Stone Justin Foltz

November 21, 2000 ‒ March 07, 2021

Delaware, Ohio

Stone Justin Foltz, age 20 of Delaware, OH passed away, Sunday, March 7, 2021, after giving the gift of life as an organ and tissue donor.

A sophomore member of the College of Business at Bowling Green State University, Stone was born on November 21, 2000, in Westerville, OH to loving parents Cory and Shari (Williams) Foltz.

A 2019 graduate of Buckeye Valley High School, Stone was actively involved in playing baseball, basketball, and lacrosse.  He was also actively involved in intramural football and basketball at Bowling Green State University.

Stone was also a devoted Ohio State Buckeye Football fan and would follow the team both on and off the field. He loved sharing highlights of great game plays as well as when the player did something special for someone else off the field. Stone cared deeply for his family and would always seek opportunities to spend time with them and loved watching “Buckeye” football with his whole family around him.  Stone also enjoyed the outdoors and if there was a body of water nearby, even better.  His long-term life plans and hopes had him living near the water where he could be on the beach and in the sunshine.

Stone had a passion for finding that person in life that demonstrated how to be a kinder and gentler person.  Stone’s compassion for people and love for his family drove him to be a better version of himself every day.  He was always one of those guys that stood up for others when they didn’t have the strength themselves. Stone found an inner strength to always try to do the right thing.

In addition to his parents, he is also survived by his brother AJ (Alec) and sister Jersee, grandparents: Geraldine and Frank Foltz of Cardington, Ohio, Rosanna and Duane Williams of Fostoria, Ohio, aunts: DJ Williams and Sandy Brown, uncles: Frank Foltz Jr., Rodney Foltz, Rodney Williams, Aaron Williams, and many cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his great grandparents, Franklin and Enola Foltz, Ralph and Elizabeth Ruggles, John and Marcella Williams, Vincent and Delores Tiell, and his best friend, Jake Richardson.

Family and friends may call from 5:30 – 7:30 pm on Friday at the Grace Powell Church, 7600 Liberty Rd N., Powell, Ohio, 43065 and again at the church from 10:00 am – 12:00 Noon on Saturday, where services will follow at 1:30 pm with Pastor Rick Nuzum officiating. Face masks will be required for all attendees. Due to the circumstances, the family also requests that all media be respectful of their privacy during this tender time. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center in Delaware.

Memorial contributions can be made in memory of Stone to www.lifeconnection.org , 3661 Briarfield Blvd, Suite 105, Maumee, Ohio 43537, or to the GoFundMe account gofundme.com/f/stone-foltz-memorial-fund we have established in Stone’s honor.

  • Dear Cory, Shari, AJ, and Jersee,
    First and foremost, I want you to know how much you are loved❤️.We are praying so hard for all of you so that you will find a way to get though this very, very painful and sad time. Stone’s life has touched so many that knew him and many who never met him. He was such a great kid and sweetheart because he was raised in such a loving and thoughtful family! We miss him so much because his life was tragically taken way too soon. We are grateful to have known him and he will be so greatly missed. We love you and we are here for you for anything at anytime. Life without Stone is truly unimaginable! I pray that you will get through this and that you will be able to move forward with inner peace and feel calm. Don’t worry Stone is with his best friend Jake now and he is probably smiling down on all of us. He is probably saying that it will be ok. We love you Foltz! We are here for all of you! Hugs and lots of love, Chris, Nicole, Lucas, Owen, and Carlie Osborne

  • Cory and family,

    Time and distance doesn’t separate us from feeling your loss. We may not have had the pleasure of knowing your son, Stone, but we know enough about the Foltz family, to know Stone was a great kid. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Dear Mrs. Foltz:

    My condolences. I support you from afar in your efforts to shut down these criminal activities at college campuses across America. Stone should be remembered for how he lived not how he died. You are his voice now.

    If this happened in another Country, there would be more outrage than is sparked here in America. If this happened to a family pet, more outrage would be heard. There are no words to express the nonsense, stupidity, and ignorance of those in charge of the Organizations backing the hazings across America.

    Shame on the Institutions, America and our lawmakers for allowing these senseless criminal activities to go unchecked at campuses across America. I support you–go forward and do good.

  • Dear Foltz Family,

    My family and I are devastated to learn of
    your heart-breaking loss. Will pray for you every day. Even though miles separate us, our thoughts and prayers will be with you.

    With much sympathy,
    Dave Clayton, from Pennsylvania

  • Cory and family,

    It is hard to express how saddened we felt when we heard about your son, Stone. There just are no words! You send your child off to college to have a great learning experience and this happens. It should never happen!! You and your family will always be in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

  • Dear Shari, DJ and Family-
    I am so sorry and am thinking and praying for all of you. I worked with you for 20+ years and you have such a strong, kind and loving family. Stone was a remarkable person and I remember meeting him as a child. Wishing you peace and love during this time.

  • Dear Foltz Family,

    I learned of your loss through the news. I am sincerely sorry for your tremendous loss.
    The pain of losing a child is like no other. Stone seemed to have been an incredible young man. His passing is so senseless. All fraternities and colleges must be held accountable and prosecuted to the highest extent of the law.

    I too lost my son Andrew at the age of 23. He was on a ventilator for 4 days and was declared brain dead. I did not want his life to be in vain – his heart, kidneys, liver, corneas and tissue went to many who were on a transplant list for some time. He now lives on in them. I miss him every day and my heart will always be broken.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • To the entire Foltz family:
    Living in Bowling Green myself, this tragic story has been forefront in the media. I have followed the sad odyssey on which you find yourself. I can’t even imagine what you are going through given his senseless death. Having read so much about him, I wish I had had the pleasure of knowing him. Kudos to you for raising such a fine person. I applaud your efforts to finally bring a stop to these dangerous rituals! My hope is that you will find some peace in bringing about change, knowing that your heroic efforts may spare future families this horror. Gods blessings to all of you!
