Delroy Allen “Stoney” Stone of Baldwin, Wisconsin, went home to be with his Lord on November 1, 2020.

Delroy was born to Walter and Lois (Peterson) Stone on December 20, 1938, in Baldwin, Wisconsin. Delroy was in the Baldwin High School class of 1957. He joined the Army in 1958, serving six months in the 32nd Division at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, followed by five years in the Army National Guard. Delroy leased the Baldwin Standard Oil station for ten years beginning in 1960, and he was a Standard Oil commissioned agent for sixteen years. Delroy purchased Shaffner Oil in 1981 and owned Stone Oil Company for thirty years. Following his retirement, he drove for Murtha Sanitation for twenty years.

Delroy was generous by nature, and he was devoted to volunteerism. He was a volunteer with the Baldwin Fire Department for many years. He joined Collins-Spring Valley Masonic Lodge #192 and was accepted as a 32nd degree Mason in 1971. Delroy became a Shriner in 1984. He was a member of Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Baldwin, and later Calvary Assembly of God in Wilson.

Delroy enjoyed auto racing and snowmobiling. He raced cars when he was young, and he later became a fixture as a spectator at local area races. Delroy watched auto racing on television as well, and he occasionally traveled to attend national races. He was a member of Baldwin Snowmobile Club for thirty-five years, during which time he survived a near-fatal snowmobile accident. Delroy took great pride in his well-manicured lawn and his sparkling clean vehicles.

Delroy was devoted to his family, and he always shared a dash of humor and positivity to keep everyone smiling. He was united in marriage to Joyce (Scholl) Bonnes on October 1, 1961, at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. They had been married for nearly 51 years when Joyce passed away on September 29, 2011. Delroy was later married to Della (Voetman) Lathe on May 8, 2014. Delroy’s memory will be cherished by his many friends and his family, and by Della’s family as well.

Delroy is survived by his wife Della; siblings Ron (Shirley) Stone and Rosa Mae Vandenberg; children Debby (Jim) Reich, Pam Richmond, Rod (Jo) Bonnes, Jeff (Cheryl) Stone, and Tara Eshenbach; grandchildren Brian (Michelle) Reich, Angie (Ryan) McGargill, Adam (Rachel) Reich, Hollie Bonnes, Andrea Wallin, Liz Wallin, Alice (Brett) Tiffany, Shane Stone, Candace (Josh) Hilden, Travis (Michelle) Hilden, Jonathan Eshenbach, Bradin Eshenbach, and Kaylee Eshenbach; and great-grandchildren Sophie, Luke, Camille, Grayson, Chase, Brenden, Natalie, Graham, Ethan, Harrison, Jack, Trigg, Bryce, Oakley, Bowie, and Emery.

Delroy was preceded in death by his parents Walter and Lois, first wife Joyce, brother John, brother Warren, and brother-in-law Dale Vandenberg.

    • I got to watch the service today via utube. Thank you for that! I loved my uncle delroy. He was always funny and yes! Positive. He reminded me of my Dad. I remember going to a few races with him . He LOVED them!! My Dad did too. I also know how funny he was. He played cards with my mom and dad at our house when I was young and remember the laughter. I don’t remember what was so funny but the love and being together is what I remember. God has his hands full about right now. I’m sure he is making jokes with his oldest brother, my Dad John right now and Uncle Warren!
      Until we meet again. Kiss my Dad and Mom. And may our Lord. Jesus. Keep your family safe happy. We are family. Love to you all.

    • My deepest sympathy to Della and all of “Stoney’s” family. I’ll never forgot this wonderful man ….after I had my accident in 1969 and I was home recouping …..he would drive out to our house to pick me up and take me on his fuel deliveries. He did that out of the kindness of his heart and it meant a lot to me. You were the best Stoney. I’m going to miss you.
