Penny Stoa Obituary, Death –Since childhood, the looming thought of my father, Perry Stoa, passing away has always lingered in the recesses of my mind. Nearly two weeks ago, he left us suddenly, possibly in his sleep, possibly due to a heart attack. The loss of him has proven to be as heart-wrenching as I had feared, with waves of grief hitting harder than I could have imagined. At times, I’m left in a state of disbelief, struggling to accept that he’s truly gone.
My daughters and I were incredibly fortunate to have him as their Papa. While he loved me and my sister dearly, his affection for my girls was unparalleled. The bond they shared was nothing short of extraordinary, and witnessing their connection was one of the most beautiful things I’ll forever miss about my daddy.
These past ten days have been marked by intense pain, and I find solace in hearing cherished memories of him that bring warmth to my heart. Some people have kindly shared their recollections, and it has meant the world to me. If you have memories or thoughts you’d like to share, please feel free to do so in the comments below. Share as many as you’d like.
For those interested, we tentatively plan to hold his memorial service on Saturday, September 23rd, at 4:00 PM at Shepherd of the Sierra in Carson City, Nevada. Your support and kind words are deeply appreciated during this difficult time.
