William “Bill” Stone Jr. Obituary

William “Bill” E. Stone Jr., loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, March 19, 2024 at Carle Hospital in Urbana.

Bill was born to William “Rocky” and Wanda (Wells) Stone on March 20, 1952 in Urbana. He married Anna Schweighart on March 13, 2010 in Philo.

He is survived by his wife of 14 years, Anna Stone; three children, Wes (Morgan) Stone, Samantha (Randy) Pettry, and Hannah Stone; four step-children, Nik Hooker, Linnsey Hooker, Caley (Bryce) Compton, and Kyle (Kaitlyn) Kalk; four grandchildren; nine step-grandchildren; one sister, Linda Lyons; and one niece, Kristie (Nathan) Hart. He was preceded in death by his parents, William “Rocky” and Wanda Stone.

Bill adored his family more than anything, never missing a game and making sure he was part of every special moment. Bill was absolutely his kids and grandkids #1 fan! He had a passion for golf, traveling, gardening (tending to 100 indoor plants to be exact!), a love for animals, and he was hands down the #1 Cubbies fan!

A visitation will be held from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Monday, March 25 at the Joines Funeral Home in Villa Grove with the memorial service to immediately follow, where family friend and former pastor Mike Picklesimer will be officiating.

Memorial donations may be made to ACS Hope Lodge and mailed to American Cancer Society 4207 Lindell Blvd St. Louis, MO 63108 or by clicking here.

Rest in peace, Bill (Dad), your love and memories will live on forever.
