Kenny Eugene Stall, 62, of Greenwood, beloved husband, father, brother, friend and physician died Aug. 15, 2015.
Kenny was born on Feb. 28, 1953, in Dayton, Ohio to Frank Albert and Marjorie Irene (Davies) Stall. As the 1971 Kiser High School valedictorian, he was selected by the Dayton Daily News as one of Miami Valley’s top 10 seniors. He completed his collegiate studies in 1975 at the University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florida) and his medical school education in 1980 at The Ohio State University School of Medicine, where he was named to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society.
Following a year of internal medicine training at Ohio State, he completed a residency program in obstetrics and gynecology at Indiana University Medical Center, where he met his wife, Janice Kay Fitzharris-Stall. He practiced OB/GYN in Lewisville and Carrollton, Texas for four years before returning to central Indiana in 1988 when he established South Central OB/GYN. Over the past 27 years, he practiced medicine and delivered thousands of babies at Johnson Memorial Hospital, Franciscan St. Francis Health — Indianapolis, and Community Health Network South.
The profession of medicine was Kenny’s life calling. He went above and beyond for patients and at the heart of his decisions were his patients. His dedication, compassion and patience were unparalleled. His big wide smile was infectious. And his quirky sense of humor resonated with colleagues, patients and friends. He was a passionate patient advocate, having served in numerous roles within the Indiana State Medical Association and 7th district medical society. He even dedicated his time internationally, gathering supplies for abroad and making mission trips to Honduras and Nicaragua. In his own community, he was an active member of the Rotary International Foundation, both traveling and hosting on behalf of the Rotary. From time to time, he could even be found at a Rotary meeting while on vacation. He was involved with several other organizations, including Habitat for Humanity and United Way.
Although he spent countless hours in the office and operating room, Kenny somehow found time to expand his extensive and elegant gardens. He indulged in an array of eclectic interests, including traveling, scuba diving, skiing, antiquity, politics, world history, and was even an extra in a zombie movie. He was always up for the next adventure and was never hesitant to try something at least once. If there was something he didn’t know how to do, he simply taught himself. His thirst for knowledge was insatiable. Kenny enriched and touched the lives of all those around him on this world, leaving a mark on many that will be cherished and remembered for years to come.
