January 21, 1923 – July 06, 2010

Hal was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. He returned with his British bride to Toronto after WWII where he raised his family and pursued his passion of teaching. He retired to Salt Spring Island, BC in 1980. He was pre-deceased by his loving wife of 50 years, Joan F. Stone and his brother, Jack Stone of Brampton, Ontario. Well known as a unique combination of artist, activist, philanthropist, golfer, landscaper and friend, he is survived and sorely missed by his son, Calvin (Charlene) & granddaughters, Meghan and Jessica of Lake Simcoe, Ontario; his daughter, Shelley Stone of Leader, Saskatchewan & grandsons, Shane (Miriam) and Blake (Tawnya) and great-grandchildren, Hailey Stone and Aven Mitchell of Medicine Hat, AB. As well, he is missed by his wonderful Island family too numerous to be named. At his request, there will be no funeral, however, the family will get together with some Island friends and plan a memorial service to be held later this summer. In lieu of flowers, Hal has requested donations to be made to Lady Minto Hospital in Ganges.
