Until World War II Stuhlfauth kept a prominent Nuremberg inn. Afterwards he worked as a sports teacher and coach. He remained involved with the 1. FC Nuremberg and was widely credited for his achievements and loyalty. In 2008, he was posthumously introduced into Germany's Sports Hall of Fame.

One of his quotes is still prominently cited by the club and its fans:

"It is an honour to play for the town, the club and the citizens of Nuremberg. May all of this be preserved, and may the great FC Nuremberg never founder."
