Robert Calvin Stahl, 92, a resident of The Dalles, Ore., died Friday, May 3, 2013 at a local hospital.
He was born May 1, 1921, in Turbotville, Pa., the oldest of eight children of Franklin Philip Stahl and Florence Neta (Dreisbach).
He served in the US Navy during World War II. He married Margaret (Peg) Mary Curtin, his Irish Rose, on Aug. 16, 1947, in Naugatuck, Conn., where they made their home and raised four children, three sons and a daughter.
His wife preceded him in death in 2009 and he moved to The Dalles, Ore., that same year to be closer to family.
He held a master’s degree in education and taught math at Naugatuck High School for 35 years until he retired.
He was an active member in his community and many organizations, including the NAVA Ski Club in Naugatuck, and the Elks Club where he was Elk of the Year in 2004. He was a member of the ski patrol until age 75, and an avid golfer well into his 80s.
He and his wife, Peg, were very active with local charities supporting victims of domestic violence.
He is survived by his four children, Bruce, Mark, Brian, and Cynthia (Clukey), five siblings, seven grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
A memorial service is being planned in Naugatuck, Conn., at a later date.
