July 20, 1935 - May 22, 2013
Allen Virgil Stone CAME home so he could GO home on Wednesday May 22, 2013. Born in Sinerup, WA on July 20, 1935, Mr. Stone’s family moved into the Boyd District in Chelan when he was three years old. He was a graduate of Lake Side Elementary, Chelan High School and a four year veteran of the US Navy. He always loved the lakes, rivers, streams and mountains he grew up near. Hunting and fishing were lifelong passions. Everyone who knew Allen knew of his quick, dry, wit and beautiful twinkling blue eyes. He was never more tickled than when he could get someone’s goat. Allen married his wife, Linda, in December 1978 in Edmonds, Washington, bringing a close to his years of heavy equipment operating in Alaska. He continued working for the Operating Engineers Union until 1982 when he decided to find an “inside job” and bought two taverns. Five years of “that life” brought him to a much deserved retirement and return to the Chelan Valley. By November 1987 he was hunted and fished out for the season and started on what he called his favorite job. He drove school bus for Manson School District for 12 years. He had nicknames for all the kids and they all called him Mr. Stone. Mr. Stone loved and was loved by children of all ages. Four of those very special children were Debbie Bunch, Gold Bar; Steve Jenkins, Chelan; Natalie Jenkins, Chelan; and Miss Daisy of Manson. Allen was preceded in death by his father Walter Glacier Stone, mother Beulah Mable Stone, stepfather Dewey Stone, brother George Stone and Allen’s first wife Lea Stone. Allen is survived by his wife Linda, brother Freddie (Jean Stone), sister –in- law Janis (Lowell) Jenkins, brother- in- law Robert Bridges, eight grandchildren, three great- grandchildren, and several loving nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Per Allen’s request, he will be cremated. There will be a celebration of Allen’s life on his birthday, July 20, 2013, details to follow. Services entrusted to Precht Rose Chapel.
