Richard E. Stoeltzing, 95, of Kirkland Village, Bethlehem, PA, died on June 29, 2004 at the Muhlenberg Lehigh Valley Hospital. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was the husband of Hildegarde (Osterberg) Stoeltzing for 41 years. He was predeceased by his fire wife, Alice Barbara (Draper) Stoeltzing and by his stepson Eric L. Osterberg.
Mr. Stoeltzing was born April 22, 1909 in Brooklyn. He retired from the Brooklyn Union Gas Company where he served as an engineer for 41 years. He was a graduate of Pratt Institute and Penn State University.
He loved reading traveling and volunteer service. His motto was that "service is the rent you pay for the space you occupy." He served on the board of the United Presbyterian Home in Syosset and was declared a director emeritus in 1992 after 43 years of service. He was a member of the LI Health and Hospital Board, an Elder and Deacon of three churches and a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem. He served as director of the Central Queens YMCA and was on the NYC YMCA Board of Managers. He was active in the Boy Scouts of America.
The Stoeltzings were both very active in their community, Beacon Hill. She was membership chair from the inception of the Women's Club in 1959. Dick was president of the Beacon Hill Residents Association. In 1992 the Community Chest of PW named them "Citizens of the Year" for both the PW Community Chest and a similar honor was bestowed by the Manhasset AARP in 1993. The intersection where they lived at Stratford and Longview Rds. was designated, by the Town of North Hempstead, as "Stoeltzing Corner" on the permanent sign post.
For almost 40 years #10 Stratford Rd. was "Open House" to one and all of their annual Glogg Party, a traditional Swedish Christmas drink.
In August 1992 Hildegarde was devastated when her son, Eric L. Osterberg, died. He and his wife Rose Marie Osterberg and their daughter Eva and son "Rick" also lived in Port.
Soon after that the couple decided to move and, at the suggestion of his daughter, Barbara Schroeder, they chose to live in Bethlehem, about 10 miles form her home in Nazareth. Kirkland Village, a retirement complex, was a very wise choice.
He is survived by his wife; a son Richard H. Stoeltzing of Sacramento, CA; his daughter Barbara Schroeder; a stepdaughter Greta Troy; five grandchildren; five step-grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and three step-great-grandchildren.
Arrangements were made by the Pearson Funeral Home, Bethlehem. A memorial service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem on July 17 at 2 p.m. Burial will take place at Nassau Knolls Cemetery.
