Obituary

Stanley L. Yastrzemski, Jr., 78, passed away at the Embassy of Loyalsock, Pennsylvania on March 30, 2022.  He was born in Southampton 10/7/43 to Stanley L. and Lottie Yastrzemski.

He graduated from Southampton High School, where he played football, basketball and baseball.  He then attended Harvard University with a major in mathematics and continued to play football for the Harvard Crimson.  While at Harvard he attended many Red Sox games watching his cousin YAZ play baseball. After Harvard, he returned home to begin his teaching career of math and computers at Southampton High School.  During his summers he completed his Master’s degree at Rutgers University in New Jersey.  While teaching, he coached Varsity football as assistant to Herb Goldsmith and  JV basketball with Varsity coach Joe Romanosky.

He enjoyed playing golf as a member of Southampton Golf Club.  He also enjoyed volunteering at Heart of the Hamptons and later at Goodies for the Troops in Wellsboro, PA.  His passions were sports, walks along the beach, skiing trips with friends, broad way shows ,dinner and movies, crabbing, clamming and a challenging crossword puzzle.  His pies, canned goods and baked clams were enjoyed by many.  But most of all he carried out a tradition, started by his father, growing and selling dahlias with his nephew at the little flower stand on Scuttle Hole Road.

Stanley is survived by his “favorite sister” (“only” according to Stanley) Diane Bill and her husband, Cecil  of Wellsboro, Pa.  His niece Robin Helgerson of Water Mill, his nephew, Robert S. Bubka of Water Mill and his great-nephew, Jarrett Helgerson of Water Mill.  Although he never married or had children, his life was full of his wonderful friends and relatives.
