Stanley D. Suss, 66, Sioux Falls, SD, died unexpectedly at his home on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, and went home to his final resting place.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Stanley Dean Suss was born June 02, 1956, in Windom, MN, to Paul R. and Louella J. (nee Bailey) Suss. He graduated from Worthington, MN, Senior High School in 1974, and worked various jobs before settling in Tea, SD, and Sioux Falls, SD.

Stanley’s strong love and passion for sports were known and appreciated by all who knew him. He was a master of sports facts, and trivia, and could remember dates and memorable events like no one else. He truly loved sharing his knowledge of sports and talking to anyone who would listen about sports. He loved watching the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings and would often wager friendly bets on the games with his Wisconsin rivalry relatives, namely his brother-in-law Phil and nephew Zachary.

Along with the professional sports he loved, Stanley always looked forward to March Madness and the Final Four tournament. In his earlier years, he made many trips to attend games/activities with some of his brothers and other friends. He liked to golf whenever he got the chance and especially enjoyed golfing with his siblings and other relatives in “friendly” competitions.

Stanley valued his lifelong friends and looked forward to visiting with them whenever he could and made the annual trip to Worthington, MN, for Turkey Day so he could see and visit with his many friends who came back to celebrate. This annual pilgrimage was one of the many things he looked forward to every year.

Stanley is survived by brothers and sisters,  Roger, Canby, OR, Charles (Crista), Brookfield, WI, Frank (Nancy), Jacksonville, FL, Jeff (Mary Lou), Tomball, TX, Sharon (Verlin) Ailts, Yankton, SD, and Michelle (Phil), Waterford, WI; many nieces and nephews, Scott (Jane) Suss, Erin Suss, Chad (Greta) Suss, Courtney Suss, Nick (Emily) Suss, Holly (Aaron) Pederson, Travis (Amy) Suss, Justin Suss, Derick Suss, Elizabeth (Arturo) Navas, Ellen Suss, Jared (Annie) Ailts, Lesleigh (Brian) Ratino, Alex Glembin, Zachary Glembin, and Cameron Glembin; several great-nephews and great-nieces; and his life-long friends who were always by his side, Bruce Wilson, and Mike and Colette Osterberg.

Stanley was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Louella; his siblings, Craig, Douglas “Dugan”, and Joan; and sister-in-law, Christie.

    I was deeply saddened when hearing about the loss of my Worthington brother Stanley. My sympathies go out to his family at this time. Where does one begin as he was one in a million. As I reflect on the many great times hanging with him in our younger days… it brings many smiles and tears of joy. Even though there would be gaps in our gatherings we could always pick up where we left off. I’m so glad to have known Stanley and to able to say he was a great friend. I loved him like a brother.
    Until we meet again Stanley Steamer, may you Rest in Peace Brother.
    Your pal, James “Taco” Terrones

    I was deeply saddened to read the news of Stan’s passing. In addition to a great friend, Stan and Mike Ling were my beer-drinking coaches and cruising buddies! I always looked forward to hanging out with the “older” guys!! Stan had a way of making everyone feel good about themselves! Thanks for being such a great friend, Stan!! I’ll always remember you and the good times we all had!!!
