Ronald "Ron" Emil Stollger, age 64, passed away at the Hospice of Dayton on August 2nd, 2022. He worked for Miller Brewing Company and was a brick mason for much of his life. He spent his last years retired with family.
Ron was an avid gardener and loved to refinish furniture. Items that others considered trash he considered treasure, as evident by the way he was able to bring out the beauty in things that were once broken. There was almost nothing in a house he could not fix. Well-known amongst the family for being a fantastical story teller, his tales were often so outlandish that it was hard to tell if they were true.
Ron remained physically active throughout his life and was extremely fit until he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the age of 63, which doctors credit as a factor to his long survival. One reason Ron was so strong was due to the long walks he would take with the much beloved family beagle, Tommy, who the family had for fifteen years, and preceded him in death by two. He really missed his buddy for his last 2 years, and especially wished he was beside him during his illness. He is survived by his wife Diane, daughter and son-in-law Kristin and Luke Frazier, and their three fur children he lovingly referred to as his "kit-cats", daughter Jessica Stollger, step children Dana Graff, Heather Keen, and Amee Freeman. He is also survived by his sisters Betty Wadsworth and Rose Sampson, several adored grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. He is also preceded in death by his parents Emil and Reva. 
Private memorial services will be held by the family on Sunday, August 14th. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Pancreatic Cancer
