In addition to eleven nieces and nephews, he is survived by his daughter Emerson Tarr and son Jasper Tarr, both of whom reside in LeRoy; his brothers Brad Tarr (and his wife Amy), Travis Tarr (and his wife Amy), and Brock Tarr (and his wife Amanda), all of whom reside in Newton; and a sister-in-law. When he passed away, his sister Andrea Tarr had already died. She was his only sibling. Stan has a master’s degree in Ruminant Nutrition that he received from the University of Illinois, where he also completed his undergraduate studies.
In spite of the fact that he was working toward his degree at the time, he still found time to serve as the team’s coach for the cattle judging competition. Stan was a big guy at heart. His influence extended widely and was felt by a large number of people. His time spent working with Wyffels Hybrids was something that he looked forward to with great anticipation. He was unequaled in his capacity as a leader for the Region 80 Team, which he cared deeply about and proudly directed as a guide. He was a mentor to them with great pride. Working the property for Wilson Family Farms was a source of great enjoyment for him.
