Obituary for Adolf Stammler

Adolf  Stammler
Adolf Wilhelm Stammler
April 13, 1934 – April 15, 2018

Adolf Stammler, respected Boulder community member and owner of Stammler Porsche Audi, passed away Sunday, April 15th, two days past his 84th birthday. Adolf left a loving family and a footprint of memories for many in Boulder as well as in the auto industry. Adolf served as an active board member of the National Auto Dealers Council as well as a member of the Colorado Auto Dealers Association. Adolf was an avid soccer player, skier, cyclist and animal lover.

Adolf was born in 1934 in Munich, Germany to Emil and Elizabeth “Lilly” Stammler. In 1957, Adolf left Germany and arrived in the United States to visit his sister Evelyn who was living in Denver. Colorado reminded him of his home country and he decided to stay finding work at a car dealership in Denver. Mountain States Motors was introducing Volkswagen to Colorado. Shortly thereafter while at work, Adolf met his wife to be Mary Lou Schneider. Mary Lou had come to the VW dealership with her father Fritz Schneider. Fritz was also of German heritage. He and Adolf found much in common conversing in German. Truly love at first sight; Adolf and Mary Lou were married six months later at St. John’s Church in Denver - celebrating 60 years of marriage this year. They were blessed with a daughter Elizabeth “Lilli” Stammler-Almon. Lilli is married to Philip Almon. They have two sons, Evan and Zachary and live in Castle Pines Village, Colorado.

A young immigrant with little to his name and not fully fluent in English, Adolf was a true example of living the American Dream. He worked hard washing cars and worked smart making friends and mastering the English language. He was promoted from the “bottom” into car sales and then become “Sales Manager”. During his 18 years at VW, Adolf established a strong reputation with the automotive manufacturers in Germany and in 1972 he earned an option to open a Porshe-Audi dealership in Colorado. Adolf chose Boulder and opened Stammler Porsche-Audi in 1973. He ran a successful business for over 40 years and retired in 2013.

Adolf is preceded in death by his parents, a brother Emil who died in WWII, an older sister, Hildegard and his precious Giant Schnauzer, Ava. Adolf will be greatly missed by many including his two surviving sisters, Evelyn Van Horn of Tampa, Florida and Christa Bever of Augsburg, Germany.
