Stonewall Jackson Mason

August 25, 1952 - November 5, 2020

Stonewall Jackson Mason, born on August 25, 1952, departed this life on Thursday, November 5, 2020, at the University of Virginia Health System. He was preceded in death by both parents, Lillian R. Cary and Sylvester Cary; two sisters, Leslie Johnson and Mary Clark, and one brother, Guy Mason.

Stoney, as he was called by many, worked 25 years for Turner's Cleaning Service and was currently employed by Klockner Pentaplast for the last eight months.

Stoney was an avid fisherman and gardener and had a special love for softball. You would always find him at the ballfields in the summer, spending time with friends.

Stonewall is survived by his four children, two sons, Guy S. Mason and Dominic P. Lacey, and two daughters, Robin L. Bowles (Tyrone) and Savannah N. Lacey. He is also survived by one sister, Roberta M. Fields (Barry). Stonewall also leaves to cherish four grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, one aunt, Maurice Covington, his former spouse, Roberta Mason, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, a memorial service will be held at a later date.

J. F. Bell Funeral home is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be sent to the family via the guestbook at

I was on the county floating crew in the 90's. Used to love going out to WAHS to work because I knew Stoney would get me laughing. He was so much fun to work with. Many condolences to his family

Thinking of all of you in your hour of Sorrow. We both knew Stonewall for many years. He was always smiling and always had something nice to say. Praying that you will find comfort in knowing that God only takes the best and he is now at peace with Jesus.

I met Stonny through my friend. I love plants and apparently so did stonny. He asked me for one and I gave it to him. He took good care of it. Stonny was a kind and friendly man. God bless the family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Stonewall and Roberta were such good friends on the softball fields in the mid-1980's to a newbie Charlottesville. You left a lasting impression on a young girl looking for a place to belong. Thank you.
