Terry L. Stone, 78, of Red Hill, passed away peacefully on May 15, 2023, at Pennsburg Manor after a long illness.
Born in Providence, RI, he was the son of the late George Tyler Stone and Velma Lee Rich of Tennessee. He spent his early years living in Panama and Tennessee due to his father’s military service.
Terry enjoyed the time he spent playing football, being on the wrestling team, and running track for Hatboro Horsham High School.
Following high school, Terry enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, where he was trained as a jet mechanic. He served his country honorably in Cam Ranh Bay during the Vietnam War. Following his service, he worked as a service manager for Crane Company, formerly of Warrington, PA, and then the Sunair Company of Willow Grove.
As a young adult, he was an avid bowler in a local bowling league. There, he found the love of his life, Ann Weisel, who bowled in the same league. Terry had a vast knowledge of many topics and could have been an asset to Google! He always seemed to have the answers to whatever questions he was asked. Some of his family also affectionately called him “Uncle T.”
He is survived by his beloved wife, Ann (Weisel) Stone. They celebrated 53 years of marriage last October. His children also survive him: Marie, wife of Richard Koenig; his son, Timothy Tyler Stone, and his wife, Laurel Stone-Howard; and his grandchildren: Zachary, Ben, Jackson, and Esther. He also leaves behind his brother: George Tyler Stone, and his wife, Susan. He is predeceased by his sister, Darlene Caldwell, and his parents.
All are invited to gather from 9:30 to 10:00 am on Saturday, May 27, 2023, at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, 1325 Klinerd Rd., Pennsburg. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 am. The family will invite family and friends to a Celebration of Life in his honor at his family home after the Mass. He will be laid to rest privately.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his memory to either the American Heart Association or the Wounded Warrior Project. Please visit his “Book of Memories” at falkfuneralhomes.com.
