Richard Lee Stone passed away peacefully on October 13, 2020. Our loss is Heaven's gain. Born October 8, 1939, in Norfolk, VA, Dick was President of his senior class at Maury High School, attended William & Mary (Norfolk), Mississippi State University and LSU. He was in the Coast Guard and US Air Force (Vietnam era). While stationed in Columbus, MS, in 1961, he met and married the love of his life, Kathleen Miller. They had two children, Allen and Erin. Dick loved spending time with family and friends and watching LSU Tigers and Saints Football. He loved to laugh and we will miss his amazing sense of humor and the joy he brought to all he met. Among his many interests, Dick enjoyed cooking, fishing, traveling, movies, real and model trains, stamps, and coins. He was employed at Exxon Chemicals from 1965-1994 in Project Engineering, known fondly as "Old Blue". He is survived by his devoted wife of 58 years, Kathleen; son, R. Allen Stone (Joanna Fox Stone), Cumming, GA; daughter, Erin K. Stone, Baton Rouge; sisters, Delores Pallette (Roy) Elizabeth City, NC, Kaye Reilly, Greensboro, NC, and Pamela Fromm, Naples, FL; plus many wonderful nieces and nephews.
