Roy G. Stone

December 9, 1934 — November 3, 2015

Roy G. Stone, 80, of Jaffrey died suddenly at his home with his wife by his side on Tuesday, November 3, 2015. He was born on December 9, 1934 in Pepperell, MA, son of the late Arthur and Olive (Wright) Stone. Roy was raised in Winchendon, MA and was a 1952 graduate of Murdock High School.

Roy began working in Jaffrey at the First National Store and soon met and married Nancy Ryan. They did everything together in life. They opened Roy’s Bike Shop which evolved into Roy’s Bike & Photo Shop, and more recently has been known as Roy’s Custom Framing. They had operated the business in the former Park Theater building and will always be remembered for preserving the history within the theater. Roy had also been very active in the Jaffrey community with BSA Troop 33 and served on the Town’s Budget Committee for many years.

He enjoyed photography, as well as travelling, camping and volleyball, and would drive to Florida each winter with his wife by his side trying to escape the colder weather. Roy would spend time each summer sailing on Lake Monomonac and loved growing his own vegetables in the greenhouse he designed.

Roy is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Nancy, of Jaffrey; his son Steven R. Stone and his husband Petrich W. Tolliver of Richmond, VA, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends. He was predeceased by his 2 sisters, Mildred Perry in 2012 and Ruth Brissette on February 22, 2015.
