Family owned & family focused since 1952

Mark Joseph Stoll, Sr.

Mark Joseph Stoll, Sr., age 81, passed away on Saturday, January 2, 2021. Mark was born in Manilla, Iowa, on August 19, 1939, to Elizabeth (Ellen) Schulte and Joseph L. Stoll. In 1958, Mark graduated from Seton High School in Chandler, AZ, and went on to start his life’s work in the masonry construction business. Mark married Sylvia Valdez on June 22, 1961, at St. Mary’s in Chandler, AZ. He was a loving and devoted father to his three boys and their spouses, Mark Jr. and his wife Diana, Andrew and his wife Theresa, Paul and his wife Kristine, and his daughter Heidi. He will forever be remembered as a loving and goofy Papa by his grandchildren: Vanessa, Mark III, Jacob, Alexi, Victor, Jonah, Cassie, Abby, Matthew, and great-grandchildren: Rhett and Levi. Mark is also survived by his sweet and loving sister Elsie Ann Stoll.

In 1964, Mark founded the masonry company, Stoll Masonry Inc., that he would later co-own with his brother, Bob. Mark loved his work and the sense of purpose it brought to his life. With a great sense of pride, he was able to turn over his life’s work to his three sons and nephew. Work that they carry on in his honor today.

The viewing will be on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at Bueler’s Mortuary on 14 W Hutlet Drive in Chandler, from 6-8 PM, with the Rosary at 7 PM. Funeral services will be held the following day, Thursday, January 14, 2021, at St. Mary’s Parish- 230 W Galveston Street in Chandler at 11:00 AM.

Mark and Sylvia are members of Seton Catholic Preparatory’s first graduating class of 1958. Their four children and nine grandchildren also attended Seton. The Stoll family is working with Seton’s Advancement Office on a Special Project in honor of the legacy that Mark and Sylvia started so many years ago. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Advancement Office at Seton Catholic Preparatory.

We ask if you are feeling sick to join us virtually for the services. The Rosary- 1/13 @ a7PM- will be streamed live on Alexi Stoll’s Facebook page. The Funeral Mass will be streamed live on 1/14 @ 11AM on YouTube by following this link:

    Mark was a kind and loving person. He always had a smile when you were around him. The love for his wife Silvia and his family was always present. He loved his family and it showed in everything he did. We will miss his sweet smile,

    Mark will be dearly missed. Our friendship truly started with the many camping trips in the 70’s, to road trips, cabin stays, and weekly card games. He was a mentor and true friend, not to forget a dear cousin. Rest in peace Friend.

    Mark you were the best father-in-law a daughter-in-law could ever ask for, you welcomed me into your family 34 years ago with open arms and a BIG heart. There are so many great memories being with you and Sylvia, you tolerated my cooking and you never complained about eating after 6 pm. You never missed any of the kids games, dance recitals or plays. Thank you for loving me like your own, for all the love and support you gave to our kids, and for being the role model to my loving husband, he is just like you, he is a man of God, he cherishes and loves his family. Jacob did a great job on his Instagram post, “Take a ride with Elvis in his 56, have a rum and coke with John Wayne and play catch with the legends of baseball”. And I add this, “ Now it’s your turn to sleep with the angels Papa”, I love you and will miss you greatly, and don’t worry about nana, Heidi, and Nora Jones, we got them. God Bless You, Luv, Kriss

    Carlos and I will miss you at the family gatherings at Kristine and Paul’s home. We always could count on your stories, laughter, memories and together enjoying watching our shared grandkids grow up into fine young adults. Carlos has fond memories of growing up in Chandler and attending Catholic schools with you and Sylvia and your mutual friends. Although I wasn’t part of those days I have enjoyed all of the good times we had at events with our grandsons Jacob and Jonah and sweet granddaughter Abby girl. We both want to thank you for your wonderful son-in-law, Paul, and how you raised him to be such a good hard working man, husband to our daughter and father to our grandkids. We will never forget you and the good times.

    Mark, you were well known by a lot of people in Chandler and they always had good things to say about you. You always made Scott and I laugh at your stories when we spent time with you and your family. You were so good to your family and it showed thru all of them. You will be missed but not forgotten.
