Roger Allen Stone, Jr. passed away March 5, 2022 at the age of 42. He was born October 17, 1979 in Selma, Alabama.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Janet Stone and aunt, Barbara Barlow.
He is survived by his parents, Roger and Jackie Stone of Selma; grandfather, James Howell Stone of Perry County; grandparents, Nelson and Nell Barnett of Daphne; brothers, Ryan (Meredith) Stone of Selma and Wesley (Arlene) Stone of Prattville; niece, Avery Ryan Stone and nephews, CarterRay Stone and Grayson Arthur Stone; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of friends.
Roger had four major loves in his life: his family, his dog and best friend Whiskey, golf and the Auburn Tigers. To know Roger, was to love Roger. And those who knew him best, simply called him Allen. Although he would answer to both Roger and Allen, his favorite name to be called was Uncle Allen. He was a true child at heart and loved spending time and playing with his niece and nephews.
Roger was unapologetically loud; his laugh was contagious and could fill up a room. The only thing bigger than his laugh and his smile was his heart. He loved big and he was fiercely protective of those he loved. He enjoyed spending time around those he loved the most: his dog Whiskey, his large family, and his friends. Roger worked hard but played harder. He was an avid golfer and was happiest spending his off days playing alongside his best buddies. When he wasn’t on the golf course, he chose to spend his time cooking out with family and cheering on his beloved Auburn Tigers.
Roger was loyal and honest and those who knew him best know that he was never one to talk about anyone behind their back; he would tell you to your face! He never left anything unsaid, and made sure to let those in his life know how much he loved them.
