John Stone 82 – Sydney / Georgetown, ON

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden peaceful passing of John Daniel Stone at home on Tuesday, April 2, 2014.

Born in Bell Island, Nfld on September 5, 1931, he was the son of the late William and Georgina (Steele) Stone.

He is survived by his wife, Martha (McCarthy); two stepdaughters Valerie (Jay) Hollohan; Joanne (Ian) Cann, both of Sydney and three grandchildren Taylor, Stephanie and Ryan. He is also survived by his brothers, Harry (Joyce), Billy (Stella), Angus (Mary), Eric (Betty), Dan (Vivian), all of Ontario; Jim (Helen), Labrador; sisters, Margaret (Ed), Ontario and Theresa (Tom), Nfld. John has many nieces, nephews, in-laws, grandnieces and grandnephews who will miss him dearly, and he will be missed by all who knew him, especially the staff at Casino Nova Scotia. He was predeceased by a sister Mary in childhood.

He lived most of his life in Georgetown, ON, where he retired from Ford Canada and recently settled in Cape Breton. John was a quiet soul; a very easy going man who like simplicity. He was a long standing member of the KOC (Nfld, Ontario, Sydney). John was an avid reader and a stellar crossword person.

I would like to offer my condolences to the Stone family. John was One of the first men I met at Ford Bramalea in 1968.
He was always helpful when I asked a question about the job.He had a good sense of humour. I would meet him sometimes in the mall after he retired
he was happy with life.

We send to John's family our sympathy on the passing of your father, brother, grandfather. John and I worked together for many years at Ford on the shipping dock. When we worked together he always brought in the Globe&Mail and when he retired I missed reading it. He was a gentle man and easy to work with.Love to all of you. Alex & Marg Thompson.
