June 19, 1937 – June 14, 2020
Stanley E. Bielski, of Old Lyme CT, died peacefully at Middlesex Hospital on June 14, 2020. Stan was born on June 19, 1937, in Moosic, PA, the eldest son of Stanley and Victoria Bielski. He is survived by his beloved wife Diane (Pettit) Bielski, his younger brother Richard (Patricia) Bielski of Essex, MD and his three children, Greg (Diane) Bielski of Easton, MA, Lauren (Richard) Deneault of Denver, NC, and Daniel Bielski of Horsham, PA. Stan is also survived by his three stepchildren, Angel Vernon, of Woodstock, CT, Christine (Michael) Margiotta of Old Lyme, CT, and Jon (Chris) Vernon of East Haddam, CT. Stan also leaves the mother of his children, Elizabeth Joan Dulin of Littleton, ME, thirteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews as well as a multitude of friends. Stan graduated from the U.S Coast Guard Academy, Class of 1959 and spent the following next six years in that service at various duty stations. Upon leaving the service, Stan then went on to work for the CIA in Washington, DC and eventually to the Digital Electronics Corporation in MA from which he retired. Stan moved to Old Lyme in 2005 to marry Diane and became involved in the local communities, serving as a member of the East Haddam Community Lions Club, the Essex Veterans Hall, the Old Guard, and the Old Lyme Congregational Church. Stan was always curious and a lifelong learner, always keeping up on current events, and never shy about sharing his views. He was famous for his “dry” sense of humor which brought much laughter and amusement to his family and friends. Though quiet, Stan had a deep love for his entire family and cared about them very much. The family will celebrate this wonderful man’s life at a later date when all can gather.
