Stanley Lawrence Palluck Jr. was born on September 6, 1947 in Anoka, MN; the son of Stanley Lawrence Palluck Sr. and Betty Mattson. He attended school in north Minneapolis and graduated from Anoka High School in 1965. After school, he went into the business of cartage around the Minneapolis and surrounding area. He later went on to do over-the-road trucking earning his 1 million miles and also had the opportunity to drive on the Alaskan Highway. Stan had visited every state in the nation except for Hawaii.
Stan opened and operated an autobody and a car frame repair shop; he really loved to work for himself and actualized many of his dreams.

Stan took an interest in bowling in his late 40’s; he was awarded for his three perfect games, attaining the score of an 806 in a series, and earning a place in the Bowler’s Hall of Fame in St. Louis, MO. After accomplishing his 806 score, Stan received a letter from the United States Olympic Bowling Team asking him to try out for the team.
