Jeffrey James Conover Obituary
POQUOSON - Jeff Conover, 52, passed away peacefully at home on January 19, 2016. He enjoyed his career at NASA Langley Research Center and the many friends he made at work, playing in the softball league, and his involvement in the Poquoson community. He coached children of all ages in football, basketball, soccer, and baseball. He was especially appreciative of all the children, parents and the members of the Poquoson Little League Board as he enjoyed his service with them. Jeff loved the outdoors. He enjoyed fishing the Chesapeake Bay and loved salmon fishing in Alaska. He enjoyed deer hunting in West Virginia and elk hunting in Colorado. He was an avid boater and water skier and enjoyed "pulling" anyone who dared go behind his boat! All of those memorable experiences were shared with hundreds of dear friends and family whom he will miss. Jeff is survived by his wife, Stephanie Conover; son, Christian Conover; parents, Jim and Carol Conover; uncle, Lee Heil and Kelli Schaeffer; sister, Dana Pomerantz and husband Dave; and, nephew and niece Zach and Maeghan Pomerantz. Jeff's loving grandparents, Harold and Florence Conover and Clara Heil, predeceased him. A family visitation will be held 11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon, Saturday, January 30, 2016, at Tabernacle United Methodist Church, Poquoson, immediately followed by a memorial service led by Pastor Brent Staul. Jeff endured a long battle with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), a neurodegenerative disease that still requires much-needed research. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the MSA Coalition at multiplesystematrophy.org or 1-877-737-5999. Special thanks to the round-the-clock caregivers who have been angels: Linda, Lillian, Cathy, and Kara. Special thanks to Joyce and Cookie from Sentara Home Hospice. You are all wonderful and your daily blessings were a godsend and will continue to be for those whom you serve. Claytor Rollins Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
