Wallace Stock was born June 26, 1911 at 158 Dexter Street in Toledo, Ohio. He moved to Michigan in 1919 with his parents (and 7 brothers and sisters) when they purchased a 40 acre farm at 9347 Crabb Road in Temperance. He continued to live on the farm his entire life. As stated in his father's (Ignatius Stachak) Last Will & Testament, he supported his parents until they died and also paid off his parent's mortgage on the 40 acre farm. His father willed 35 acres of the farm to him when he died. The remaining 5 acres he willed to his daughter (Florence Walentowski).
He married Lola Markos January 29, 1944 at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Erie, Michigan. They continued to farm the property raising a variety of vegetable crops that they sold at the farm stand on Crabb Road and the Toledo and Detroit vegetable markets. They were best known for raising strawberries and raspberries. Wallace also worked as a roofer for the Fred Christen & Sons Company and in 1935 took a job at the City Auto Stamping Company in Toledo as a welder. He retired from City Auto after 34 years of employment. In his retirement years he loved to work in his garden and along with his wife Lola enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. The only thing that slowed him down over the years was when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. His diabetes affected his eyesight to the point that he had to give up driving in 1962. Everyone who knew Wallace knew what a very kind person he was and that he had a strong devotion to his Catholic faith. He died January 10, 1980.
Lola Stock (Markos) was born November 1, 1913 at 1960 Genesee Street in Toledo, Ohio. She continued to live in the Toledo area. From 1920 to 1923 on Bakewell Street; from 1923 to 1928 on Consaul Street; from 1928 to 1936 on Haverfield Court. She moved to Michigan with her parents (and 5 brothers and sisters) when they purchased a 50 acre farm at 9941 Crabb Road in Temperance, Michigan. Lola worked with her parents on the farm until she married Wallace Stock in 1944. As stated above she along with her husband raised a variety of vegetable crops that they sold at their vegetable stand. Lola was known as a hard-working lady and having a very pleasant personality. She died January 2, 1987.
Before Wallace and Lola died they divided up the property on the farm among their six children. Three of the children built homes on the farm homestead and still live there presently (Gene, Sue & Betty). Lola and Wallace also willed the farm house and 5 acres to Sue and Betty who rent the property out.

Local man appears on Spike TV show! Kevin Stock gets to experience three out of 10 things every guy should experience.
By CONNIE MAKLED of the Bedford Now (June 9, 2004)
When Kevin Stock moved to Santa Monica, Calif., he had no idea that he would end up on television. Stock graduated from Bedford High School in 1998 and played on both the football and baseball teams for the Mules. He also played a bit of basketball until sophomore year, when he decided to concentrate his efforts more on the other two sports. To his surprise, however, it would be basketball that would bring him some newly found fame.
About three weeks ago, when Stock and his college friend, Tim Newell, visited a beach bar at Hermosa Beach, headhunters from Spike TV approached the two about auditioning for a TV show called ''Ten Things Every Guy Should Experience." "It was so surreal," Stock said. "I never expected that in less than a year, I would go from living in the small town of Bedford to being on national television and hobnobbing with celebrities."
Both Stock and Newell graduated from Bowling Green State University, where Stock pitched for the baseball team and Newell was the catcher. Now, the duo would once again team up to try to win an ultimate prize -courtside seats at the NBA finals in los Angeles, where the Detroit Pistons are battling the LA. Lakers.
The two were paired up all week facing challengers to win a series of prizes. The first contest was a dribbling contest," Stock said. "I was the last one standing in that competition and won a shopping spree with Carmello Anthony, rookie for the Denver Nuggets."
Having won that, the duo was geared up to see what else they could win. "It was weird, really," Stock said. "The whole experience was unbelievable. At first, it was strange to have all these cameras follow you around everywhere we went, but after a few hours, we got used to it and started being ourselves."
The second competition was the toughest, Stock said. He and Newell had to dress up in mascot uniforms, Stock as the San Diego Chicken and Newell as a Philadelphia Eagle. The costumes weighed about 35 pounds each and the heat was unbearable. They were required to jump on a trampoline and throw a basketball into a hoop. "I've been in sports all my life," Stock said. "But that was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. But we did it and we won." And his prize - an evening with two Los Angeles Clippers cheerleaders and, the opportunity to "hang out" with Kareem Rush, Luke Walton, and Brian Cook of the L.A. Lakers. "We played ping pong and pool and hung out with them for about four hours. It was a lot of fun. And the cameras were rolling the whole time. And we took the ladies ice skating."
As the competition progressed, the last challenge was to play 2-on-2 for two sets of 3 minutes. The champion won an evening with Bill Walton, one of the top 50 basketball players of all time, best known "for playing with the Boston Celtics, the Portland Trailblazers and the L.A. Clippers. Also on the list of prizes were courtside seats to the NBA playoffs. "We spent the whole evening with Bill Walton, had dinner at his estate, received all kinds of signed memorabilia from him. It was the highlight of the entire experience," Stock said.
On Sunday, June 6, Stock and Newell sat courtside to witness the NBA playoffs and their clean sweep of all three events on Spike TV allowed them to walk away with the memory of a lifetime. "I'm a big Pistons fan," Stock said. "And I get to sit courtside in seats that even movie stars couldn't get their hands on."
But that may not be the end of the story. Stock has been asked to audition for more shows on Spike TV, owned by Viacom. "I came out here to sell pharmaceutical supplies," Stock said. "I don't know if I want to be an actor. But we will see what happens."
"Ten Things Every Guy Should Experience" has aired on Spike TV, but likely can be seen in reruns. Click on the links below to watch videos (3 videos on YouTube) of Kevin on Spike TV in 2004.

Sue (Stock) Stevenson – Fourth child of Wallace & Lola Stock.
I graduated from Bedford High School in 1967. I got my first job working for The Bedford Courier in Temperance, very interesting, fun and I learned a lot about the business from my boss. I then went on to work for Dr. Bruce Clark and Dr. William Lusher at the The Bedford Medical Center.
I married Mike Stevenson on March 1, 1969. Mike was in the Marine Corp stationed at Charleston Naval Base, Charleston, S.C., I moved down there with him which was a real adventure for me since I had never been away from my parents. We had fun setting up housekeeping and learning how to be a married couple without the help of our parents, an interesting experience for both of us. The climate difference made it fun for us as we enjoyed spending a lot of time at the beach, something we couldn't’t do back home in the North.
Our first son Michael Kevin, Jr. was born at the Charleston Naval Base hospital in 1969. Mike, Sr. was discharged from the Marine Corp in December 1969. We came back to live in Toledo. Mike got a job at Chevrolet on Alexis Rd
Our second son Craig Alan was born on February 28, 1971, we were very excited to have another son. Shortly after his birth we were informed by our doctor that Craig was born with Hydrocephalus (water on the brain). An attempt was made to place a shunt to drain the fluid from his brain, that procedure failed and the shunt had to be removed. We found out that he was totally blind just before his surgery. Craig developed a convulsive disorder shortly after and had repeated seizures with many hospitalizations until his death on November 11, 1976 at the age of 5 yrs. at The Toledo Hospital.
September 26, 1973, we moved into our new home on Crabb Rd. in Temperance, newly built, a very exciting time for us. This was great for our children to live so close to their Grandpa and Grandma Stock. Our third son Troy Richard was born in1974. We were very relieved to learn that he was totally healthy. I went to LPN training in 1979. I trained and then worked at St. Vincent Ho sp. for a couple of years and then went on to work at several different physicians’ offices since. I continue to work part-time, presently working at GenitoUrinary Surgeons in Toledo.
In 1992 Mike started Stevenson Nursery and Landscaping with my Aunt Helen Markos in the field behind our home. He was preparing for his “30 and out” retirement from General Motors Power train in the year 2000. Mike did very well with the business and retired as planned. Mike died on November 24, 2005 (Thanksgiving Day) from complications of abdominal surgery at age 57 yrs. in St. Anne’s hospital in Toledo.
I continue to live in the home that we had built on Crabb Rd. I now have 5 beautiful grandchildren (Mike, Jr. -Benjamin & Emily. Troy – Nathan, twins Dillon & Tyler) and spend as much time as I possibly can with them, what a joy they are to me.

Stevenson takes CTP Top Graduate honors
Apr 18, 2011 10:36 AM, By Wendy Leavitt, director of editorial development
CINCINNATI. Troy Stevenson, director of logistics for GreenLine Foods, Inc., was honored yesterday at the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) Annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition for graduating at the top of the class of individuals who earned their Certified Transportation Professional (CTP) credentials in 2011.
“The CTP seemed to encompass all my seventeen years in trucking,” he told Fleet Owner. “It really fit well for me.”
Fleet Owner, which sponsors the annual award for the Top Graduate, presented a crystal eagle to Stevenson in recognition of his achievement.
Stevenson joined GreenLine about a year ago. Prior to that, he served as transportation carrier relations leader, North America for Owens Corning. He was also logistics manager, building products North America, at Pilkington.
Forty-nine people were expected on site Sunday to be honored for earning their CTP credentials earlier this year, and most of them made it, too, in spite of flight-delaying weather. Tom Moore of NPTC presented the graduates one-by-one to the meeting attendees. There are about 800 total CTPs now, Moore observed, noting that the test this year was even more rigorous than before due to the switch from multiple-choice to a short-answer format. “It reflects more of what the real world looks like,” he said. “It is a very robust process.”
The CTP program, now 18 years old, was developed by NPTC for private fleet professionals seeking to enhance and polish the skills and expertise they bring to their organizations. According to NPTC president and CEO, Gary Petty, the graduates bring “new, additional talent and resources” to the industry and to NPTC.
