Livingston County’s longest serving judge has passed away.
Stanley Latreille served 26 years on the Livingston County bench and retired in 2009 chief judge of the 44th Circuit Court. He passed away at home surrounded by family on January 2nd. Latreille was 82. It’s believed he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was in hospice recently. Retired Judge Daniel Burress spent time on the bench working alongside Latreille, who he says was a longtime jurist and it really was a calling for him. He says the passing is a loss to the community and his heart goes out to Latreille’s wife and children.
