We received the very sad news today that a very active customer of ours, Charlie Wolz, passed away on February 8th.
We first met Charlie in person in May of 2012 when he and his wife, Maribeth, came to see our stoves. This meeting was just the beginning of our relationship with Charlie. Charlie went on to purchase a Fireview stove, but due to the age (circa 1840) and size of the home, decided to utilize the 6 month buy back, to exchange the Fireview in for the larger Progress.

Throughout the two short years of knowing Charlie, we had many
conversations about his stoves and wood burning in general, and Charlie
became a big proponent of our company and our work on the Ideal Steel
Stove, and was always at the ready to offer a helpful thought or
suggestion. It's customers like Charlie who have helped to to make the
Woodstock Soapstone story brighter and richer.

After Charlie & Maribeth came up to exchange stoves, we received the following email:
Charlie, it looks like we'll have to put the growlers on hold for a while.
