Ronald Valentine Stolz
Ron was born to Jack and Mary Stolz in Kelowna, B.C on August 29, 1938 and passed away at the age of 82 on December 7th, 2020.
Ron married Doreen Geiron on May 28, 1960 in Acadia Valley and this is where they started their life together farming and were soon blessed with five children.
Ron was a devoted man, with endless love for his family and a passionate hard working farmer. Ron was also a devout catholic having an above all love for the Lord our Savoir belonging to St. Mary's Church in Acadia Valley and also a lifelong member of the Knights of Columbus.
Ron worked at various jobs in his younger years, the Alberta Wheat Pool and the Acadia Valley Hotel but his passion was always to be a farmer.
In 1965 Ron and Doreen bought the Stolz family farm from Ron's dad and still lived there until Ron's passing. Son Michael soon shared in his dads love of the farm and together along with his grandkids or as grandpa would say "hey little fella" or "ya little whipper snapper" they operated Stolz Farms. You could always find Ron out in his shop or watching his cows eat for hours.
Ron was still farming and proudly took his last crop off of the field operating that big red combine this summer at the age of 82
Sundays were Ron's favorite day of the week, for well over 30 years the family gathered at the farm for Ronny's famous breakfast including lots of love and laughter
Ron also loved socializing, and ripping up that dance floor and always had a stimulant waiting for your arrival.
