Harold W. Stolper, age 80, of Plymouth, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday evening, Sept. 25, 2013, at Aurora Sheboygan Medical Center after a short illness.

He was born Nov. 8, 1932 in Plymouth, Wis., son of the late Arnold and Erna (Wieland) Stolper. He attended Plymouth grade schools and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1951.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1953- 55.

On May 16, 1953, he married Edithe Dietz at Trinity Lutheran Church in Sheboygan. After his military service, the couple settled in Plymouth where they have resided for over 50 years.

He worked at the Sheboygan County Highway Department as a truck driver, paving and blacktop foreman and was the Plymouth Shed supervisor, retiring in 1990.

He was a member of St. John Lutheran Church and served as vice president of the congregation, an elder, assisted the weekly calculations of the offering and belonged to the Thursday morning men’s Bible class. He assisted those members of the congregation who could not attend services by delivering recordings of weekly Sunday Worship Services to local nursing homes and the local TV station.

He enjoyed raising his roses, woodworking, yard work, the outdoors and he loved his birds, always keeping his feeders full. His family knew he could fix anything. He and his wife were a permanent fixture at many Panther sporting events, but especially enjoyed soccer. His wife, Edie, will continue to cheer for their favorite team with Harold by her side in spirit.

He was a kind and gentle man with a booming laughter.

Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Edithe of Plymouth; three children: Debra (Carl) Buchanan of Appleton, Wendy (Tom) Lundt of Shawano and Scott (Tia Knetter- Stolper) Stolper of Plymouth; seven grandchildren: Laura Hetland of California, Stephen Hetland of California, Nathan Lundt (Breanne Straube) of Grand Blank, Mich., Timothy (Samantha) Lundt of Mount Horeb, Abigail Lundt (Jonathon Weisse) of Milwaukee, Christopher (Courtney) Stolper of Fond du Lac and Gregory (Janine) Stolper of Sheboygan; two great-grandchildren, Brayden and Sophia Stolper; and two sisters-in-law, Rosemarie Larsen of Sheboygan and Ruth Dulmes of Sheboygan. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters-in-law, Beatrice (Wallace) Dotz and LaVerne (Arthur) Aschenbach; and two brothers-in-law, John Dulmes and Robert Larsen.

Funeral services were held Sunday evening, Sept. 29, at St. John Lutheran Church in Plymouth. The Rev. Nathan Meador, pastor of the church, officiated. Burial took place in Plymouth Woodlawn Cemetery.

A memorial fund is being established in Harold’s name.
