Steven H. Stolp




Steven H. Stolp of Rochester, MI, passed away on April 8, 2022 surrounded by his loving family.

Steve was born on December 18, 1940 in Eau Claire, WI to Dr. Herbert and Edith Stolp. He graduated from Eau Claire Memorial High School and attended Macalester College, St. Paul, MN, before transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where he earned degrees in Mathematics and Economics.

Steve married his high school sweetheart, Mary Lou Johnson, with whom he was married for 57 years.

Steve enlisted in the Air Force Officer Candidate Program where he served seven years for his country in posts throughout the United States and Frankfurt, Germany. After honorably serving in the Air Force and earning the rank of Captain, Steve left the service and began a career in banking. This prepared him for his second career as a business manager, where he served in that capacity for Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, MN for 19 years.

Steve’s love of service to others was exemplified in various leadership positions at Lutheran churches in Minnesota and Arkansas, as well as his dedication to Rotary International as a Paul Harris Fellow. He also loved to sing in barbershop groups and church choirs. Steve’s humor will be cherished by all who knew him and continued until his final days.

Steve is survived by his wife Mary Lou, children Chris (Silke) Stolp of Waterford, MI; Jennifer Stolp (Troy Jordan) of Tyler, MN; and Jon (Carrie) Stolp of Tallahassee, FL; and the grandchildren he loved: Steven, Heather, Courtney, Megan, Connor and Abigail; and great grandchildren Joshua, Ross, and Walker. He is also survived by his brother Jim (Phyllis) Stolp of Austin, Tx; and his sister Mary (Jerry) Hanson of Dousman, WI.
