R. Kurt Stoll, age 67, of Venango, died unexpectedly at Hamot Medical Center on Friday, February 5, 2010. Born on April 23, 1942 in Connecticut, he was the son of the late Robert and Sarah Donaldson Stoll.
After earning a Masters Degree in Sociology, Kurt taught at the college level in Ohio and Pennsylvania for 7 years. Then to pursue his love for horses, he attended horseshoeing school in West Plains, Missouri and apprenticed with several master farriers before starting his own business. He was a self-employed farrier for a total of 27 years, working in Pennsylvania, California, and New York, and then returning to Pennsylvania in 1990 and living in Venango since 1997. Kurt was well known as a farrier and for his special relationship he seemed to have with horses. He also enjoyed collecting and selling antiques and refinishing furniture.
Kurt, most of all, loved to be at home with his wife of 32 years, Judith Buzzatto Stoll, and his 3 dogs, Sullivan, Suki, and Slugger, and his 2 cats, Jackson and Junior.
