Stanislaw “Stan” Okonski, 67, of Wood Dale, was born in Poland in February 1956 and passed on February 6th, 2024 in his home. After any amount of contact, it was quick to perceive his love for music, photography, and the Chicago Bears. After immigrating to the United States in 1980, he sought the American dream in his pursuit of happiness, starting a family, and demonstrating his expert craftsmanship as a machinist. He is survived by his former spouse of 12 years, Ania (Harnish), his children Angelica (Kiezel) and Michael, and his grandchild Nikolai. He was the loving son of the late Wojciech and Helena, brother of the late Jozef, and proud brother to Alina, Franciszek, Ryszard, and Kazimierz. He loved all that called him brother, uncle, and friend, and leaves us all with fond memories.

Or prayers and deepest condolence goes out to both Angelica and Michael in the loss of your father. I know from our past conversations with this sweet and funny father of yours that he loved you both and that grandson beyond words. He was always so great to reach out to us here in Arkansas to check in on us, and we are blessed to have had him added to our family when Michael married into the family. I loved his cool accent, even though I sometimes had difficulty getting every word, but he was quick to say no you are the one with an accent and I love listening to you when we speak. Stan was a loving, kind and giving person, and we are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to have known him. Time is a precious thing that we have, and my family is blessed to have had a piece of time in our life with Stan. I know that there are no words to console the hearts of those who loved Stan, but know that we will hold you all in our prayers for the peace that can only come from God. Blessings, Rev.'s Gary and Melissa Maskell.
