To the Stone family, I’m so sorry for you loss. Coach Stone was my basketball coach from 78 -80. He was great man, and inspired me to play my best. I learned so much from him and always respected his kindness and knowledge. I have a lot of wonderful memories of coach and was lucky to have known him.

I got to know Jack a little when I started attending Justice Christian Church. One day he was giving out cinnamon candy to few of the members as he did most Sundays. One particular Sunday he gave me some for the first time and I felt so welcomed when he added me to the ones that received the candy. He has a special place in my heart and I will miss him. Love and prayers Connie
