It is with profound sadness and loving memories that we announce the passing of David Gordon Stone, age 62, on Friday March 4, 2016. He passed suddenly, while doing what he loved, hiking towards Thorn Island.
Beloved husband and best friend of Debbie. Proud father of Andrea (Serge) and Michael (Laura). Loving grandfather of Riley. Son of the late Gordon Stone, survived by his mother Anne and sister Jo-Anne (Gerry). Special son-in-law to Lois Swan and fond brother-in-law to the Smith and Swan families.
David lived his life with a firm belief in putting family first, and he will be greatly missed by both his extended family and friends.
A graduate of Queen’s University Law School, David had a passion for the law and served as a Small Claims Court Judge. He was also particularly proud of his work with the Office of the Children’s Lawyer. Born and raised in the Soo, David was an avid outdoor enthusiast. He was always thrilled to be hunting, camping, or fishing with his family and friends.
