born in Red Oak, Iowa on August 24, 1930, the son of Ross and Ella (Welton) Mutersbaugh. Stan grew up in Detroit and graduated from Michigan State University in 1952. It was there he made life-long friends in the Delta Tau Delta fraternity and became a Spartan fan. Stan served in Korea as a second lieutenant in the Army. Afterwards, he took over his father’s business, Midwest Air Filter, as owner and manager for more than thirty years.
Stan was a devoted husband, father and friend. He taught us to live with integrity, explore the world, and to love God and family. He will be missed by the many people whose lives he touched.
Surviving are his beloved wife of 60 years, Ann; 2 daughters, Lisa (William) Way of Raleigh, NC and Susan (Greg) Baca of Boulder, CO; 4 grandchildren, Rachel and Andrew Way, Jonah and Ella Baca; many nieces and nephews including Judy Hirt Moore (Reg) of Redditch, England and Rudy Hirt (Mary Jo) of Okemos. He was preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law Evelyn and Rudolph Hirt and niece Patricia Hirt Rosenberger.
The family would like to thank the staff at Brookdale Meridian for the excellent care, kindness and love they showed to Stan and all the Mutersbaugh girls.
