Ronald Herl Stone
January 10, 1942-January 1, 2021
DAVENPORT-Ronald Herl Stone, a loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather, honest and hardworking mechanic, and a kind heart to all, passed away on January 1, 2021 at his home in Davenport, IA.
Ronald was born January 10, 1942 to Clarence and Ella Stone in Cheyenne, WY. As soon as he was old enough to hold a wrench and a flashlight, Ronald was always found fixing engines. Ronald served in the Army from 1963 to 1966, and joined the reserves until 1969. Ronald worked as a Mill Operator for Alcoa, where he became a trusted employee and a reliable friend. In his free time, Ronald enjoyed fishing, spending time with family and friends, and working on lawnmowers in his shop, Stoney's Lawnmower & Small Engine Repair. He retired from Alcoa in 2002; following retirement, Ronald continued to search for new fishing spots with his family and explore Iowa's countryside.
With a caring heart and open arms, Ronald will be remembered for helping any neighbor, friend, or family in need. As a survivor of lung cancer, Ronald continues to inspire others to live each day to the fullest.
His loving memory will be kept alive by his adorning wife Maryjane Stone; brother Steven (Maria) Stone; children Ronald Andrew "Andy" Stone, Harold Peavey, Jon Peavey, Nathan Dailey, Devlen Dailey-Gempis; and grandson Kelley Stone.
Preceded in death by his father Clarence Stone and mother Ella Stone; brothers Albert Jean "AJ" Stone and Danny Lee Stone; and daughter Rhonda Stone; granddaughter Amanda Stone. The family would like to thank Freedom Christian Church for its undying support and tender care. In lieu of flowers, please consider a tribute donation to wife Maryjane Stone at 1230 West 6th Street Davenport, IA, 52802.
