Neil F. Conover, age 78, of Bedford, Indiana, passed away at 2:14 p.m. on Friday, October 25, 2019, at his residence with his family by his side.

He was born in Clermont County, Ohio, on June 21, 1941, to Lloyd and Marie (Osborne) Conover. He married Judith A. Harner on May 11, 1969, in Shoals, Indiana.

Neil was a U.S. Army Veteran serving from 1960 to 1966, and he retired from the Lawrence County Soil and Water Conservation Service in 1994, after 31 years of service. Shortly after his retirement he went into business with his son and brother-in-law building magnificent log homes. He was employed at Spring Mill State Park, in Mitchell, Indiana. After log home building, he officially retired to leisure at home, while building furniture, birdhouses, shelves, and putting together any project his family and friends desired. He loved nature, was an avid farmer, and “made lots of sawdust”.

Neil was a gracious father and loving grandfather, brother, and neighbor. He will be terribly missed.

Survivors include his wife Judith A. Conover; four children, Ginger Conover, Todd Conover and wife Sarah, Amber Chapman and husband Paul, and Carina Lear and husband Steve; eight loving siblings; nine grandchildren, Victoria, Ali, Morgan, Emma, Joseph, Owen, Cedar, Jadrien, and Zeke; and two great-grandchildren, Lincoln and Thatcher.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and one son, Martin Klingberg.

Cremation with no service was chosen. The Cresthaven Funeral Home, in Bedford, Indiana, was in charge of the arrangements.
