March 21, 1933 — Aug. 13, 2015 Adrian G. Stone, 82, of Alsea died Thursday, Aug. 13, at the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center. Adrian was born in Corvallis to Henry and Amy Stone, and grew up and lived his life in Alsea. Drafted into the Army during the Korean War, PFC Adrian Stone proudly served his country from 1951 to 1953. When Adrian was 10 years old he pulled the pigtails of the little girl who sat in front of him on the bus. Thirteen years later, he married her. Adrian and Rozella Mae Bowen Stone were married on Sept. 20, 1956, in Tidewater, Oregon. Adrian worked for the Alsea Lumber Company after high school; then after his return from the military, he worked for the U.S. Forest Service where he retired after 28 years of service. Adrian was a much-loved, well-known member of the Alsea community. He was a member of the Alsea Christian Fellowship Church, and was a strong supporter of the Alsea School District and its sports programs. Most weekday mornings he could be found at Deb’s Café having coffee with his friends. Adrian loved to cook, and his baked goods were popular at church, school potlucks, and community fundraisers, especially his homemade doughnuts. Adrian loved his family and spent a great deal of his time with them. Every fall he would go hunting with his sons and wife. Adrian and Rosie were the sponsors and staunchest supporters of the Corvallis City League softball team Actively Resting. At one time Adrian and all three of his sons were members of Actively Resting. Adrian was preceded in death by his parents, and by his beloved grandson, Brandon Daniel Stone. He is survived by his wife, Rosie; and sons Kenneth Stone and wife Rhonda, Kevin Stone and Julie Bozzi, and Kurt Stone. He is also survived by his brother, Delmar Stone and wife Rose, along with two nephews and one niece; grandchildren Amy Stone, Cassi Shiell and Ryan, Heidi Stone, Aiden Stone and Cameron Stone; and five great-grandchildren. A public graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 20, at the Alsea Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alsea School District, the Alsea Clinic or to a charity of your choice.
