I've known Stone when I was a senior in high school. We were in the same pre-calculus class. Although it was hard, I would have never gotten through my last year of high school without getting to know him. His sense of humor and bright personality would always brighten everybody's day. My deepest condolences.

Stone, my buddy. Thanks for showing me the ropes when I came to JWU and keeping a smile on my face whenever you were around. I’ll miss everything about you (your one of a kind voice and sense of humor are at the top of the list) and always cherish our endlessly happy memories together. We love you forever, kid.

We killed it on the field man. I will always remember screaming at the top of my lungs in net calling out the ball positions, calling slides and shots and what not. You were always a riot on the field and you played hard. We never really spoke off of the field but you were a great teammate. Rest easy.

Stone and I were randomly placed roommates freshman year at Johnson & Wales. He was immediately friendly, and larger than life. He instantly made hoards of friends with people from all across campus. He was the definition of "full of life" and was just as dedicated to his lab work. We grew apart after freshman year but every time I ran into him over the past four years we picked up exactly where we left off - usually with a laugh or two. He will be sorely missed and my thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends both here at JWU and back home in Maine.

I’ve known Stone since I was in 5th or 6th grade. We got close from playing basketball together in the 6th grade, and ever since then I’ve considered him more than a friend, a brother. He was a role model to me and everyone around him. He was strong, smart, and so funny, he knew how to put a smile on everyone’s face. I’ll never forget all the laughs we shared together. Hearing that you passed was so unbelievable, I didn’t want it to be real. You were such a great person and you only deserved the best. May you rest on in peace. My true condolences go out to the family.

I remember him fondly. A young, charismatic young man full of promise and work ethic. I had the pleasure of meeting him when he was a co-worker of mine. He was so full of life, humor, drive and intelligence. His passing comes as a tremendous shock, and there are zero words to describe it. All I know is this... he was my friend and I will miss him tremendously. Rest easy, Pebs. Gone way way too soon.

Stone was a student in my class during my first year as a teacher at Pettingill School in Lewiston. I knew right away that he would make an impact on me and the others and he sure did. He was the class clown but was a leader and a good friend and hard worker who cared greatly about his work and grades. In the years after 5th grade, that infectious smile was always there and it was always a pleasure to see him. I’ll never forget the first day of school when each student had the opportunity to ask me, their new teacher, a question. Most had questions about homework and expectations, but not Stone. He asked me if I “liked pie.” Also, his 5th grade human reproduction explanation was memorable and will be hard to top. He was special and I will be missed. Peace to you, my friend.
