Obituary

Stanley Szajgin, 93, of Springfield passed away October 29, 2019 at Baystate Medical Center, after a short illness, surrounded by his loving family. Stanley, son of the late Jan and Maria Szajgin, was born in Horpyn, Poland on August 10, 1926. Stanley was taken from his family at the start of WWII at age 13 and put into forced labor for most of the war. He was eventually liberated by American forces. He joined the Polish Guard serving under US military orders for the remainder of the war. When the unit dispersed, as a displaced person, Stanley traveled to America on a troop ship. He became a proud American citizen and was eventually able to reestablish contact with his family in Poland many years later. Stanley first worked on farms in NY and MA and eventually learned the trade of machinist specializing in precision gear making. He spent many years working in machine shops around the Springfield area as well as the Springfield Armory. Stanley was a hard-working man who loved taking care of his home and yard. He enjoyed fixing things and being outdoors. Above all, he loved spending time with family and friends. Stanley will be missed by all who knew him especially his beloved wife of 65 years, Anna (Mango) Szajgin; his children, Michael (Patricia, predeceased), John and his wife Tracey; and Carol Ann and her husband Basil; his grandson, Adam; his surviving brother and two sisters in Poland; and many extended family members, nieces and nephews, and friends. Visiting hours for Stanley will be held Sunday, November 3, 2019 from 1PM to 4PM at Sampson’s Chapel of the Acres, 21 Tinkham Road, Springfield. Family and friends are invited to meet directly at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 1023 Parker Street, Springfield on November 4, 2019 at 11AM for Stanley’s Liturgy of Christian Burial. Rites of Committal and Interment will follow in Gate of Heaven Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Stanley’s memory may be made to the National Federation of the Blind of Greater Springfield, PO Box 3512, Springfield, MA 01101-3512.
