"It's hard to sum up one's life in this short statement, but Tim was a good soul. He was always there to help family and friends, even at a personal expense. His heart was as good as his soul, and we know of no enemies. The great loves of his life were his three sons," his family said.
"Family and friends were Tim's priorities. His smile and kindness will be greatly missed by all, and though we are saddened by his passing, he leaves us with only kind thoughts in our own hearts for him. We are all blessed to have been a part of his life."
Mr. Stolz was preceded in death by his mother, Thelma McConnell; father, Louie Stolz; and brother, Harold Stolz.
