Obituary, Jeffrey William Stowe

Jeffrey William Stowe, 59, a lifelong area resident, passed away on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at his home in Stanfordville. A loving father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and husband, Jeffrey relished country life and growing up in Millbrook.

Born on January 16, 1962 in Poughkeepsie, NY, he was the son of Elizabeth (Sherow) Stowe of Millbrook, NY and the late William A. Stowe. Jeffrey was a graduate of Millbrook High School class of 1980. He attended West Point and transferred to Siena College where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1985. On July 4, 2003 under a willow tree in Goshen, CT he married Deborah Coconis who survives in Poughkeepsie, NY with their son, Eliakim Stowe. Mr. Stowe was a Principal Sales Representative for Kompan Inc., where he took pride in the relationships and trust he built with his clients.

Mr. Stowe was a natural athlete, excelling in high school football and baseball at the All-County level. He was on ski patrol and played football at West Point and lacrosse at Siena College, where he was known as a “keg on legs” due to his barrel chest and swift speed. Not limited to land, Jeff mastered the sport of barefoot skiing. It was a wonder to watch his tumble turns, side slides, and one foots on his beloved Tyler Lake in Goshen, CT. Mr. Stowe coached Taconic Little League and could be seen playing catch every morning with his son, Eli, while they waited for the school bus. Nothing brought Jeff greater pleasure than spending time with his son.

In addition to his mother, wife, and son, Mr. Stowe is survived by his brother, Martin Curtis Stowe and his wife, Tina, of Fort Mills, SC. He is also survived by two nephews, William Paton and Corbin Stowe and two nieces, Gabrielle Stowe and Miranda Stowe-Fernando.

Funeral services will be private. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made to Town of Washington Recreation, Attn: Jeff Stowe Fund, PO Box 667, Millbrook, NY 12545. To send the family an online condolence, please visit
