OBITUARY:

Ernest A. Stocker Jr., a longtime resident of Woburn, passed away Sunday, April 22nd at Winchester Hospital after suffering a sudden heart attack at his home. The devoted father of five children, he was seventy-four years of age. Born in Dover, NH, Mr. Stocker was one of two sons born to Ernest A. Sr. and Helen (Brown) Stocker. Raised in Dover, he attended the Dover Public Schools and was a graduate of Dover High School. Following high school, Mr. Stocker took up residence in Roxbury, MA. He secured a position as a brick layer in Boston where he worked for a brief time until his enlistment in the United States Army. He served for three years during the Korea War and was a Bronze Star recipient. After completion of his fulltime service he continued to serve in the United States Army Reserve.

During the late fifties, Mr. Stocker was married and made his home in Woburn. The proud father of five children, he loved the outdoors, was an avid boater and enjoyed camping with his family at Lake Winnipesaukee. Mr. Stocker had always been an extremely hard worker who possessed an adventurous spirit. These qualities enabled him, along with a close friend, to own and operate his own business, Stocker Waterproofing, for a number of years in the south end of Woburn. He continued to work into his later years, never considering retirement. In his leisure, he also loved country music, trips to Foxwoods, cars and was a longtime member of the American Legion.
