Lauren Stottlemyer Obituary

Lauren Donald Stottlemyer, 61, of Carroll Valley, PA, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 14, 2024, at his home.

Born September 11, 1962, in Waynesboro, PA, he was the son of the late Leister B. Stottlemyer, Jr. and Mary Ann (Draper) Stottlemyer, of Smithsburg, MD.

Lauren was a graduate of Smithsburg High School, class of 1980.

He worked at Frick/Johnson Controls for over 43 years where he was known as “Jr.” to his coworkers and friends.

He was a member of the Blue Ridge Sportsmen’s Association, lifetime member of the National Rifle Association of America, and a supporter of the Veteran’s and Disabled Veterans Causes.

Lauren was an avid hunter, fisherman, and a lover of all things outdoors. He was a fan of the Baltimore Orioles and the Texas Longhorns. Lauren enjoyed playing and watching golf, attending Nascar races, and loved a good tailgate party with family and friends. He loved listening to a wide variety of music, especially when relaxing with his sons while sitting around their homemade firepit.

Lauren was a well-known “jokester,” he brought laughter to many!

Lauren dreamed of owning his own log cabin in Tennessee, where he could sit with his black coffee, or a beer, while listening to the sounds of nature.

Lauren will be remembered and missed by his three sons, Jesse Stottlemyer (Kelsey) of Frederick, MD; Noah Stottlemyer, and Isaac Stottlemyer, both of Smithsburg MD; his siblings, Wayne Stottlemyer (Dani) of Gettysburg, PA; Norma Jean Aravanis (Tony) of Hagerstown, MD; Donna Kay Fogle (Jim) of Walkersville, MD; and Beverly Stottlemyer (John) of Hagerstown, MD; former wife and friend, Kristie Everett, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

His kind heart and generous nature touched many lives.
