It is with great sadness that the family of Richard Stone announces his passing on October 20, 2021 at the Chatham-Kent Hospice at the age of 75 after a long battle with cancer.

Born in Windsor, Richard was the oldest son of the late Lawrence & Rita (Perrault) Stone.  He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Michelle (Grenier) and son Craig.  Survived by brother Robert (Ann) Stone and sisters Deborah (Dave) Demars and Darlene (Joe) Langlois.  Predeceased by brother Louis.  He’ll be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Richard enjoyed hunting, trapshooting, fishing, was a civil war re-enactor, long-time member of the Southwestern Ontario Civil War Round Table, Rondeau Rod & Gun Club and Blenheim Freedom Library & Military Museum.  He was also a huge NASCAR fan.  Richard retired at 60 having worked over 30 years at Crown Metal Packaging.

Special thanks to the Chatham-Kent Hospice doctors & staff and Dr. Tom Perkin.

Visitation for Richard will take place at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Friday October 22, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. which will be followed by a graveside service at Evergreen Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Chatham-Kent Hospice would be appreciated.

Sorry for your loss Michelle and Craig. After reading some of the comments I feel that I have to add one more to the list. I would often tell Dick he should have been a priest I would go just to hear his sermon. Marc Bechard.

Michelle and Craig: Our deepest sympathies to you, Craig and family. Dick and myself shared many a laugh while working at Crown. Dick will be missed by all that knew him.

Michelle - Sorry to hear of Richard’s passing. Thoughts and prayers to you and your son.

So sorry to hear of your loss,,, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

Sending deepest sympathies to the family. My husband Dan Crawford (who recently passed away) always spoke very highly of Dick. The employees of Crown Metal Packaging were a tight knit group and shared many laughs. May your loving memories bring you comfort.

So sorry for your loss.

Michelle - Our heartfelt sympathies to you and your family. Richard's suffering is finally over. Ina and Brian Eby

Michelle,Craig & Families. Our Deepest Condolences. Praying all the wonderful memories you have will fill the emptiness in your hearts and bring you comfort. Thinking and praying for all of you. Scott & Shelley Mihalco & family

To Michelle, Craig and the Stone family - I have had a lot of great times and memories with Dick over the last 30 years. Some people thought Dick was a little stubborn at times - but they have that confused with integrity, a quality I most admired about Stoney. My children also have a lot of fond memories of Mr. Stone, a kind and funny man. Stoney will be greatly missed but never forgotten, he had a life long impact of those around him. Tim and Janet Aitken

Michelle my deepest condolences to you & your family. Richard was a wonderful man. Treasure all of your wonderful moments. RIP Richard

My sincere sympathy Michelle. I am thinking of you at this sad time! Edna

My sincere condolences Michelle to you and your family

Michelle, my thoughts and prayers are with you and Craig; and Dick's family during this difficult time. "Stoney" fought a very brave and good fight and is no longer suffering. No words can fill the void. I have many fond memories over the years of our family gatherings and smile as I reminisce!

Our heartfelt sympathy to you, Michelle , and to all the family.
