Michael Stone

MORGAN TOWNSHIP —

Michael Stone, age 67, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Friday, May 2, 2014.

The son of Dr. Charles M. and Mary Alice (Gilmore) Stone, he was born in Warren, Ohio on Jan. 31, 1947. After graduating from Gilmour Academy in Gates Mills, Ohio, Mike received a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Boston College in 1969.

Mike began his career at The Cleveland Trust Co. where he served as a trust officer and later worked for other banking institutions in that capacity. Most recently he worked as a financial representative through Fortune Financial Services, Inc.

Loving the arts, Mike served on the boards of the Ashtabula Arts Center and the Ashtabula Arts Center Foundation. He was a member of the Bridge Street Partners who invested in the vision of making the Historic Bridge Street in the Ashtabula Harbor become a destination. A former member and President of the Ashtabula Rotary Club, Mike valued and understood the meaning of community service. He was seen behind the scenes as supporter of LEADERship Ashtabula County since it’s inception in 1988.

Family was everything to Mike. Nothing beat going to Skull Session with The Ohio State Marching Band followed by a Buckeyes football game with his family. He also loved shooting hoops with his grandsons or walking in the woods with his dogs along the scenic Grand River near his home. Mike was a gentle man, a loving husband, very proud father and grandfather, an avid reader and sports enthusiast.

Mike is survived by his wife of 41 years, Marta King Stone; daughter, Abby (Dan) O’Brien; son, Ted Stone (fiancé Natalie Van Meter); two grandsons, Thomas and Charlie O’Brien; and siblings, Mary Alice (Bob) Grace, Gigi (Todd) Hagenah, and David (Marie) Stone.

There will be a “Gathering” to honor Mike and remember the life of this very special husband, father, grandfather, friend, and community supporter at the Ashtabula Arts Center, on Thursday, May 8th, from 3:30 to 7 p.m.

The Jefferson Home of FLEMING & BILLMAN FUNERAL DIRECTORS AND CREMATORY, 49 W. Jefferson St., Jefferson, is honored to serve Mike’s family. In lieu of flowers, the family suggest contributions be made to the Ashtabula Arts Center, 2928 W. 13th St., Ashtabula, Ohio 44004 or the Lift Bridge Community Association, P.O. Box 3111, Ashtabula, Ohio 44005-3111, envelopes will also be at the “Gathering”.
