April 29, 1989 - January 05, 2021 It is with broken hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother Michael, at the age of 31. Michael is pre-deceased by his grandparents; John and Isabel Stone, and Mary and Mike Opreff and two aunts. Will be sorely missed by his parents, John and Rose and his sister Elizabeth. He will be greatly missed by his aunts and uncles, his many cousins, and friends. Born and raised in Oakville, he attended Holy Trinity, and then went on to get both a culinary and business diploma at Humber College, and attended Guelph Humber University. Michael was a gentle soul, selfless, and always willing to lend a helping hand. A hard worker, he was with Longo's for 17 years, learning his way through many roles. A man of many talents - he was cook, a construction worker, a meat cutter, baker - fulfilling many of these at the same time. He enjoyed preparing meals with his mother, and certainly enjoyed eating those meals. Michael shared a special bond with his older sister and valued her opinion. He was very caring and enjoyed cuddling with his dogs. With a good sense of humor, he enjoyed watching comedies and sharing a laugh with friends. An avid X-Box aficionado, he liked meeting and playing with others online. An Adventurous spirit, he loved to travel and see new things. Michael enjoyed traveling with his mom and dad, particularly, enjoyed his trip to South Africa. Michael had a special place in his heart for his late aunt Mary. So for those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to Kincardine Community Living or Halton Down Syndrome Association. Our Sweet Boy, taken too soon. Due to the restrictions, a private family service will be held. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

Although i hadn't seen Michael in at least ten years I was very saddened to hear of his passing. We were good friends during elementary school and I have fond memories of going over to his house to play video games and hang out. I was on his hockey team a few times over the years as well. He was always very welcoming, kind hearted, positive and genuine. Rest in peace Michael.

I had the blessing of getting to know Mike while I was at Longo’s almost a decade ago. He always made work so fun with his great sense of humour and his willingness to always help. That’s just who he was, an amazing, genuine, kind soul. I was so blessed that he took me to my very first leafs game and it’s a memory I will hold close to my heart forever. I’m grateful to have had the privilege of his light in my life. Eternal rest grant unto him oh lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Rest in Paradise Mike Stone. ❤

I had the privilege of attending Humber college with Mike. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met. Over the last few days I’ve thought a lot about our classes together and how he always had a smile on his face. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
