Ross Stoltz Death, Obituary – In addition to being a Nailers Partner, a community leader, and a fan, Ross Stoltz spent a significant portion of his life as the owner of a McDonald’s franchise in the region. Recently, it was brought to our attention that he had passed away, and the news of his loss has left us inconsolable and unable to find solace in anything.
When he relocated to the valley in 1995, he was a devoted supporter of the game of hockey and an avid follower of the National Hockey League (NHL). As he took over the McDonald’s franchise that was expanding in every direction, he initially focused his attention on the Wheeling Nailers in order to provide financial assistance to the organization as well as the community.
He did this so that the Wheeling Nailers could continue to play an important role in the community. He did this so that the Wheeling Nailers might keep being a constructive force in the community even after he was gone. Since our inception nearly three decades ago, Ross Stoltz and McDonald’s have been an unwavering supporter, believer, and partner of ours in all that we have attempted to accomplish.
During this difficult time, we want his coworkers, friends, and family to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. We want them to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Ross exemplified what it means to be a responsible citizen. It didn’t matter whether we saw him at the Nailers or TJs; he always greeted us with a warm smile and a cordial hello everytime we did.
This was the case regardless of where we encountered him. When we originally started the event, he was a big supporter of it, and he and his wife offered their delicious coffee to attendees at the event each year. He was a major proponent of the Taste of Elm Grove event from the very beginning, when we were still in the planning stages.
