On Tuesday, January 5, 2021, Randall Bradford Stover, loving husband and father, passed away at the age of 68.
Randy was born on January 11, 1952 in Erlangen, Germany. His German name was Erwin Josef Vogl. He was adopted at the age of two by Walter and Edith Stover and raised in the United States with his sister, Patricia Hagan.
Randy was a 1970 graduate of Chattanooga High School and served in the Air Force for four years as a Medical Technician before being honorably discharged in 1976. He continued a career in Medical Imaging that would span nearly 40 years. In 1990, he attained a B.S. in Business Management.
Randy had two sons, Joel and Daniel, in his first marriage to Phyllis Hamilton. He was remarried in 1986 to his beloved wife, Melony, who had a daughter, Angela, from her first marriage. They were happily married for 34 years.
He loved God and was continuously seeking a closer relationship with Him. He was a member of New City Fellowship PCA congregation for over 20 years. New City’s dedication to preaching God’s word and discipleship encouraged Randy in his walk with Jesus.
For Randy, his musical interests spoke to him and formed the soundtrack of his life. We can see his evolution from his youthful love of obscure, sixties, garage rock, to his deep contentment from singing in worship with his congregation.
He was known for his seriousness and work ethic but also his frequent and somewhat impish sense of humor.
Randy was survived by his wife, Melony; children, Angela Haygood and Daniel Stover; and grandchildren, Elijah and Haley Haygood along with cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He is preceded by his parents, sister, and son, Joel Stover.
A graveside service will be held Friday, January 15th at 11:00 am at Chattanooga National Cemetery with Military Honors and Randy Nabors Chaplain (COL), US Army Retired officiating.
