Dick Stover Shoots Self through Head; No Motive Discovered - Leaves Wife and Two Children
Ontario Argus -- After carrying in the evening's wood and visiting with his wife for a time and apparently in the best of spirits, Dick Stover went into his bedroom of his home just east of the city limits Wednesday evening about 9:00 a. m. and shot himself through the head. He died instantly. Dr. R. O. Payne, coroner, was called and made an investigation and determined no inquest was necessary. The body was removed to Peterson's parlors. Funeral arrangements have not been made, pending the arrival of his mother, Mrs. C. U. Stover of Portland.

Mr. Stover was born in Iowa 35 years ago and came with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. U. Stover, to Ontario when he was a little boy. He attended the local grade and high school and first engaged in business in 1920 when he purchased the Globe Service station, which he later sold to J. B. Atherton, and went to Portland to live. He returned to Ontario several years ago and has conducted a care cleaning and service station in the Peterson block since then. In 1923 he married Miss Irene Faubion, who with their daughter, Jacqueline and a son, Jimmie survive him. He is also survived by his parents and two brothers, Ben and Guy Stover.
