Stanley Grover Hierholzer
April 27, 1945 – November 14, 2017

Stanley Grover “Fixit” Hierholzer, 72, of Boerne, TX passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends after a brief illness following open-heart surgery on November 14, 2017 in San Antonio, TX. He was born in San Antonio, TX to Stanley Walter and Vera Rowena (Peters) Hierholzer on April 27th, 1945. He went to school at Harlandale High School, and attended San Antonio College. He married Johnnie Ellen Buchanan on December 20th, 1969 in San Antonio. Stanley was a successful entrepreneur involved in the establishment and administration of numerous businesses. This includes the innovative formation of a computerized medical billing company called Comtrol Corporation, which was later purchased by American Physicians Services Group (APS), where he served as President and CEO. Additionally, he served on the Board of Directors of River City Bank and finished his career in the construction industry, retiring from MSCS.
Stanley enlisted in the Texas Air National Guard on May 22nd, 1965 and served for 6 years receiving an honorable discharge and the famous nickname “Tex.”. Growing up he was involved in the Order of DeMolay, Optimist Club, and the Sheriff’s Mounted Posse. After moving to Boerne in 1976, he became a member of the Boerne Bass Masters Fishing Club and the Boerne Turnverein. He also served on the Kendall County Junior Livestock Board of Directors. Stanley became a believer in his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at a young age and stood firm on his Faith the remainder of his life. As a member of First Baptist Church of Boerne, he served on various committees and taught Children’s Sunday school. Other hobbies included fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, calf-roping, raising Short-horn cattle, story-telling, and spending time with friends at the local coffee shop. He served the community as a Little League Baseball Coach for many years.
Stanley will always be remembered for his ability to easily make friends, genuine care for others, an amazing sense of humor, infectious smile, and hearty laugh. He was admired for his willingness to stand up for what was right, and for his uncompromising sense of integrity.
Stanley Hierholzer is preceded in death by his parents and Father-in-law, John Buchanan. He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Johnnie; his son, Kyle (Ryann); two siblings, David Hierholzer (Sandra), and Faris Auiler (Wilk); Mother-in-law, Mary Ellen Buchanan; Aunt, Vivian Stewart, and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
