Robert, or Kevin as he liked to be called, was born to Laurence and LaVonne Stover on October 28, 1959, in Huntsville, AL. Kevin spent his childhood living a number of places: Alabama, California, Australia, Florida and St. Louis before his family eventually settled in Marshalltown, where Kevin graduated from Marshalltown High School in 1978. Kevin graduated from Buena Vista University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in May of 1990. In October 2004, Kevin was united in marriage to Dorothy Overton of Des Moines. They remained married until her passing in February of 2018. At the time of Kevin's passing, he was recently retired from the Telegen Corporation where he worked in IT.

Kevin was a devoted husband, step-father, uncle, brother and son. He was adored by his nephews and nieces who called him The Good Uncle. Kevin had a personal and abiding faith that carried him, with optimism, through the tough times. He was a strong-willed survivor. 34 years ago, he fought off a condition that nearly took his life. Kevin never lost his fighting spirit nor his tenacity, which were evident in everything that he did. He was active in the amateur radio community with several ham radio clubs in central Iowa under the callsign AC0H. Kevin volunteered his time in public service with these organizations. While at times, he could be fiercely independent and opinionated, Kevin was always devoted, loyal and kind. Kevin expressed his love for others by his actions and his presence. He had a passion for his animals, and he loved everyone he held dear. Kevin would be glad to have discussions with anyone who would listen about topics ranging from politics and events of the day to his favorite sports teams. He was a life-long fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Green Bay Packers, and the St. Louis Cardinals. The fact that his Cardinals won their division on the day of his passing was his way of having the last word over the Cubs fans that he loved.

Kevin is survived by his parents, Laurence and LaVonne Stover, formerly of Marshalltown, now residing in Plymouth, MI; stepson Dustin Patrick of Des Moines; his sister, Denise (Stover) and Michael Bryan of Plymouth, MI; his sister, Michelle (Stover) and John Peterson of Marshalltown; his brother, Eric and Dawn Stover of Waverly, IA; and his sister, Kerri Stover and Cyndy Caroll of Pittsburgh, PA; and Aunt Anita (Deane Adams) Elmore and Uncle Harley Stover of Conrad, IA; Aunt Jeanne Stover of Vienna, VA; nephews and nieces: Maj. Matthew and Alexa Bryan of Huntsville, AL, Laura and Jonathan Silver and Benjamin and Eliana of South Lyon, MI, Daniel and Deanna Bryan and Dexie of South Lyon, MI, Nathan Peterson of Marshalltown, Allison Peterson of Ankeny, IA, Geoffrey and Cari Stover of Liverpool, NY, Emily and Samuel Stover of Waverly. Kevin is also survived by a large extended family and many cousins. Kevin was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy (Overton) Stover, and by his maternal and paternal grandparents.

I am so sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. I greatly enjoyed working with him at Telligen. He was a joy to be around and I greatly appreciated his insights and feedback. I am richer for having known him.

Roberta B on Oct 2, 2019

To the family of Kevin. I am sorry for your loss. Kevin worked on our Contact Center team at Telligen for a little over 7 years and I will miss his sense of humor, including saying "Hump Daaaay" on Wednesdays, and of course his sharing of Snickers.

Kevin - RIP...Praying that you are happy and running around in Heaven.
P.S. Share the winning lotto numbers with me instead of Michael. ;-)

Marlene Mitchell on Oct 2, 2019

I am so very saddened to hear of Kevin's passing. I worked with Kevin at Telligen for seven years. I am sure he would be teasing right now during the post-season baseball playoffs saying that his beloved Cardinals are going to beat my beloved Dodgers!

Rest in Peace Kevin - you deserve to be healthy and pain-free in Heaven!!

Jim Farley on Oct 2, 2019

CandleSad to hear about the passing of Kevin Stover. Many words describe Kevin but the one that sticks out the most for me is one of a kind. I had the pleasure of working with Kevin when I worked at Telligen.

Kevin was known on our team as the Snickers Fairy as he would leave a bowl of snickers on our table and yell the Snickers Fairy was here. Pretty sure Kevin is sitting with his wife Dorothy enjoying a snickers and a glass of MT Dew.

Kevin we always joked about winning the lotto so if you could drop me some numbers so I could win that would be fantastic. Don't worry I will make sure to split it with A-A-Ron.

Jakob W on Oct 2, 2019
