Brian James Stoll
December 17, 1974 – January 28, 2020
On January 28, this world lost a genuinely good man. Brian James Stoll (45) passed from this life to be with his savior and Lord, Jesus, and to be reunited with his father, Gary. He is survived by his wife, Angela; sons, Henry (8) and Hayden (5); mother Leona; brother Robert (Linda) and numerous extended family members. Brian was born on December 17, 1974 and grew up in the Oak Grove area. He graduated from Rex Putnum High School in 1993 and attended Portland State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in business. In 2015 he returned to school and graduated from George Fox University with a Master’s of Divinity. In 2010, he married the love of his life, Angela, proposing to her on a trip to watch the Ducks play in the Rose Bowl. Brian was an investor for most of his life…the commodity-people. From the youth and children that he worked with as a pastor, to coworkers, friends, neighbors, or family, Brian’s love of people was apparent. His sense of humor and quick wit drew people to him. His encouragement and genuine care kept them coming back for more. He was an avid sports fan who liked old cars and sarcastic memes. He was a hands-on father who adored his two sweet boys and wife. A service to honor Brian’s life will be held at Hope City Church, Milwaukie on February 8 at 2:00 pm.

When I think of when I met Brian Stoll, I think of a wonderful, young man taking part in the church services at Oregon City First Baptist Church. God had a wonderful plan for him to serve others, children and adults, sharing God’s word, praying and leading them to Christ. I giggle when I think of Brian using the puppet, Tucker, to tell Bible stories during the church service. I’m sure Tucker is sad with the passing of Brian, too. There were many years I didn’t see him, but when I did, it was just as if we had never been apart. Last June 30th was a very special time for my family when Brian officiated my sister’s wedding. He was so genuine and knew exactly what to say during the ceremony. I will never forget the love and care he and Angela showed us to make it a perfect day. My heart has a very special place for Brian and I will never forget his sense of humor and love of God, which showed through his acts of love to others. Thank you, Brian, for being a Christian example to so many people. I pray that God will wrap Angela, Henry, Hayden and other family with His comforting and loving arms.

I met Brian many years ago when he was the youth pastor at First Baptist in Oregon City. I was visiting on a Sunday and just remember how personable and friendly he was. Now many years later my husband and I were so blessed because Brian officiated our wedding last summer .(6/30/19).
Again, his compassion, friendliness and humor made the ceremony unforgettable! Brian was amazing. The world has lost a wonderful man and I am at a loss for words.
Heavenly Father please take care of Brian’s family and give Brian a huge hug💙
