Ronald William Stone, age 77 of Monroe, passed away on Wednesday February 27, 2024, at the ProMedica Regional Hospital of Monroe.

Born May 7, 1946, in Detroit, Michigan. Ron attended Jefferson High School. He dropped out of school and shortly after, enlisted himself to the United States Army. He proudly served his country from 1967 to 1969 , during the Vietnam War. Ronald met and married the love of his life: Nancy Odette on April 5th of 1975. They raised a family of two children and spent over 47 wonderful years together before Nancy sadly passed away in 2022.

Ron made a living at Chrysler Automotive in Trenton, Michigan for 32 years from 1972 to 2004. He also worked at the Gibraltar Fire Department as a firefighter and EMT before retiring as a Lieutenant. Ron worked with the fire department from 1977 and retired in 1998, after 21 years of service.

In his free time, Ron spent many years at the Fire Association Clubhouse in Gibraltar visiting with friends, he enjoyed fishing, and watching the Detroit Tigers with his wife and family. He loved going to his cottage in Indian River, MI. He also loved time spent with his many cats and dogs throughout the years. Ron enjoyed sharing stories of his life, and his time in the war with his family, frequently referring to these stories as his “tiger tid-bit”. Most importantly, Ron cherished his time with his family, especially his grandkids. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
