1940 – 2013

NORWAY — Elwood “Stub” Stone, 73, of South Paris, died at Stephens Memorial Hospital on Wednesday morning, Dec. 11, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Waterford on Oct. 30, 1940, son of Herbert and Merlie Kimball Stone.

Stub attended Paris High School, graduating in 1959. He was a gutsy athlete and wowed his girlfriends with his dancing — often winning dance contests and engaging a multitude of friends.

After high school, he attended Hanson’s Barber School. He apprenticed at Stan’s Barber Shop in Bethel and worked there for several months prior to joining Ed’s Barber Shop in Norway. After several years of barbering and storytelling, Stub decided to apply his wealth of knowledge in several different career paths.

In 1960, Stub married the love of his life, Jeanie Andrews, and together they had three children.

He was a jack of all trades and a master of many. His jobs required knowledge, skill and licensures in several mechanical areas. For many years, he managed maintenance for Paris Manufacturing, and later at the Paricon warehouse.

Stub was an active contributor to the community, participating with youth programs such as scouting, and building ball fields and parks in his town.

He loved to attend his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and was often a nemesis for the referees. Stub was also active as a longtime member of the First Congregational Church of South Paris, Tres Dias, Vida Nueva, the IOOF and the volunteer fire department.

One of Stub’s greatest legacies was the family camp. With his wife always by his side, he built and preserved several cottages for their children and grandchildren, creating a place to be together and celebrate each other.

Stub is survived by Jeanie; his son, Scott and his wife, Tia, and their children Matthew and Thacher; his daughter, Sheila Berman and her husband, Mark, and their two children, Noah and Eliza; his daughter, Susan Hanley and her children, Caitlin and Allyssa. He is also survived by his sisters, Carleen Morton and husband, Hank, Judy Stone, and Donna Woodward and husband, Roger; as well as lots of special nieces and nephews. Other important people in Stub’s life include his mother-in-law, Mary Andrews, Carl Hanley, Marie Turcotte, Cliff and Tina Andrews, Dave and Judy Andrews, and Tom and Vicky Andrews.
