He was born on July 19, 1953 in Munising, the son of Benjamin and Mildred (Salisbury) Chilicki. Stan graduated from Trenary High School in 1972. He loved to have his morning coffee at the gas station in Trenary where he kept everyone entertained with his jokes, funny stories, and making some people’s day with his friendly smile. Stan loved helping friends and people he just met. If you needed anything, you could just ask Stan. He was a loving and kind person. After retiring from the Trenary Sawmill, he moved to Gladstone, Michigan where he met more wonderful people. Stan enjoyed going to breakfast and lunch, and just hanging out spending time looking at Lake Michigan. He loved talking to and visiting with his sisters.
