Jeffrey Stocker Obituary

          Jeffrey William Stocker, 71, of Gnadenhutten unexpectedly joined his Lord and Savior Saturday morning of May 20, 2023, while at home.

          A lifelong resident of the area, Jeff was born at Twin City Hospital on May 14, 1952, to Phyllis J. (Smyth) and William E. Stocker. He attended Gnadenhutten grade school and high school and graduated with the class of 1970 from Indian Valley South. Jeff attended Kent State University at Kent, and then Jeff went to work at Stocker Sand and Gravel where he was a mine foreman. He eventually branched away from there to start Aggregate and Concrete Testing Services, and most recently invested as part owner of SmartWay Communications.

Jeff is a member Winfield Community Church, The Ohio Concrete Association, and Ohio Aggregates and Industrial Minerals Association.
