David Evan Stoner

David Stoner, 64, of Rochester, MN died August 25, 2022 at home surrounded by family.

He was born in Fort Dodge, IA on December 15, 1957 to Lillian and Raymond Stoner. Raised in Rochester, he graduated from John Marshall High School in ’76, then graduated with a BS in Anthropology from UM Minneapolis. He later got his master’s degree in project management from St. Mary’s University in 2011.

As a young man, he traveled the world: Nepal, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, India, and Hong Kong. During these travels, he met the love of his life, Marites (Mary) who he married in 2005 after 5 years of courtship. Their son, Will, was born in Taiwan. After many years teaching in Taiwan and Japan, he returned to MN and in his final years, he was a successful insurance broker with Golden Care.

He loved to paint, loved music, and was skilled playing organ and classical guitar. What he most loved was spending time with his family, because he was a sweet, kind, gentle, brilliant man who fully enjoyed his family. They did everything together.

He is survived by his wife Marites; son, Will; mother, Lillian; brothers, Loren (Becky), Gary (Lucia) Paul (Jo), and Andrew. He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

I am David's art instructor at Driftless Art Academy. I was deeply saddened to learn of David's passing. He was always such a kind and gentle soul and we enjoyed having him in the studio. My condolences to his family during this difficult time.

My deepest condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of working with David for the past five years as his manager. David was very good at his job. His compassion to help others was always present and his clients loved him. We could always count on David to help with whatever was asked of him. A truly wonderful person who is greatly missed. I pray he can rest in peace knowing he made a positive difference in the lives of those he has helped and touched the hearts of many.
