Stan's family has written the following biography:

Stanisław Sudoł was born on July 19th, 1958 in Wrocław, Poland, he was the son of the late Jan and Maria (Bielecka) Sudoł.
As a young man Stanisław, Stan or ‘Stasiu’ as friends called him pursued many interests:  hiking, boating, swimming, music, singing, gardening, photography, languages, and devouring every book that broadened his knowledge – especially the Bible and those about history.  He assisted at his father’s farm producing tulips to sell at the local market.
It was during the night watches at the farm that Stan with his faithful German Shepherd dog ‘Ringo’ would often lay staring at a star strewn sky pondering the deeper questions in life.  He dreamed of adventure serving in the Merchant Navy but ended up looking in a different direction.
He graduated high school and college at the Polytechnic University in Wrocław, Poland with a mechanical engineering degree.  During this time he met his dear ‘Gosia’ (Małgorzata) and the phrase ‘love at first sight’ can describe everything that happened next.
Stanisław Zbigniew Sudoł and Małgorzata Skiba were married on December 22nd, 1980 in Wrocław followed by their first son Łukasz (Luke) – 81’, twin boys Wojtek (Albert) and Piotr (Peter) – 84’, all three in Wrocław and their youngest son David – 87’ in Italy.
Stan was certified in gardening and showed resourcefulness and an entrepreneurial spirit by constructing his own greenhouses out of flexible plastic foil and metal framing; growing and selling tomatoes, cucumbers, and carnations.  This was a happy if not sometimes exhausting time for the Sudol family with interruptions at night from crying babies and fierce storms that required an emergency response to save greenhouses that were being blown apart.
Any one whom Stan met had to feel his sincere personal interest in them.  He loved people but even more so he loved God.  His spiritual-mindedness was no doubt what led him to engage in discussions about the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses who had been visiting his father at home.  The Witnesses traveled by car from a far distance to share Bible truths with Stan even while under a time of gas-rationing.  Their sincere interest, Christian love and conduct made a deep impact on Stan and the family.
The Sudol family was confidently led by Stan to places far and different from their homeland in search of opportunity.  After moving to Italy for nearly a year, Stan set course for the United States where the family has now resided since their arrival in January, 1988; first briefly in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania then on to Carlisle, Pennsylvania until 1991 when the family settled in their present home in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
Stan was a longtime local business man.  He was the owner of CADMASTERS – a print shop making many a sign and banner and serving many satisfied customers.  Most recently Stan’s work included manufacturing sales.
Baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in April of 2000 Stan served as member of the local Camp Hill Congregation and diligently taught and guided his wife and four sons with regular Bible instruction so that they could get to know the loving God, Jehovah.  He invested his time and energy into the community through his lifelong voluntary service.  This included countless kind words and deeds along with Bible-education work, even helping those looked down upon by society and learning foreign languages to touch the heart of the local Russian and Spanish speaking population.
Stan felt most at rest and loved being at the beach with his wife taking in the sights, sounds, and smells.
Stan lived and imparted guiding principles to everyone he met such as: Love for God and for people.  Never stop learning.  Have a thirst for knowledge.  Nothing is impossible.  Create opportunity.  Be genuine and compassionate.  Accept all.  Search for the deeper meaning of life.  His family would like you all to consider and share them too.  His memory, love and wisdom will continue.
