In 1951, after WW II, Stanley immigrated to the United States from a displaced persons camp in Germany, and settled in Philadelphia, PA, with his wife and two sons. He was a member of the Philadelphia local chapter – United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America and later founded Stanley Misjuns, Inc., a general contracting firm specializing in retail store construction, servicing the Atlantic Coast and the Midwest.
