STOLLE, Rolf - WFP Obit Photo.jpg

After a long, yet courageous battle with cancer, Rolf Stolle passed away at home with his family by his side, Thursday June 11, 2020.

Rolf was born in Berlin, Germany November 21, 1934, to Heinz and Betty Stolle. He came to Canada in June 1953. This is where he met the love of his life Elizabeth in the summer of 1955 and they married on May 5th, 1956. Rolf and Elizabeth enjoyed travelling, playing golf, playing cards with friends, dancing and listening to music together. Their travels took them to Hawaii, BC, Phoenix, parts of Europe and numerous trips to 


Their love created four amazing children, Michael Stolle, Peter Stolle, Angie Walker and Susan Gagnon. Rolf is predeceased by their oldest son Michael in 1988. 


Rolf will be deeply missed by his wife Elizabeth, his children Peter, Angie (Harry), and Susan (Gerald); nine grandchildren, Petra (Mike), Monika, Kristen, Jackie (Dave), Rachelle (Iian), Peter (Monique), Chantelle (Mike), Simone (Tyrone), Michelle (Travis); nineteen great-grandchildren; brothers Heinz and Mike; sister Gisela; nieces, nephews, family in Germany, and friends.

Rolf worked hard his whole life as a painter/decorator, he was self-employed, and worked 12 years for Correctional Service of Canada where he retired in 2000. He was a life member of the Fort Rouge Curling club for 35 years. Above all else Rolf was extremely proud of his family and gave everything that he could to all. He loved us all greatly and made sure to never miss a birthday or any celebration that brought his family together. Rolf loved watching his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren playing sports. He coached soccer for years and attended every soccer, baseball, or hockey game he could right up until this year. Rolf also enjoyed being with the horses at Peter's, and being out on the water fishing, taking it all in and really enjoying life. Rolf was fearless, kind and accepted everyone just as they were. His advice for his family right until the end was to be kind, take care of one another and don't ever fight.


In keeping with Rolf's wishes, cremation has taken place. A private graveside service will be held. Rolf's family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by watching the photo-biography above.
