James "Ted" Edward Stone of Sarnia passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at the age of 75 at St. Joseph’s Hospice in Sarnia. Ted and his cherished wife Ursula raised their family of Chris Stone (Lisa) of Blenheim, Colin Stone (Michal) of Blenheim, Steffanie Lower (Ben) of Winnipeg, David Stone of Sarnia, and Mike Stone (Chelsea) of Blenheim.
Ted was proud to see his family grow with the additions of his grandchildren, Heather Dénes (Gabe), Heidi Stone, Courtney Cantin (Codee), Madison Stone, Katrina Stone, Avia Stone, Levi Stone, and great-grandchild, Finnley Stone.
Ted is predeceased by his parents Walter and Hazel Stone and younger brother Bill Stone (1977).
Ted enjoyed playing music with friends and family with a variety of instruments including the organ and guitar. Worshiping his God, Jehovah, through his volunteer ministry alongside Ursula and fellow worshippers brought Ted much joy and contentment right up to his final days. A man of humility and resourcefulness, Ted will always be remembered for his kindness. Ted touched so many lives and will be dearly missed by the Sarnia Congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the staff of the St. Joseph’s Hospice Sarnia-Lambton for all of the wonderful work and assistance of the members of the Local Health Integration Network, including the doctors, nurses, specialists, and so many others.
Donations are appreciated to jw.org or the Sarnia-Lambton Hospice.
A private online memorial service will be held at a time and date yet to be determined.
