Obituary

Bobby "Bob" Max Stone, Retired TSgt. U.S. Air Force, was born on April 8, 1935 in Enola, Arkansas to Olen and Ollie Stone, and he grew up in Mount Vernon, AR. He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1954. During basic training, he met his wife, "Connie" Stone. They married in 1956, and moved to Waco where he attended Baylor University until being stationed in Laredo. As a crew chief, he did four tours of Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War and retired after 21 years of service.

A fierce supporter of the underdog, Bob was known to champion fatherless children on his little league teams and befriend and shelter those down on their luck. Always adventurous, he took to the open road after retirement as a truck driver, where he immensely enjoyed meeting and talking to people all over the lower 48 states and seeing the beauty of our Country. A colorful storyteller on his many adventures and experiences, his tales will be greatly missed.

His parents Olen Stone and Ollie Fulmer Stone, and his sisters and brothers, Lucille Stone, Charlene Adkisson, and Tommy Rex Stone precede him in death. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Consuelo I. Stone, and his five children, Joyce Bernal, Bobby Max Stone and wife Jean Stone, Paul Stone, Kathy Kindall and husband Dameon Kindall, and Vicki Watts and husband David Watts; as well as his three grandchildren Mary Bernal, Bobby Max Stone, III, and Jeffrey Stone. His sister-in-law Barbara Jenkins Stone, and two nephews, Michael Stone, M.D. and Timothy Stone, M.D. and their families of Little Rock and Bentonville, AR, respectively, also survive him.

A church service at Central Christian Church (720 N. Main with parking at 107 E. Quincy) will be held at noon on January 2, 2018, followed by a full honors funeral service at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery at 1:45 p.m. A Celebration of Life will begin at 10:00am at Central Christian Church in the Parlor prior to the funeral services.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a local animal shelter or the START Center for Cancer Care in San Antonio.
