Carl Leon Stone of Watertown, Connecticut passed away peacefully at his home on Jan 12, 2023 at the age of 86.
Born in 1936, Carl, the son of Trurlu and Russell Stone, spent his childhood in Oklahoma. He later earned a Bachelors degree in English and Speech from Austin College, Texas and a Masters at Florida State University, both equipping him well for a life of adventure and lively conversation.
Known for being a colourful character, Carl brought joy and laughter to each profession he entered. Amongst his credits are work and travel companion to the famous tap dancer "Peg Leg Bates".
Also, stints as television sports caster and weatherman. After a spontaneous move to New York City, he fulfilled his creative dream of authoring thirteen published novels as well as writing, "Big Thumbs" which he brilliantly adapted into a movie from his screen play.
Over the course of Carl's interesting life, his endless curiosity led him to reside in many states across America including New York and California where he found much enjoyment in the evolving flower-child free love scene.
A devoted student and teacher of Metaphysics, Carl was a man of diverse facets, a genius in his own right who lived exactly as he wished; an example of courage and inspiration who touched the lives of many.
He is survived by his loving wife Mei Stone, sisters Beverlee Brown, Barbara Wiser and Jacquie Vaughn (deceased) and a lifetime of friends who will miss him always.
