Michael Bateston Stoddard, 49, of Landing, N.J., passed away on Sunday, February 26, 2017 at Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, N.J., of injuries suffered in a car accident. He was born September 10, 1967 in Toms River, New Jersey.
He is survived by his father Bates Stoddard, and his mother Madeline Zulauf. Additional surviving family includes his stepfather Sander Zulauf, stepmother Mary Beal, sisters Mary Beth Stoddard and Lauren Donovan, brothers Michael Arendasky, Jim Arendasky, and Scott Zulauf, nieces Carley and Ella, nephews Drew and Hank, cousins Marion Noyes and Nancy Noyes, and his girlfriend Christine Sadowski and their baby, due to be born in August.
Michael seemed to be indestructible while charging along his adventurous paths of life. As a child, he loved trains, Legos, and then transitioned to BMX, fishing and he developed his undeniable affinity for motorcycles. He possessed effervescence, always smiling and laughing, and was the type of guy who would give you the shirt off his back. Most of all, he loved to love.

Marie Eames Passes
Marie Eames went to be with her beloved husband Al “Mr. Six Days” Eames this past weekend. She was an integral part of the American ISDT team management for many years and an ardent supporter of Al’s Berkshire Trial and 1973 ISDT in Dalton, MA. We were fortunate to be able to honor her at the 2013 ISDT Reunion Ride banquet in Massachusetts. Her health and mental status have been diminishing for several years, however she was always aware of her ISDT family.
At the request of Marie and her family, memorial donations are requested to be directed to Jim Hoellerich to support and continue his excellent museum of ISDT and New England enduro history. Jim and the Eames were lifelong friends.
