William ‘Bill’ Stone Jr., 72, geophysicist who worked with Amaco, Texaco and Chevron

Early on Sunday morning, March 3, 2019, William “Bill” Stone Jr., 72, quietly slipped from his earthly life into the arms of Jesus. He was born Nov. 25, 1946, in Marion, South Carolina, the son of the late William LeRoy Stone Sr. and Helen Eveleta Ezzelle Stone.

Bill was a loving husband to his wife June for 12 years and eight months. He served his country honorably in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War as a Vietnamese interpreter. He was a geophysicist and had been employed with Amaco, Texaco and Chevron oil companies. Bill was a member of Grace Baptist Church. He had a great sense of humor with a very dry wit.

Surviving are his wife, June Dyson Stone; nephew, Chris Gaskins of Wilmington; great-niece, Janessa Gaskins of Pittsboro; nephew, Robert Dyson of Seattle, Washington; and niece, Sheila Warner of Virginia.

The family will receive friends from 1 to 2 p.m., Friday, March 8, followed by funeral services at 2 p.m. at Andrews Mortuary Valley Chapel with the Rev. J.D. Herchenhahn officiating. Interment will follow in Oleander Memorial Gardens.

Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or the North Carolina Heart Association.
