Dear Stoltzfus family,
I am so sorry to read about Anthony’s passing. Since 2012, I was a customer at his Leola shop, and was so impressed by his mechanical skills. I don’t think many others could have kept my 30 year old machine on the road. When I learned of his illness in the summer, I wanted you to know that I prayed for him every day. I will surely miss seeing such a talented fellow enthusiast.
Diane,may Gods grace be with you and your family.Our prayers are with you and your family, may God bless you.
Sympathies and prayers of comfort for your family.
So sorry for your loss His mother was my cousin, we did our summer vocation together at doddies. I and Liz carried our babies the same time Liz carried Anthony and I carried Eileen. We often call each other to see how we’re doing.
So sorry for your loss. I graduated with him.
I am so sorry for your loss, it was a great cousin and will always be know as my buddy. I love you guys and praying for you all.
So sorry for your loss! Anthony was a great person who I was lucky enough to know!!
