Eli Stoll


Eli Lucus Stoll, beloved husband, son, friend, and cat-dad, died at home on Saturday, August 26 after a 10 month battle with a rare and aggressive form of lymphoma. 


Eli was born June 29, 1990 and grew up in Chippewa Falls, WI. He was a member of Parkview Elementary’s first graduating class, and attended CFMS and Chi-Hi. 


Music was a huge part of Eli’s life. He played the French horn, the trumpet, and the mellophone in countless ensembles. 


He was most passionate about marching band and dedicated almost ten years of his life to the Chi-Hi Marching Cardinals, Capitol Sound drum corps, and the UW Badger Band (attending three Rose Bowls). 


Eli was also intelligent and ambitious. He studied psychology at UW-Madison and earned his Psychology Doctorate at Indiana State University. Eli’s goal was to become a correctional psychologist – and after 5 years of incredibly hard work, he earned the title of doctor in spring 2020.


Eli and his wife Meagan first met as kids on the parks and rec soccer field. Their friendship took off in middle school and carried over into a romance in high school. Their relationship stayed strong through years of college, graduate school, and long distance. After 15 years (at least), they were married in their backyard in May 2022.  


They bought their first home in the midst of the pandemic, and moved to Clinton, IA where Eli started as a clinical psychologist at USP (United States Penitentiary) Thompson. In the summer of 2022, Eli transferred to FMC (Federal Medical Center) Rochester, where he worked until his diagnosis in October 2022.


Eli made friends everywhere he went, and he went a lot of places. His personality was magnetic, and his humor and mannerisms were infectious. He was also an incredibly kind, thoughtful, and loving person. Eli will be sorely missed.  


He is survived by his wife Meagan McAlister; his parents Debb Stoll, and Paul and Shari Stoll; his siblings Jordan (Devin) Kolve, Kacey (Travis) Kernan, Kelly (Caitlin) Foster, and Kristin (Darren) Radel; his wonderful nieces and nephews; his maternal grandmother Shirley Olson; his beloved cats – Sophie, Mo, and Squid – and his dog Bleu. 


He was preceded in death by his grandparents Fred and Rita Stoll, grandfather Richard “Dick” Olson, aunt Theresa “Tess” Stoll, and his infant brother Lucus Stoll. 


A celebration of life will be held in Eli’s hometown of Chippewa Falls, WI on Sunday, September 17th. The event will be held at the Flag Hill Pavilion in Irvine Park. The memorial portion will begin at 11am, followed by food and an afternoon of celebration. The dress code is informal. 


In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider supporting Eli and Meagan’s GoFundMe ( https://gofund.me/952790ce )to help cover medical expenses or donating to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma research.

  5. To Debb, I am so, so sorry for your loss. I want to thank you for letting me be involved in your life and the life of your family. I got to know Eli fairly well and will always remember when I first let him drive my truck before he got his license. I told him “I don’t think they like when you brake with your left foot”. He just laughed with his infectious laugh. He is and was a very intelligent and goal focused young man. He knew what he wanted and went after it including his career as well as his partner. I am so glad to have had the honor to get to know him as well as the rest of your family Debb. Thank you. And you know if there is anything I can do all you have to do is ask. I will always be there.

  6. To the Stoll family,

    My deepest condolences for your loss. My time working with Eli was too brief, but his dedication to patients and his genuine kindness were obvious. I will remember his infectious smile and effort to say hello even during the briefest of encounters. My thoughts and prayers are with Eli’s friends and family during this difficult time.

  7. I send condolences to Meagan and all of their family members. May your memories bring you comfort.

  8. I graduated from Chi-hi the same year Eli did. We were in band together and he even survived the band director (my aunt, Mrs. Dineen). We played soccer our Freshman year and always sat next to each other on the bus. He always said he was going to be a doctor and he became one. What an incredible human being, thoughts with his family and friends. R.I.P Eli.

  9. Thinking of you all! I feel so fortunate to be is aunt! We will all miss the positive energy he brought to our family gatherings. So kind to everyone! Love to all the family and his friends and to you Meagan! Sending peace and comfort.
