Stanley E. Bollerud, age 73, of Atrium Care Center in Mineral Point, formerly of Hollandale, passed away peacefully Thursday morning, February 16th, 2017, at the Upland Hills Hospital in Dodgeville, with family by his side.

He attended the Moscow Center Rural School, and graduated from the Hollandale High School in 1961. He attended MATC for two years and received an associate accounting degree. While living in Hollandale, Stanley worked doing taxes and accounting. He was a member of the Hollandale Lutheran Church. Stanley was an avid Packers and Badgers fan. He loved the out of doors and was very interested in the hunting and fishing activities of his family. He loved playing cards, grilling out, was a very good cook, and was an excellent pool player. In 2002 he moved to the Mineral Point Care Center, where he became part of the family and made life interesting for all of the residents and staff. Stanley never let his unfortunate auto accident at age 17 deter him from having a positive outlook on life. Stanley is survived by one sister, Myrna Severson, Janesville; sister-in-law, Stella Bollerud, Madison; 11 special nieces and nephews; several great nieces and nephews; great great nieces and nephews; and a special friend, Jill Cenite.
