My Brother

My heart is heavy with grief as I type this morning.
My brother Tristan, only 32 years old, passed away
so very quickly early Wed morning, Oct 7

Although we thought his health was fine,
he died of a sudden heart attack.


We loved him so much, he was the life of the party.
He will be so very missed.

A quote a friend sent me:
Now at last he is beginning chapter one of the great story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever; in which every chapter is better then the one before.

Lift our family in prayer  as we grieve this loss.

Mark Tristan Stoll, 32, passed away unexpectedly early in the morning Wednesday, October 7, 2015

He was born Nov. 3, 1982, to Owen and Marie (Yoder) Stoll. On Oct. 18, 2003, he married Lisa Wagler and she survives. Together they had three children, Katelyn Elizabeth, 8, Aleigha Claire, 4, and Grant Tristan, 18 months.

He is also survived by his parents, Owen and Marie Stoll of Odon; one brother, Tyson (Amanda Stoll) of Loogootee; two sisters, Shannon (Eric) Hostetler of Utica, Ohio, and Sarita (Tim) Graber of Odon.

He was a member of the Mt. Olive Mennonite Church. Tristan was loved by all who knew him. Friendly and ready to visit, he always had a smile. He was a wonderful husband and father and loved spending time with his family. He was employed by Hutson Inc. as a John Deere mechanic and was known by many farmers in the area.

Calling hours will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Mt. Olive Mennonite Church in Montgomery.

The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at the church. Burial will be in the church cemetery.

  1. Maurice and I send our sympathies to you and your family. Jesus (and I) are weeping with you.

    This carries even more weight for our family as our 13-yr-old was diagnosed with SVT as a baby. After a year on meds, he hasn’t had an episode. It was always a consolation to think of your brother while his returned as an adolescent it was manageable.

    But things can go wrong and this time they did for Tristan…and they might for Chad as well. But no matter what, we cling to the fact; God is Good, All the time!


  2. I understand what you’re going thru… My 33 year old brother Jonathan passed away suddenly 3 years ago in June. They had 3 daughters and his son was born @ 8 months after his death. May God keep you and comfort you…


  3. I have been praying for your family ever since I saw the sad news on the mom board. Crying out to Jesus to comfort all of you who loved Tristan.


Would love to hear what you are thinking...
