It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Dad, John Stoltz, loving husband of the late, Dorothy (Candy) Stoltz, which occurred on Friday, January 1, 2021, at Bobby’s Hospice surrounded by his family. Born in Kelowna, B.C. on January 22, 1939, he was the son of the late Frank and Regina (Kahn) Stoltz.
Dad’s first love (besides our Mom) was music and he continued to play music personally and professionally throughout his life.
He is survived by his daughters, Mindy Stoltz, Marlene McLaughlin (Rob) and Melody Edmanson; brother, Billy Stoltz; grandchildren Jeff, Jenna, Sara and Brandi-lee, four great grandchildren; several nieces, nephews and several great friends. In addition to his parents and his wife Candy, John was predeceased by his son, Kerry John Stoltz and his grandson, Ryan McLaughlin.
Our family would like to thank the staff, nurses, doctors and volunteers of Bobby’s Hospice for the care and compassion shown to Dad over the past couple of weeks. Special thanks to Dr Sasha Sealy who was a huge support over the years. Thank you to Dr Langille, Dr Hunt, Extra Mural and the home support team we had to help with Dad’s care while at home. We would also like to personally thank his support worker Mary for her amazing care, compassion and friendship towards Dad.
