Allan "Al" Stocker
This tribute page has been created in memory of Allan "Al" Stocker, Carolyn Fox's brother. With over 1 million people living in the United States with Parkinson's, his story is one of many. The Parkinson's Foundation works to make life better for those living with PD while supporting research toward a cure. As a Lotspeich family, we hope this tribute page and donations will aid in research and efforts to find a cure for Parkinson's in addition to honoring the life of Al.
