Sierra Vista, Ariz. — It is with very heavy hearts that the family of Nathan James "Nate" Stover announces his passing Wednesday, April 14, 2021, at the age of 40. He is now reunited with the love of his life, Nadia.

Nate was born April 25, 1980, in Rockport and became an "Army brat" soon after. He spent his childhood living in, traveling and visiting various locations in the United States and Europe. At age 15, he moved to Sierra Vista, Ariz., and was a student at Buena High School, a graduate of the class of 1998. Nate worked at a local automotive dealership for most of his adult life.

He was a devoted family man and cherished time spent with them at home, on vacations, at sporting events or other activities. He was also an avid sports fan and enjoyed golf. Nate always saw the best in others, was always ready to lend a helping hand. Everyone appreciated his sense of humor and outlook on life.

Nate will lovingly be remembered by his children, daughter Jordan (Stover) Barry and her husband, Jacob of Rio Rancho, N.M., daughter Aidan and son Devan of Sierra Vista, Ariz.; his parents, Beth and James Stover, of Sierra Vista, Ariz.; and his grandparents, Robert and Nancy Stover, of Belfast. Nate was predeceased by his wife of 19 years, Nadia (Rocha) Stover. He will be missed by his many other family members and friends.

A celebration of Nate’s life will be held May 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Windemere Hotel and Conference Center, 2047 S. Highway 92, Sierra Vista, Ariz.
