Michael B Stoddard

 

Michael Bateston Stoddard, 49, of Landing, N.J., passed away on Sunday, February 26, 2017 at Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, N.J., of injuries suffered in a car accident. He was born September 10, 1967 in Toms River, New Jersey.

He is survived by his father Bates Stoddard, and his mother Madeline Zulauf. Additional surviving family includes his stepfather Sander Zulauf, stepmother Mary Beal, sisters Mary Beth Stoddard and Lauren Donovan, brothers Michael Arendasky, Jim Arendasky, and Scott Zulauf, nieces Carley and Ella, nephews Drew and Hank, cousins Marion Noyes and Nancy Noyes, and his girlfriend Christine Sadowski and their baby, due to be born in August.

Michael seemed to be indestructible while charging along his adventurous paths of life. As a child, he loved trains, Legos, and then transitioned to BMX, fishing and he developed his undeniable affinity for motorcycles. He possessed effervescence, always smiling and laughing, and was the type of guy who would give you the shirt off his back. Most of all, he loved to love.
