January 30, 1920 - May 9, 2011
On May 9, 2011, Lawrence W. "Bud" Stoeckley, 91 years old, was reunited with Thelma, his beloved wife of nearly 63 years, who passed away May 1, 2011. Bud was born January 30, 1920 to William F. and Mary (Bohn) Stoeckley. He graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1939. Bud proudly served for four years in the U.S. Army during WWII, mainly in Corsica and N. Africa. Bud worked for 38 years at Ohio Bell as an outside plant engineer. He retired in 1983. In his youth Bud was a talented figure skater. Bud enjoyed hiking and cross country skiing with Thelma and was an avid and skilled photographer, but Bud's main passion was wild flower gardening. He often visited construction areas, before they were leveled, looking for rare native species which he would transplant elsewhere to preserve their species. Bud along with Thelma were volunteers for the Metro Parks and members of the Telephone Pioneers. Bud was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and neighbor. He was generous, fun loving and sociable. He will be missed by all who knew him. Bud is survived by his son, Lawrence R. (Pat) Stoeckley; grandson, Steven Stoeckley and many nieces and nephews. The family is deeply grateful to all the staff at The Toledo Hospital, who managed Bud's care, for their unwaveringly compassionate treatment of him. Friends are invited to visit from 9:00a.m. Saturday, until the Mass of the Resurrection at 11:00 a.m., in St. Pius X Church. Interment will follow in Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, it was Bud's wish that those wishing to send an expression of sympathy consider the St. Pius X Building fund or the charity of their choice. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Ansberg-West Funeral Home (419) 472-7633.
