Cartwright Funeral Homes


DOBROWOLSKI, SR., Stanley Anthony entered into eternal peace on February 16th in Florida with his 3 children by his side.

He was born in Boston Massachusetts to Ida and Anthony Dobrowolski. He was predeceased by his sister Helen and brother Hank. He is survived by his brother Edmund Dobrowolski and Hank's daughter Susan Honeywell.

Stanley was a family first above all else. He has three children Stanley Dobrowolski Jr, Kathleen Dobrowolski, Michael Dobrowolski. Also, his daughter in law Stacey Dobrowolski and his grandson's Joshua and Alex.

He was always busy coaching us as kids playing sports, playing golf at bunceys or teaching us how to bowl. He was always up for anything including chicken fights on floats in the pool, silly string fights at Christmas, rope climbing the flume ride all while he was in his 80s. He never missed anything when it came to his kids and grandson’s.

He served in the Navy and was a proud shell back. He was also chosen to take the Honor Flight which was a trip.of a lifetime for him.

He worked as a supervisor for Dorothy Muriel Bakery and worked for the Post Office. Many know him from also working at Boston Bowl and having the pro shop at Quincy Wonder Bowl.

He was extremely proud of being a "Polish Thoughbred" If you had an ounce of Polish in you, he would claim you as a cousin

He was also in the Polish clubs and tried to never miss a dance. I don't think there were any exceptions to any of us learning to polka on top of his feet. Including both his grandsons. His favorite song was the Helena Polka. His favorite meal was milk and moxie with kielbasa and perogis. He lived to learn and play all instruments especially with his grandson's. He was his own one-man band

He was not only a fantastic bowling coach but a very accomplished bowler. He won too many tournaments to list. We bowled as a family. He also played softball golfed anything to keep himself active. His love for life was unmatched.

He loved his Red Sox but never missed a Patriots game. He was one of the best armchair quarterbacks around. He also loved gardening and anything to do with yard work. He also mowed his own lawn and enjoyed changing the landscape on a regular basis.

He considered everyone his friend. He never went anywhere without running into someone he knew or making a new acquaintance. People often called him the Mayor of the Villages. Everyone seemed to know him.

He had a very close core group of friends that stuck together for decades. They bowled together golfed together vacationed together and were a family. It was such an incredible bond that us kids all grew up together in their group and still remain friends to this day.

Stan was and will always be remembered as a flirt. He never missed an opportunity to smile and laugh.

He will be truly missed by so many but we know he is waiting for us in the big bowling alley in the sky on the dance floor.
