1947 - 2021
THE VILLAGES, FL - On June 28, 2021, Will Stone died at his home in The Villages, FL. He was 73 years old. Will was born in West Allis and raised in Caledonia, WI, with his brother, Doug and three sisters: Debbie, Phyllis, and Janette.
As a young man, Will studied at Brigham Young University, but he dropped out to join the Navy, which sent him to Vietnam. With his first wife, Diana, he had two sons: Brian and Bruce. Will lived in Kenosha and worked for twenty-five years at the nuclear power station in Zion, IL.
He earned his college degree from the University of Wisconsin, Parkside, and later completed a graduate certificate at the Kellogg School of Management. After his divorce, Will remarried to Sue Bristow, his wife of thirty-five years. With Sue's blessing, Will became a business owner (The Chocolate Chicken, Egg Harbor, WI), and the couple spent a decade on the Wisconsin peninsula before retiring to Florida. Will was an American classic, a big guy with a large heart, a self-made man who knew the value of community.
A Celebration of Will's Life will be held on July 27, 2021, at Cody's Roadhouse in Sumter Landing, FL.
Will is survived by his wife, Sue; his sons: Brian and Bruce; their wives: Jenny and Nicole; and his grandchildren: Sophie and Campbell.
