April 22, 1958 – Toronto, ON
February 8, 2018 – Calgary, AB

With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Rob Stone on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at the age of 59 Years.

Rob was a loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and friend to many.

Rob and Brenda loved to entertain, and hosted many, many, boisterous family events. Rob was the ultimate host, welcoming everyone. Besides his family, and friends, he loved golf. Rob would golf whenever the opportunity would arise, and made many trips to the Masters with Brenda to enjoy the golf with his brother and family. They would also travel to other winter golf destinations to escape the snow. He loved spending time at the family cottage in Ontario with his mother Marilyn and enjoyed fishing with his brother David and nephew Daniel. Rob had a long career with Shaw Cable, and made many good friends there.

Rob leaves behind his loving wife and best friend, Brenda; his daughter Jennifer (fiancé Braden Bond); his son Geoff and Geoff’s son Hudson, Rob’s favorite grandson. Rob is also survived by his mother, Marilyn; brother and sister-in-law, David and Chrisanne; and niece and nephew Taylor Anne and Daniel. He was predeceased by his father George. Rob will also be dearly missed by his extended “McDonald” family.

    Dear Brenda, Geoff and Jennifer,
    Words simply cannot express our sorrow and shock at your loss. Rob was a great friend and co-worker for 27 years. He was one of the first people I met at work when I relocated to Calgary, and of course Christine knew him before then. We became good friends and skiing buddies, and I could always depend on him at work, as well as comparing notes on parenting etc. There is a large piece of us missing now.

    Brenda, our deepest sympathies are with you. In the short time that we spent with you and Rob, we enjoyed your company very much! I will remember Rob as a good natured, kind man. It brings a smile to my face when I remember how he teased me about taking pictures of doors in Europe! I hope as you go forward from the sadness of his absence, that you take comfort in knowing that there a many people around you, including us, that are ready to be there for you.

  16. To the Stone Family–We spent such great times together growing up as cousins. I always looked up to Rob–he was the oldest cousin and I thought he knew everything! We had great family “all season” gatherings in Ontario and we missed Rob when he moved to Calgary to start his new life out west. I admired his zest for life, his love of people, his passion for sports and the outdoors, and of course his close relationship with Brenda and the kids, his mother, Marilyn, his brother David and family. You will live on in my memories always, Rob. Love, Cousin Leslie Stone

  17. Dear Brenda, Dave, Marilyn and family,

    I am greatly saddened by the news of the sudden loss of Rob. I know you must all be great pain dealing with this tragedy. My thoughts are with you all as you say goodbye.

    Rob, his brother Dave, his cousin Leslie and myself Scott, spent a lot time together as kids seeing each other at the many family events. He was the oldest of our cousin group of four (5 year difference between Rob and Leslie), and took the role of a leader coming up with fun things to that always had the element of adventure. I loved Rob and looked up to him as I was growing up. I will cherish the many fond memories.

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you come to terms with this terrible loss.

    Love Cousin Scott
