Stanley Binversie

Stanley H. “Stubby” Binversie, 82, of Kiel and formerly of School Hill died Saturday evening, Dec. 11, 2021 at Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center.

He was born May 2, 1939 in Sheboygan, son of the late Henry and Elizabeth (Baer) Binversie. Stanley attended Holy Trinity Catholic School and was a 1957 graduate of Kiel High School.

On Nov. 14, 1964 he was united in marriage to Kay Kasal at St. Paul Catholic Church, Manitowoc. Stanley had a dairy products route for 5 years and a bulk milk route for 15 years, both for Lake to Lake. He was an insurance agent for 25 years and later worked for Amerequip for seven years until his retirement in 2004. During that time he was also involved with the Holy Trinity Men's Club, Kiel Jaycees—serving as president and state director—and the Manitowoc Expo Board, serving as its treasurer for 10 years. In his free time he also coached Little League and softball in School Hill for 20 years.

On June 3, 2006 Stanley was given the gift of life when he received a heart transplant. He was able to see his family grow and be involved in their activities for the past 15 years because of this gift.

Survivors include his wife, Kay; his children, Mary Beth (Tristan) Richards of Maine, Steve Binversie of Little Chute, Tom (Brenda) Binversie of Sheboygan, John (Sarah) Binversie of School Hill, Paula Binversie of Belgium, Kathy Binversie (Doug Dahm) of Elkhart Lake, Kevin Binversie of Sheboygan, MSgt Kurt (Melanie) Binversie of Okinawa, Japan, and Kraig (Mary) Binversie of School Hill; and son-in-law Bill (Laurie) Heckmann.
