Stone died at the Veterans Affairs nursing home in Waco. He served in the Army from April 1971 to April 1974. W.H. Littles & Sons Funeral Home in Waco has coordinated with the Fort Hood Casualty Office to ensure he will receive military honors.

The Veterans Land Board works with the local community and fellow veterans support groups to ensure no Veteran is ever left behind after they pass away. The Central Texas community is encouraged to attend.

The Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery is at 11463 State Highway 195 in Killeen.
