Stanley R. Sullentrup, age 78, passed away on Saturday, July 3, 2021 surrounded by his family.
Stan was born in Fort Benning, Georgia on April 25, 1943, but he was a life long resident of Missouri. He graduated from Eureka High School in 1961 and went on to become a meatcutter for National Grocery Stores, and a member of Meatcutters Local 88.
Stan is survived by his wife, Kathleen; his five children, Ray Sullentrup (Donna), Craig Sullentrup (Christine), Tammy Sullentrup Harpe (Michael), Thomas Hoelscher (Elsa), and Tammie Whitehead (Kenny); his nine grandchildren, Danielle Espey (Matt), Jillian Short (Zack), Rob Sullentrup, Brandon Whitehead, Jordan Harpe, Nickolaus Sullentrup, Cade Sullentrup, Cole Sullentrup, and Sean Harpe; as well as one great-granddaughter, Emersyn Espey; his siblings, Janice Boucher (Mike), Nova Davis (Pat), Michelle Davis, and Chuck Davis (Verena); and many nieces and nephews.
Stan was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Joseph Sullentrup; and his mother, Laverne Sullentrup-Davis; his brothers Raymond Edward Sullentrup, Frank Davis, and his sisters Cherie Ziegelmeyer, and Debbie Davis.
Stan was "THE MAN". He loved God, his country, and his family. Like his namesake, he loved baseball. He also loved spending time fishing, golfing, and riding his tractor. He was larger than life and lit up the room with his quick wit and smile. Stan was deeply loved by all and will be greatly missed.
