Stanley Odling Obituary

Stanley Carl Odling, age 83 of Delavan, WI, died March 4, 2024, at his home.  He was born at home November 12, 1940, in Richmond Township, WI, the son of the late Emil and Lavina Odling. On January 14, 1961 in Spring Prairie, WI, Stan was united in marriage to Maria Risseeuw. He worked all of his life farming.  While farming, he also worked at Mann Bros. Construction and Local 139 as an Equipment Operator.  Stan along with his wife in 1980 started Odling Construction which is currently owned and ran now by his son, Dean and wife, Reta. 

Stan loved many adventures. He enjoyed racing snowmobiles, pulling tractors, four wheeling and going to Sturgis, SD. He was a true entrepreneur from starting Odling Construction, moving houses out of the Milwaukee area to Delavan Lake Area, purchasing many rental homes, and the purchase of the Radar Base in Elkhorn. After retiring, Stan really enjoyed their home on the weekends in Browntown, WI, restoring cars and tractors, going to farm shows and thresheree’s, and his horse racing with Silent Win and Who Let the Dogs Out. Stan was a busy man, a man of little words.  He has really loved being able to watch his family grow and his Sunday dinners with them.  His adventurous mind and endeavors will be greatly missed by his family.
