It is with sadden hearts to announce the passing of Joseph “Reid” Stone age 33, of Cascade, VA. Reid was born on October 26, 1989 in Greensboro, NC to Chuck and Teresa Odell Stone. After a long time of suffering Reid lost his battle to mental illness on Sunday, April 23, 2023.

Reid graduated Morehead High School in 2009. He was a simple yet hardworking man. His work boots were heavy and so was his heart. Reid enjoyed riding and working on his four wheelers. He also enjoyed working alongside his dad on their family farm, grilling out, spending time with his family and caring for his beloved dogs, Grazo and Bailey. Reid had the unique ability to make everyone smile, laugh and feel at ease. Reid loved his parents and loved and adored his little sister, Mary-Katherine.

Reid was such a wonderful, kind human being. He was so funny and boy did he give good hugs. He loved his family, especially Mary-Katherine. What a joy it was to have him and Chase come to our house in Greensboro for weekend stays and trips to the beach. He was a hard worker and would do anything to help out. We will miss him terribly. Rest in Peace, dear nephew. We love you.Lesa and Wally Vinson
Wishing you peace,comfort,courage and lots of love at this time. My heart goes out to you all.Michelle Roberts
I have so much that I could say about Ried, but there's not enough room. And you would be here a while reading it. So I will say these things. He was kind, funny, grateful, handsome, loving and just awesome to be around. He cared very much about the cnversations he had with you, and always had a kind word to say. He was innocent about things but never made you feel like you had it all. I haven't seen him in a while but I thought about him alot along with his brother Chase. His uncle James and I babysat for them when they were little. Such a great age to be around children. Even at our older ages they could make your feel so needed. We will miss him so much. I wish I had spent more time with him. We wastes too much time on other things that don't even hold a candle to the love they have for us. May God hold him in his arms and keep him safe. He is no longer suffering and is at peace with it all. Love you Chuck, Teresa & MK.vickie stone

I have so many memories with the Stone family.. my first encounter with Reid was in passing as he drove by me on his way to the shop on his four wheeler. He'd speak a few words here and there, but once getting to know each other over the years we had so many good laughs and memories. Chase and I would hang out sometimes down at the shop while he'd work on his four wheeler and just talk or we'd all get a good laugh in after dinner bc Reid would be waiting for my left over steak bc I could never eat it all. He was always trying to make us laugh but never wanted to offend anyone either. He was a thinker. His mind was always curious and so pure. Reid had such a gentle soul. The Stone family is forever etched into my heart and I'm so thankful for all the great memories I have bc of them and I'll always remember Reid as the hard working sweet soul that he was. I know Chase and him are living in peace in heaven. I continue to pray for the Stone family and pray the memories of the good days give you peace and bring joy. I love you all and I'm so thankful to have know Reid 💗Brittney Mostella
I had never met Reid or his brother, Chase but I am well aquanted with their mother, Teresa. She and I began school together many years ago but went separate ways after that.
A couple of years ago the Lord saw fit to rekindle our relationship. As she and I began to take up where our lives had left off, I was amazed at the storms and difficulties she and her family had struggled through. Some I knew of and others I learned of as we began to talk more and more as she would share about the loss of her Chase. I tried to sympathize with my dear friend never understanding how she had lived through this difficulties as a mother. Many times as we were talking I could hear Reid in the background telling her something or asking a question. As she would answer him I could tell they had a very special bond as she would with each of her children. But he was special.
My heart ached so for her, Chuck and her sweet girl MK as she called to tell me they had lost another precious child and brother. I'm sorry to say, I had no words of comfort for her. Though I certainly should have ( I work with those who have lost loved ones everyday). I guessed I had used all those words when I was told about the loss of Chase earlier and MK battling cancer in her teen years. The only words that come to my mind at this time are those spoken by The Lord when he gave us the promise of being together again one glorious day. I know in Teresa's heart and soul she longs for that Glad Reunion Day where no heartaches will ever come to us. My prayers continue to be with my strong and courageous friend as she tarries on toward that wonderful day when her family is together once again never to be parted. ♥️ Reid is now resting safe in the arms of God....
My dearest friends, Chuck, Teresa and Mary Katherine. Royal and I are so heartbroken over Reid's passing. We have wonderful memories of Reid. He was so polite, funny, even when he didn't know he was funny. Always by Chuck's side working around the farm. I can remember times when Teresa and I would be on the phone together and he would want to know who she was talking to. Teresa would say Hope and he always said "tell her I said hello. He had a sweet sweet spirit. He loved his four wheelers and was always working on one. Reid loved food and was always happy at the table. I've never met a kinder person than Reid. He will forever be in our thoughts. I know that he is with his Savior now and he is at peace. We share in this grief with you and love you all so much.. I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philiippians 4:13Hope & Royal Mullins
