Nathaniel Allan Stolle

NATHANIEL ALLAN STOLLE age 4, beloved son of Keith Allan and Charlene Lynn (nee Snow) Stolle; devoted grandson of Kenneth and Shirley Stolle, Linda Snow; loving nephew of Connie (nee Snow) and Eric Mahnich, Sandra Stolle, and Danielle Snow; loving cousin of Kenny and Kevin DeRose; great nephew and friend to many. Survived by his kitty kats, Sweetie and Socksie.

Nathaniel was born on July 15, 2014 in Middlefield and passed away at home peacefully surrounded by his loving family on December 11, 2018. He was a guest of and supported by the Super Heroes to Kids in Ohio, A Special Wish Cleveland, Team Will, NC4K of Columbus (no kid fights cancer alone), the Littlest Heroes, Santa’s Hide Away Hallow and Radiate Gold Foundation. Nathaniel loved the Super Heroes, especially Spiderman, Flash, Deadpool, Batman and Hulk. He also loved Mickey Mouse and Toy Story. He had a passion for all sports. His favorite team was the Golden State Warriors and his dream came true when he was able to meet Stephen Curry.  Nathaniel still had a special place in his heart for the Cavaliers. He was a huge Tribe and Buckeyes fan as well. Nathaniel will be remembered most for his great smile, his infectious laugh and his amazing strength of character and selflessness. He was a true gift from God and showed us all how to live. He loved to sing and had the sweetest voice. Nathaniel was a witness to us all on how he handled his illness. He helped many people who may have questioned their path in life by bringing them to our Lord and seeing life in a brighter way. He will forever be missed.
