Daniel Robert Boltz, age 82 of Vernon, passed away peacefully on February 27th, 2020 at the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice Home in Fredon with family by his side.
Dan was born October 23, 1937 in Quincy, IL. Preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Mary “Dolly” Magdalene (Settle) Boltz; sister, Sandy Boltz Moser; brothers Porter and Timothy Boltz, Dan is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Frances S. Boltz; their sons Matthew Carl Boltz and his fiancé Patti Engber of Richmond, VA, Adam Clay Boltz of Vernon, and Jason Daniel Boltz and his wife Isabel of Boston, MA; granddaughters Erika Boltz of Jacksonville, FL, Carley Boltz-Howell and husband, Chris of Ruther Glen, VA, and Mary Clare Boltz of Beaverdam, VA; Ralph Settle of Quincy, IL; and other cousins, nieces, and nephews, as well as many loving friends.
Dan graduated from Notre Dame High School in Quincy in 1955. In 1960, he graduated from Florida State University with a Masters in psychology on a full basketball scholarship. He was a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and sang with the Hi Phi’s during his college years. Dan began his professional career with IBM, but eventually created his own fabric sales business, Bolts From Boltz, and he was the founder of the Northeast Fabric Sales Association. A frequent guest speaker in five states, he told the story of cotton from field to the hand or garment. Author of the children’s book “Dan’s Pants: The Adventures of Dan the Fabric Man,” singing was a lifelong passion. There were Dan Boltz Sing Alongs, sponsored by the Vernon Twp. Historical Society. Dan could light up any room with his wit, charm, and song. He will be missed.
A celebration of Dan’s life will be announced at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Ferguson—Vernon Funeral Home, 241 Route 94, Vernon, NJ 07462.

To Adam and the Boltz family,
Sending condolences to you on the passing of your dad from this life. I remember one year he came to one of our flu clinics and I asked, "Who is that man in the crazy pants?" Someone told me it was your dad and then I learned the rest of the story! Virtual hugs to you all.

Dear Fran and family, I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Dan, truly a man admired by all for his many talents, humourous tales, and contagious smile and laughter!! He will be missed by not only his family, but the entire Vernon community. His smile and laughter will always have a special place in my heart. May you and you're family's memories of Dan always bring peace and smiles to you! I am in Florida for another couple of weeks, but my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Boltz' passing. I have many good memories of times spent at the Boltz' home and in other places in Vernon. A great memory of Mr. Boltz was when I had the chance to travel with him, Mrs. Boltz and Matt to visit WVU in Morgantown, WV. As we passed the old field house on campus he told us a story about how he played against the great Jerry West. He was very supportive of his beautiful wife and three sons. He had a great, gentle spirit. I haven't seen him in many years, but am still saddened by this news. To Mrs. Boltz, Matt, Adam, and Jason, I send you my thoughts and prayers and thanks for many good memories.
