Claudia , Gary & Family ….
My memories of Tom go back to over 60 yrs ago
while growing up on Forest Rd. .. My Brothers and I
had great respect for Tom as he was always a man
who was confident . reliable and fearless ..
I got to know Tom much better when he was looking for people to join the formation of a Housing Group .. Under Tom’s leadership we formed the Apollo Housing Co- operative Society
Limited on January 26 , 1971 and thanks to Tom …
our membership co- operatively constructed
nine[ 9 ] family bungalows [ homes ] in the
then new Confederation Heights. [ Macdonald Dr.]
Area .. What a wonderful feeling all of us felt ..
moving into our new homes … All because of
Tom Stone’s initiative ..and determination to
succeed .. especially with so many people saying
it couldn’t be done .. We bless the day he came
along … Tom’s Apollo Model became a standard
for others .. Thank You Tom ..
May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You and
Your Family …..

So sad to learn of Mr Stone’s passing. Please accept my sincere sympathy.
I knew Tom from our days of working together in the furniture dept. at Sears. From the time I first met him, I found him to be a genuine “gentleman”, he was my mentor, manager and friend, always ready and willing to help me while learning. I had great respect for him.
May God bless you all in the difficult days ahead bringing you comfort and peace, and may his gentle soul rest in peace.

Gary we are thinking of you and your family at this time. We will keep you all in our prayers.

Mrs. Stone, Gary and Family
