HUNTLEY — Clint Stovall, 47, of Huntley, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 22, 2011, after a tragic accident at his home.
Clint was born on Oct. 6, 1963, in Billings, to Clarine Stovall. He graduated from Huntley Project High School in 1982, and then shortly after, enlisted in the United States Army.
Clint was raised by his mother Clarine with the help of his Nana and Papa (Cora and George Allen Graham Jr.), who loved and cherished him. With Papa's loving guidance, at the young age of 9, Clint was excavating and running equipment by himself. He was winning backhoe shootouts against grown men. This was the beginning of a lifelong love for construction. Clint used his talent to build a very successful business, C&S Construction Inc.
Along with his passion for construction, Clint was an accomplished pilot, outdoorsman and beloved friend and family man. Clint married Sheila Pitsch in 1989, and they later divorced. They had three sons, Clint Jr., Seth and Zane. He was a wonderful father who loved spending time with his sons, and teaching them his trade. His sons were his pride and joy.
A testament to Clint's life was proven by the many family, friends and employees that were there in the search for him.
Clint was preceded in death by his Papa (George Allen Graham Jr.); stepfather (Hi Whitlock) and niece (Taryn Pitsch).
Clint is survived by his three sons, Clint Jr., Seth and Zane; his loving mother, Clarine Stovall and father Bob Stovall; cherished Nana (Cora Graham); Clint's sisters, Laurie Noonkester (Grant), Christine Jermunson (Christopher), Kelly Stovall, Holly Schadt (Eric); brother Joe Stovall (Priscilla); uncles George Allen Graham III (Sandy) and Steve Graham; aunts Bobbie Ahl, Tunie Kembel (Steve); nephews and nieces Colter, Tucker (Katie), Travis and Mikhael Noonkester, Jordynn Pecora, Nate and Gracie Jermunson, Sofia and Gage Schadt, Bria Stovall; and many cousins who loved him very much. He was also survived by his special love, Katrina Sechler.
Clint's entire family would like to thank Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder and his team, U.S. Water Rescue, Blain family (Billings Flying Service) and all of the numerous volunteers and friends who helped find him, especially his cousin Shane Graham. In a lieu of flowers, please send donations to U.S. Water Rescue and Billings Flying Service.
Services will be held on Tuesday, May 31, at 11 a.m., at Harvest Church Lockwood Campus.
