Stanley was born January 16, 1926 in Breckenridge, MI to the late Harold and Ethel (Shepherd) Stone. Upon receiving his HS diploma, Stanley would go on to serve his country in the United States Army Air Corp. After being honorably discharged, Stanley would marry Jeanne Aldrich on July 2, 1949 in Monroe, MI. Sadly, she passed away August 12, 1989. Stanley would go on to meet Mildred Baker, and the two were wed on April 6, 1990 in Monroe, MI. Sadly, she too preceded Stanley in death on June 24, 2010.
Stanley worked for the Michigan State Police for 12 years, followed by being a Department Manager for the Michigan Department of State for 26 years. He retired in 1984. After retiring, he worked as a Grant Coordinator for Monroe Twp from 1985-1990. He was a faithful parishioner of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, and a proud member of the American Legion, AMVETS, the Elks, and the Moose.
To cherish his memory, Stanley leaves three sons and one stepson: Paul (Kathy) Stone, Stephen (Dawn) Stone, John (Eileen) Stone PhD, and Michael Turner; one daughter, Sandra (Don Wells); one sister, Barbara (the late Russel) Carrick; nine grandchildren; fourteen great grandchildren; five great great grandchildren; and very special neighbors Brian and Kelly Banek, along with their children Dylan and Jordyn.
Along with his parents, wives, and brother in law, Stanley is also preceded in death by four brothers: Lyle, Forrest, Carl, and James Stone.
The family would like to say a special "Thank You" to everyone at Brookdale and Elara Caring Hospice for their unwavering care and compassion they showed the Stone family.
