On September 6, 2023, James Roy Stoll, moved on from this earthly life to his heavenly abode alongside his beloved wife Ann. Born on February 3, 1947, in Noble Co., Indiana, to Leroy & L. Katherine Stoll, James was a man of strong Christian faith and a testament to the scripture, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:16). He was a beacon of light in the lives of many, reflecting the love of God through his compassionate, supportive, and generous spirit.\n\nJames was a witty and kind-hearted soul who worked diligently as a tradesman at Tokheim and later as an air tool repairman with General Motors. He was a brave soldier of the United States Air Force and a proud member of Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Fort Wayne and the American Legion Post 157. \n\nAn ardent fan of the Chicago Bears and a lover of classic cars, James owned a 1955 Chevy and looked forward to frequent trips to Florida where he enjoyed being by the water and watching people travel down the river. He found joy in the simple pleasures of life, such as breakfasts with his sister Sharon, and the company of animals, especially his two dogs, Zach and Cali. But what mattered most to James was his family, especially his beloved wife, Ann, who was his best friend and soulmate.\n\nJames is survived by his sister, Sharon (David) Byerley; nieces, Michelle Grim, Melissa Byerley, Nicole Springer, Sarah (Jordan) Rice, and Tiffany (Josh) Hass; seven grandnieces; five grandnephews; and a sister-in-law, Marlene Feagles. In addition to both his parents, James was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ann; and brother-in-law, Jerry Feagles. \n\nVisitation will be held on Monday, September 11, 2023, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Sheets & Childs Funeral Home, Churubusco Chapel. \n\nFuneral services will be held on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at Sheets & Childs Funeral Home with additional visitation one hour prior. \n\nMilitary Honors and Graveside Services will be held at Merriam Christian Chapel Cemetery, 4066 South Oak Street, Albion, Indiana, 46701 immediately following funeral services.\n\nAs we remember and honor James's life, we invite you to share your memories and upload photos of James to his memorial page.
