Jackie Ray StoneJanuary 10, 1956 ~ June 2, 2020 (age 64)
Jackie Ray Stone was born to Thelma Stone and Robert Lee Brown in Blair, SC, who have both preceded him in death. He was raised by a wonderful step-father James Edward Wadlington, who also preceded him in death.
Jackie gave his life to Christ at an early age and was a faithful member of Love Chapel Holiness Church until he became too ill to attend. He loved his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and they could do no wrong in his eyes. He loved going fishing and his grandsons often accompanied him on his trips. His favorite television show was WWF and he knew all the wrestlers by their names and in each weight class. “Jack” as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, was a loving gentle giant, who use to sit in his favorite rocking chair on their porch and communicate with his neighbors until he became ill. He was loved by all that came in contact with him.
Jackie drove an 18-wheeler concrete truck for a number of years until his health failed him.
He married Annette Brown in August of 1975, and three children were born in that union, one that preceded him in death, Jennifer. Those he leaves to cherish his precious and loving memories include his daughters, Stacy Alston (Brandon) and Angela Stone (Nick); sisters, Vivion Stone-Ferguson (Rob) and Lanita Wadlington, Kathy Lyles ; brothers, James Anthony Wadlington (Zena), Robert Lee lyles (Bridgett); twelve grandchildren, Matthew Stone, Tiammorian Gallman, Deandre Gallman, Tiandre Gallman, Luther Gallman, Jordan Stone, Zykeria Alston, Bryson Alston, Kanaga Wise, Latorya Griffin, Julius Griffin and Zykeria Griffin; four great-grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends; and last but not least, he leaves to mourn the love of his life of nearly thirty years, Quanda Hopkins.
