Elijah Stuart Bintzler
Our little angel, Elijah Stuart Bintzler, was unexpectedly called to the Lord on Tuesday April 24, 2018. Eli, the son of Joshua and Brenda Bintzler, was born on November 23, 2016. Although his time here was short, the joy he brought to this world will never be forgotten. His days were filled with so much love, joy, giggles and great memories; memories with his parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so many friends and family. His laugh, radiant smile and wet kisses will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
Eli’s love for his “doggie” Gunner, cuddling up to read books, and morning snuggles will be what we all remember most. He was a charmer; he could light up a room with his infectious smile and steal your heart by blowing kisses. Eli’s love to nature was evident early on with his very first word being “deer”. Eli loved hiking, camping and going up-north but most of all he loved being surrounded by his family.
Eli was greeted in heaven by his unborn sibling and his family that past before him. Elijah Stuart, is a son of the risen King who is not moved by the world. For his God is with him and goes before him. He does not fear because he is his.
To share Eli’s love for books with other children, in lieu of flowers and donations the family is requesting children’s books. These books will be donated to local organizations in loving memory of Elijah Stuart. We ask they be brought to visitation or sent to:
Bethlehem Lutheran Church
Attn: Eli’s Love
1121 Georgia Avenue
Sheboygan, WI 53081
A Memorial Service was held on Saturday, April 28 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
The Olson Funeral Home & Cremation Service has been entrusted with Elijah’s arrangements.
