STAN ZAGLESKI SR.
October 1, 1943 - April 19, 2020
To all of our fishing friends I am reporting the sad news of the passing of Captain Stan, Sr. on Sunday, April 19, 2020, in his sleep, after a short illness. His love of the sea began in the early-1950's when he started fishing on the family skiff every weekend in Raritan Bay or the ocean with my grandfather and it never ended. He left the electronics industry in 1974 in order to start his own fishing business, first with the original Elaine B before purchasing the current Elaine B II in 1986. In the past 45 years it was an extremely rare event to see anyone other than himself behind the helm each day of season which was the way he liked it! I began working with him back in the beginning, on days off from school, and have never stopped in those 45 years! He was able to produce great catches of whatever fish species was in season through the years but it was the fluke and blackfish that became his specialties and the fish that most of our clients love to catch most, then and now. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten by your family and friends. Thank you for all of the countless great memories and time we shared together Capt! I WILL CHERISH THEM ALWAYS! CALM WINDS AND FAIR SEAS ON YOUR FINAL VOYAGE DAD!! Jr.
With a sad heart I am announcing that my mom, Louise, passed away from a heart condition on Friday, May 8, 2020. Most of you may not have know her personally but many of you have spoken with her if you called the EB II office number for fishing information or sailing times. LOUISE and STAN SR. were married for 53 years and apart for less than one month before being re-united again for eternity. Thank you both for the countless memories and always being there for your family and friends! YOU WILL BOTH BE MISSED AND NEVER FORGOTTEN!! UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!! Jr.
This year keeps getting worse. Captain Stan you were always like another father to me. You treated me and my dad like family for the last 10 plus years. You always checked in on us and you were always there for us whenever something went wrong. I made some great friends because of you and if it wasn’t for you and your son I would’ve never found a love for fishing. Fishing on the Elaine B 2 will never be the same without you. You were a great man to everyone who knew you and please keep an eye on me and my dad especially during this tough time. Rest In Peace Captain Stan.. ❤ Tommy H.
