The Passing of Dr. Stanley Diesch

Messages of condolence and shared loss have been circulating this week among members of Minnesota-Uruguay Partners upon news that Stan Diesch, the former president of the chapter and a great friend to many, had passed away just shy of his 92nd birthday.

The Star Tribune published this obituary, which describes the important work Stan did at home and abroad, and his many enduring achievements.

Stan is survived by his wife Darlene, who has also played a key role in shaping the chapter's work spanning decades at the organization.

Along with Darlene, Stan received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” from Partners of the Americas, based in Washington, DC, and presented at an international meeting in Quito, Ecuador in 2002.

He became so well known in Uruguay for his contributions to veterinary medicine there that Stan was asked by the President of the Republic of Uruguay to serve as Honorary Consul in Minnesota, a role he served for 6 years.

Stan’s funeral service will be held 11 am Saturday, May 20 at Roseville Lutheran Church (1215 Roselawn Ave., Roseville) with visitation beginning at 10 am. Interment Roselawn Cemetery.
