Gary Eugene Stone, 74, prolific entrepreneur and real estate investor, passed away August 25, 2023, in Saratoga Springs, NY, surrounded by his devoted wife and daughters.
He was born in Saratoga Springs, NY on April 17th, 1949. His parents, Eugene and Bertha (Strakos) Stone, instilled in him his strong family values, disciplined work ethic, and his devout Catholic faith. He became a highly decorated Eagle Scout as a young man and was credited with saving the lives of two men on separate occasions. Gary graduated from Saratoga Springs High School, excelling and lettering in football, while also starting his first business.
Mr. Stone, throughout his life, was a business and real estate visionary who presented his many talents to the world. His inquisitive nature, keen intelligence and fearless courage led to the ownership of many successful businesses and real estate ventures. Gary had seemingly innate wisdom and leadership abilities. He was a humble man never speaking of his many accomplishments.
Although Mr. Stone was always a hardworking and accomplished businessman, his heart belonged to his family. Gary is survived by his beautiful wife of 52 years, Bonnie (Bowers) Stone, cherished daughters Kelly Stone Voland (Kenneth), Tara Stone (Matthew Scampini), Courtney Stone (Todd Cafarelli). Mr. Stone was a doting and adored grandfather, survived by his grandchildren, Ashton and Rhys Cafarelli and Stone and Steele Scampini. Gary was a lover of animals, and is survived by his beloved Yorkshire Terrier Charlie, as well as his grand-dogs, Koko and Whiskky. Gary is also survived by his loving sister, Wendy Thomas, and nephew Justin Thomas (Katie). Services are private and at the convenience of the family.
