PROSPECT — Mr. Stanley J. Audietis, 80, of Prospect passed away Monday, Nov. 28, 2016 at Waterbury Hospital. He was the loving husband, for 58 years, of Barbara (Celone) Audietis, who he met at Woolworth’s five and dime store.

Mr. Audietis was born Sept. 11, 1936 in Waterbury, a son of the late Stanley C. and Tophelia (Greggis) Audietis. He was retired as the owner for 30 years of Stanley’s Centerless Grinding in Prospect and was a communicant of St. Anthony Roman Catholic Church in Prospect. He was a hardworking man who was known for his witty sense of humor and his willingness to always lend a helping hand to anyone. He loved music, playing the piano and working on classic cars, especially his 1950 Pontiac convertible, which he completely restored from the ground up. Although being giant in stature, he was a kind, gentle soul, always willing to help others.
