Schenectady - Stanley J. Ziobrowski, 87, passed away Tuesday August 22, 2023.
Stan was born in Schenectady the son of the late Edmund and Winifred Ziobrowski and was a lifelong area resident. He worked for 38 years as the Transportation Supervisor at Mohonasen School District in Rotterdam. Stan leaves behind his wife, 6 children (3 daughters and 3 sons), 14 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and 3 brothers.
Stan was infected with the game of golf at the age of 6 and it has been the central preoccupation of his life. He started working at The Edison Club when he was 11, caddying and shagging balls and played so well as a young man he earned a golf scholarship to Florida State. Upon returning from Florida, Stan joined Ballston Spa Country Club as a Junior member in 1952 to qualify to play in Saratoga County tournaments. His best score is a 66 that he scored in the 1960's and he has 11 hole in 1's to his credit. One of his fondest memories on the links was playing a 13-year-old Jack Nicklaus when Stan was 16, "The Golden Bear" getting the better of him that day. Nicklaus even mentioned the round in his 1997 autobiography.
The funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family.
