Dean Stone retired in December, 2015, after 66 years with The Daily Times. He continued to contribute after his retirement. I knew something was wrong when his byline wasn't showing up anymore.

I remember attending the 125th anniversary of The Daily Times, which was also a celebration of Dean Stone's 84th birthday.

Dean Stone passed away yesterday at the age of 92.

I (R. Neal) can attest from our personal experience with him that Dean Stone is tough but fair, and one of the nicest people you could ever want to meet.

For example, he personally approves every letter to the editor that gets published. And they must be printed on paper, and mailed or hand delivered (which we have done on occasion). He does not accept email submissions.

Dean Stone will be missed but he will not be forgotten for his contributions to our community.
