5000 Blue Ridge Cut Off
Kansas City, MO
On Monday February 22, 2021, Reginald Lee Stoner, beloved husband and loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully at home.

Regg was born August 15, 1935 in Independence, MO to Lloyd E. and Margaret A. (Terryberry) Stoner, the first of two sons. He earned his Eagle Scout as a teenager and graduated from William Chrisman High School in 1953. After honorable service with the U.S. Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, CA, he returned home to marry his high school sweetheart Carol JoAnne Mills. Beginning his lifelong career as a Federal employee, he went to work for the Army Map Service in Kansas City. He and JoAnne raised three sons, passing on their faith and his love of the outdoors. Regg retired from the Defense Mapping Agency in 1991.

Reginald truly lived a life of humility and service to others. A longtime leader of both the Cub and Boy Scouts, he coached junior sports teams and held the office of Priest in the Community of Christ church for more than 45 years, serving in the West College congregation and then at Stone Church where he organized monthly communion services for many years. He loved his Lord and served Him faithfully.

He is survived by: JoAnne, his wife of 64 years, his sons and their wives, Gerald & Teresa Stoner of Buckner, Paul & Karin Stoner of Neodesha, KS and Jason & Sharon Stoner of Orono, ME, and brother Kenneth & wife Mary of Independence. He also leaves behind eight precious grandchildren: David, Ben, Kelsey, Emma, Ryan, William, Samantha and Spencer – and five great-grandchildren.

A private gathering of family and friends is planned. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Stone Church Endowment Fund or to Harvesters-Community Food Network.
