Jon David Conover passed away on Monday, March 30, 2020, from complications of a stroke. He was 66- years-old.

Jon was born on March 25, 1954, in Salt Lake City, UT to C. Glenn Conover and Susanna Catherine Wittmann. He attended East High School and served an LDS mission to Germany. He attended the University of Utah where he attained a bachelor’s degree, and continued his education at Brigham Young University to obtain an MBA in marketing and finance. He used his degree and his love of connecting with others to fuel his work as a consultant and sales director at various companies throughout his career.

On February 19, 1992, Jon married Charla Kay Weber in the Salt Lake temple. Charla had three children from a previous marriage—Robert, Joshua, and Benjamin—who Jon took into his heart and raised as his own. In time they welcomed two more children into their family, Kayla Sue and Jon Matthew. Unfortunately, after many good years Jon and Charla’s life paths led the couple in different directions and they amicably divorced in 2018.
An enthusiastic traveler, Jon loved exploring the countryside and cities around the world to see the views. His love of boating brought him to many lakes and rivers over the years and his fondness for golf to many fairways. All three of these passions he shared freely with his family and friends.
Jon is survived by his ex-wife Charla, children Robert, Joshua, Benjamin, Kayla, and Matthew, his brothers Glenn, Mark, Rick, and Kim, and beloved grandchildren, nieces, nephews, extended family, and dog Lilly. He is preceded in death by his parents. Jon was a loving father, son, brother, grandfather, dog-owner and a friend to everyone.

Jon will be laid to rest at Larkin Sunset Lawn on August 8th, 2020 at 10 AM. Due to health department guidelines, a small private service will be held for family. Attendees are requested to observe appropriate social distancing and face covering guidelines.


Uncle Jon was incredibly intelligent and passionate for learning. In every conversation he would bring up his kids: what they were doing, their successes, and their future plans. I love you Uncle Jon! Thanks for your kindness. You are missed.
