Stan was born December 21, 1929 in Grand Rapids, Michigan to Stanley and Marion (Burges) Levanduski and they preceded him in death. On April 12, 1952 in Grand Rapids he married the former Jacquelyn J. Jenne and she preceded him in death on December 24, 2018.
He grew up with five siblings: Pat, June, Janet, Jim and Larry. Stan graduated from Grand Rapids Union High School and attended Grand Rapids Junior College before earning his bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University. He served in the United States Army after he married Jackie and the family moved to Cadillac to pursue a teaching position.

Stan was a member of First Baptist Church in Cadillac for many years and more recently was a member of Living Light Church of Lake City. He was a founding member of CASA and served on the board for many years. He spent hours organizing and scheduling for CASA baseball and summer basketball.

"He was one of the most influential people in my youth. I will always be thankful to him for his coaching and teaching. I still remember his poem he told us. It’s easy to sit when the going gets tough. It’s easy to ride when the road is to rough. It’s easy to say I don’t care. But don’t you dare."

"Mr.Levanduski was a wonderful teacher, that I shared and recalled about, of my school memories. One of the best, educators. Math is in everything. Mr.Levanduski's dedication to his students, I believe was to prepare them for life and to stay or become good people in the world. Someone you can count on. I will carry you on in my thoughts. You are a great man. Thank You!!!"
