Stanley Robert Buehrer, 86, of Adrian, MI and former resident of Archbold OH, passed away Monday, September 25, 2023, surrounded by his loved ones and in the care of Hospice of Lenawee in Adrian, MI. Stan is remembered best as a loving husband, father and friend. Stan and his late twin brother, Philip Buehrer, were born in Wauseon, OH on Sept. 16, 1937, to Herbert and Lucille (Planson) Buehrer.  On Sept. 20, 1958, he married Gaye Anne Sweet. Gaye passed away in 1996 and in 2009 he married Nancy Lein of Adrian MI, and she survives.

Both Stan and Phil enjoyed playing high school football, basketball and baseball. They graduated from Archbold High School in 1955. Both continued their love for sports in college and went on to graduate from Ohio Northern University each with a bachelor’s degree in education in 1959, and they later earned their masters degrees from the University of Illinois in 1961.  Stan began his teaching career in the Rockford School District.  He spent several years in Neillsville, WI where he helped run a children’s home for orphans.  He returned to Ohio in 1967 to accept a teaching position in Archbold, OH where he and Gaye raised their two sons and three daughters.  Throughout his career as an educator, Stan enjoyed coaching basketball, baseball, and football.  Among Stan’s most enjoyable hobbies were golfing, woodworking, hunting and taking numerous fishing trips to Canada and Michigan with his dad, brothers, and other family and friends over the years. He loved to stay active and spent many hours volunteering his time to his church and to groups like Habitat for Humanity and Hospice of Lenawee County.
