Paul “Jim” Stone, 75, of Red Oak passed away unexpectedly Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, at his residence.

Jim was born in Detroit on Jan. 6, 1942, a son of the late Cassie Louise (Detty) and Paul Gilbert Stone. He graduated from Lake Shore High School in St. Clair Shores. He married Christel “Jane” White on Dec. 8, 1962, also in St. Clair Shores. The couple lived in the Almont area until purchasing the Bear Paw Resort in Luzerne in 1976. Jim was past president of the Knock Busters Archery Club and taught archery through 4-H. He was past president of the Luzerne Business Association, served as an officer and bingo secretary for many years at the Mio Moose Lodge and was also a bingo caller at the Luzerne Northwoods Club. Jim was a licensed ham radio operator, an avid fisherman, bow hunter and radio-controlled airplane enthusiast, and served as secretary for the AuSable Valley R.C. Fliers Club. Jim will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend who loved to tell a good story and share a joke. He was the “life of the party.”

Surviving are his wife, Christel “Jane” Stone; daughters, Marlana (Donald) Blamer and Malinda Stone (John Ross); grandchildren, Cassie and Katie Ross; step-grandchildren, Sabrina and Jacklyn Ross; step-great-grandchildren, Dallas and Kyra McGillis and Matthew Heinz; and also his beloved dachshund, Belle.

In accordance with Jim's wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of Jim’s life will be planned at a later date. Arrangements by Lashley Funeral Home, Mio.
