William Fredrick Stultz

December 27, 1923 to January 2, 2022

A famous writer once said “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”

If that’s true then William “Bill” Stultz made a great life.  A wonderful son, husband, father, grandfather and friend, he welcomed everyone with a smile and open arms.

William Fredrick Stultz was born on December 27, 1923 in Mount Sterling, Ohio to John Logan Stultz and Helen Amelia (Sonner) Stultz.  He grew up on Dakota Ave., in Columbus, Ohio, graduating from Central High School in 1941.

Bill got a job in the mail room at State Auto Mutual Insurance Company shortly before graduating high school and was employed there over 46 years.  He retired as secretary of agency accounting .  He left for two years, having joined the Army and served as a map maker in China, Burma and India from 1943-1946.

He met and fell in love with Betty Jane Eddy after returning to State Auto in 1946.  They were married June 21, 1947 at Zion Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio.  They enjoyed 68 beloved years together raising a family in Whitehall, Ohio.

Bill is preceded in death by his loving parents, his devoted wife, Betty Jane Eddy, his daughter, Gloria Jean Stultz and a daughter in law, Christine Ellen (Wall) Stultz.

He is survived by his children, Donald William Stultz of Columbus, Janet Susan (Jeff) Eing of Howard, and Douglas Fredrick (Sandy) Stultz of Cincinnati; grandchildren, Leslie Ann (Aaron) Bass, Jon Wesley Taylor, John (Shelly) Eing, Ashlie Elisabeth (Craig) Kempton, Logan William (Misty) Stultz, Benjamin Douglas (Annie) Stultz, Katherine Grace (Max) Kern and Wiliam Sonner Stultz; great-grandchildren, Alex, Michael, Tori, Ethan, Emerson, Lola, Lainey, Macy, Wyatt, Sullivan, Wyatt, Maddox and Kamden; along with close friends, Mary lou Jones and Joyce McKinney.

William was a faithful member of Zion Lutheran Church for over 75 years, also attending St. Armands Key Lutheran Church in Sarasota, Florida and Trinity Lutheran Church in Maysville, Kentucky. 

He and his wife spent many years along the water at Indian Lake and also in Longboat Key, Florida.  He was a voracious reader, puzzle solver, painter, duck carver and traveler.  His biggest love was his family and felt blessed to spend time with all of them.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 – 11:00 AM at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, 766 South High Street, Columbus, OH 43206 with Pastor Wes Hromowyk officiating.  A reception celebration of his life and remembrances will follow immediately at the church.
