David Dayle Stone, of Fonda, loving husband to Anita L. Stone, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 1, 2020, at the age of 83 with his loving family by his side. Born in Tioga Center on December 30, 1936 he was the beloved son of the late Elbert and Doris (Crowley) Stone.
Besides his parents, David is predeceased by his loving wife, Anita L. Stone, whom he married on March 15, 1963 and passed away on April 29, 2020.
David was a devoted father, husband and grandfather. He loved talking about his beloved Yankees, politics, motorcycles and his military experience, which he was very proud of. If David wasn’t found at the local pub playing darts, he could be found thumbing through historical records researching his family history.
He is survived by his brother Roger Stone of Branford CT.; his loving children William E. Stone, Jennifer L. (William) Tusa, and Nancy E. (Tim) Morford. He is also survived by his grandchildren whom he adored Jessica (Dillon) Davis, Amanda Krumm, Charles Krumm, Thomas Krumm, and Jason Perrone Jr., Nicholas (Yesenia) Battisti, Kristianna Battisti, Joseph Battisti, Jackson Stone, Dylan Stone and his beloved great grandchildren Victoria and Liam; and by many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
During his lifetime, David worked as an Air Traffic Controller for Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated (Airinc), out of Bohemia, NY; and proudly served as Radio Operator in the US Army from 1960 to 1966.
