MISSOULA — Stanley “Stan” Alvar Nyberg, of Missoula passed away at St. Patrick Hospital on Nov. 28, 2016, after many years of illness. He was 62. Stan was born in Seattle on Oct. 7, 1954, to parents Doris and Alvar Nyberg.
Stan had a big heart, and a dry wit.

A voracious reader, he operated his own book shop for a number of years in Hot Springs. He was also an accomplished photographer.
Stan is survived by his daughter, Erin Nyberg, of Missoula, his sister and brother-in-law, Christine and Russell Huffstetter of Seattle, devoted friend, Malcolm Brooks of Missoula and his German Wirehair Pointer, Scruff. He is preceded in death by his parents, Alvar and Doris Nyberg.
