Stanley Welton Mutersbaugh

Stanley MutersbaughStan 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.

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, December 2, at 12 noon at Bretton Woods Covenant Church, 925 Bretton Road, Lansing. Visitation before the service at 11am and during the luncheon following the service.

Sorry to hear this. Stan and I were childhood pals growing up in Highland Park, MI. I have may good memories together, hitch-hiking to Niagara, fishing at his folks cottage, the old Model A Ford that we never got to work, etc.
We lost track of each other after High school and Stan will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear about Stan, he was a great man and such a good friend to Dad. How I wish I could come to his service! You will all be in my mind and heart.

God rest his soul. Our families go way back as I remember making filters in the basement with my father as a little boy. I recall the 50s when Stan and Ann fell in love, my mother and father thought the world of them. Dad and Stan were related through dad’s mother Roxie and Stan’s father Ross. May the Lord be with the Family now in their time of need. Stan is now with his Heavenly Family and they are all rejoicing in Heaven together.

Remembering Stan from our school days at Highland Park and also our re-connection in Sarasota, Florida. Enjoyed dinners watching Michigan State play basketball at the sports diners.
He and Ann also attended many of our “March H.P. Lunch Reunions” held in Naples each year.
Sincere Sympathy to the family.
