Mr. Larry Matthew "Stoney" Stone, age 65, of Mushroom Road in Olive Hill, went home to be with the Lord, Friday morning, Jan. 20, 2017, at King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland.
He was born June 4, 1951, in Carter County, a son of the late Edward and Lola Hanshaw Stone.
Stoney was a member of the Bairtown Church of God and worked for the Carter County Road Department for over 30 years. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, hunting, going to church and sitting on the back porch writing and singing songs of praise for the Lord.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by one brother, Timothy Stone; his first wife, Linda Boggs Stone; and one brother-in-law, Phil Hedge.
Stoney is survived by his wife, Patricia Holbrook Stone; seven children, Larry Michael Stone, Joey Allen Stone, James Matthew Stone, James Holbrook, Bill Holbrook, Jonathan Holbrook, and Amanda Holbrook Wagoner; sixteen grandchildren; one great grandchild; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Donnie and Roberta Stone and Allen and Pam Stone all of Olive Hill; and two sisters and one brother-in-law, Patty Hedge and Sherry and Wayne Debord all of Olive Hill. He also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss him. Everyone from his family, friends, doctors and nurses would witness his love for Christ, even at his weakest moments he gave God praise. Stoney was a light and inspiration to so many. Someday we will meet him at the top of the stairs. — Stairway to Heaven
