(Laura) Stanek of Olive Branch, Mississippi; daughter, Tina Marie (Aaron) White of  Wadena; two sisters, Susan Stanek and Catherine Vaslet; former wife, Crystal Riddle of Wadena; nine grandchildren, Toby Wood, Jasmyn Wood, Jenna Wood, Morgan Stanek, Cody Stanek, Kymberly Stanek, Leila Sanford, Damian Stanek and Paisley Stanek; and a great-granddaughter, Kaylyn Stanek.
