Benefit fund established for deceased Oxford Farmers Market owner

11/20/2013 03:19PM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print



When Amos Stoltzfus, the owner of the Oxford Farmers Market, died at the age of 46 on Oct. 19, he was survived by a wife and six children—four of them still living at their home in Christiana, Pa. His brother-in-law, Jerry XXXX of J&S Masonry, has established a benefit fund in Stoltzfus' memory.

There is some uncertainty surrounding the circumstances of Stolzfus' death on Oct. 19. He was operating a forklift at the time and for reasons that haven't been determined—perhaps a heart attack or some other medical condition—he fell off the machinery and was run over.

The benefit fund was set up at the Fulton Bank in Oxford to help out the family with the medical expenses and funeral costs.

Terri XXXX, a frequent shopper at the Oxford Farmers Market, said that she was sad to hear about the passing of the owner of the Oxford Farmers Market.

Contributions can be made to the Amos Stoltzfus Benefit Fund at XXXXX.

“It's a sad situation for any family,” she said.

She pledged to continue shopping at the Oxford Farmers Market as Stolzfus' wife attempts to keep it going.
