Russell Ross Stone, 53, tragically lost his life in an 18-wheeler accident while saving another person’s life on January 15, 2021 in Macon County, Georgia.

Graveside service was held Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 3 p. m. at Ash Creek Cemetery in Azle with Rev. Wesley Shotwell lovingly officiating.

Pallbearers were Charlie Martin, Lynne Wilson Griffin, Brandon C. Reese, Kevin Mooney, Kenny Mooney, and Eddie Caraway.

Russell was born March 7, 1968 in Fort Worth, Texas to Roy Rosevelt and Delta Vondell (McAllister) Stone.

Russell spent his life serving others. Out of high school, Russell was distinctly recognized as the youngest paid firefighter in Tarrant County, Texas. Russell went on to become a commissioned peace officer. He served at Hillsboro Police Department and at Hill and Hood County Sheriff Departments. Russell also taught criminal justice at Hill College in Hillsboro.

Russell learned many of his life lessons following the footsteps of his loving father as a Boy Scout, earning the prestigious honor of Eagle Scout. Scouting taught Russell to honor God, his country and his fellow man. There are many that refer to him as their guardian angel because of his selfless Good Samaritan acts.

Those left behind to cherish his memory are his twin daughters, Kimberly Stone and Kelsey Stone; one grandson, his parents Roy and Dell Stone of Azle; his sister, Renata McGuire of Fort Worth, and numerous extended family and a host of friends.
