It wasn’t unusual to see Tony in the middle of a game or instigating it. Adventure always seemed to find him, and he embraced it with a smile. In addition to building a beautiful family, Tony was creative, resourceful and giving. If you ever needed something, he likely had two and wasn’t afraid to share. Tony was a rock for his family and people he loved. He stood by people in their hard times and showed up to celebrate their achievements. He was a true gift to all whose lives he touched. It is with both heavy and full hearts that the Stolz family invites you to celebrate his wonderful life.
