Timothy Alan Stultz, 61, of Sheridan, passed away Tuesday morning, Dec. 20, 2016, at Riverview Health in Noblesville. Born Sept. 1, 1955, in Lebanon, he was a son of James Murray and Mary Lois (Sutton) Stultz.
Tim was a 1973 graduate of Sheridan High School and a 1980 graduate of Indiana University.
He loved working with his hands. It didn't matter if it was building something, doing some woodworking or tinkering in the garage, he loved getting his hands dirty. He put that passion to work for 15 years with Turner Construction, and another 10 years with the Carpenters Union Local 60, of which he was a member, before going to work at the Gander Mountain Warehouse as a maintenance tech.
Tim also loved getting in the garage and working on cars, especially classic muscle cars. He was a member of the Mopar club of Indianapolis. Along with the classic cars came his love of classic rock, especially Rush and 38 Special. He was an avid reader, as well as a history buff.
Tim was very devoted to his family; he was a loving husband, father and grandpa. Wherever his family was and whatever they were involved in, Tim was right there in the mix, especially if it involved his grandchildren. An extremely supportive Blackhawk Band Booster, he spent countless hours building props and traveling to band contests to help on the "Pit Crew."
His church family also played a very strong role in his life. He was a member of the Sheridan First Christian Church, where he proudly served as an elder alongside his wife.
Tim is survived by his mother, Mary Lois Stultz; and his loving wife, Sue (Turner) Stultz. She and Tim were married on March 22, 2009. Tim and Sue were definitely two peas in a pod, traveling through life's adventures by each other's side. Also surviving are his two sons, Paul J. Stultz (Melissa) of Sheridan and Nathan A. Stultz of Memphis, Ind.; two daughters, Amanda Colleen Turner and Elizebeth Sidney Turner, both of Noblesville; five grandchildren, Grayson James Stultz, Hadley Rea Stultz, Sabrina Joe Stultz, Mary Jean Stultz and Atlas Dean Western; one sister, Rebecca Griffiths (Bill) of Sheridan; his dogs, Ted and Daisy; and Boots, the cat.
He was preceded in death by his father, Jim Stultz; and his brother, J. Thomas Stultz.
Visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 26, at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 E. 10th St., Sheridan. Services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Eagle Creek Cemetery in Rural Westfield. Pastor Stephen Yarbrough will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be presented to the Sheridan First Christian Church.
Heaven better have plenty of unsweetened iced tea with absolutely NO LEMON.
