In January of 1947, I was six and we had moved into Cedar Crest. As soon as it turned warm, my Dad installed a basketball hoop over our driveway. Very shortly after, a kid named T.C. Stone arrived ready to play. I came to see him as my Big Brother.

I met T.C. when I was in the 5th grade at John Neely Bryan. We became friends and remained friends for all these years. He was a good friend who was always there for me. I will surely miss him . My prayers go out to Darlene and his family.

Whether it was when he was a Job Steward, Business Agent or Secretary- Treasurer of Local 745 T.C. enforced our contracts with FIRE and BRIMSTONE ! He helped so many Teamsters not only local but nationwide. T.C. Stone was a Teamster's TEAMSTER !

I have know and worked with T C for 50 years. We were neighbors in Irving and went through good and bad times. We worked together at YFS and he later became my boss at the union. We discovered that both my dads and his family grew up in the same area of east Texas. That grew us closer in later years. T C truly loved his family and friends. He will be missed by all us that loved him.
RIP T C Stone

TC and I met on the school bus taking us to James Bowie grade school in north Oak Cliff due to over crowding of the schools in south OakCliff that was Jan. 1949 we were 8 years old and full of life just two rowdy boys that hit it off from the start and that friendship never wavered . I talked with him a little over a week ago and I already miss him and he will be miss by so many of his friends and there are many . I will no longer have someone to correct me when I am wrong with times and dates as TC would do .
Goodby big man !
