Stanley Clements Toone was welcomed into this world by his loving parents Clem and Mina Toone in Murray Utah on February 28, 1931. These were the early years of the Great Depression, so the young Toone family had to work hard, work smart, and work together to make ends meet.
They obtained a farm in Magna where Stan worked alongside his parents, one sister and four brothers to keep the family sheltered, clothed and fed. He was especially skilled with handling the horses on the farm. Stan had a favorite horse named Champ who was particularly spirited. For this reason, no one else was readily willing to ride Champ, but Stan was capable and had skills to be proud of. He also had a beloved dog named Trixie.
As a young man, Stan attended Cyprus High School. During these years, his brother Ross was injured playing football and later developed osteomyelitis from the injury. This caused Ross to require a wheelchair to get around, and eventually become bed bound.
Stan was attentive and helpful to his beloved brother, and he was deeply saddened at Ross’s death. Stan served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints to Nebraska. He remembered his mission as one of his greatest accomplishments in life of which he was proud. After returning home from his mission, Stan married Sharon Abbot, and
they had three kids: Doug, Ruth and Charles. He loved them dearly. Stan was affectionate and had a sense of humor. He was always ready for a hug and a laugh!
Stan loved to dress up as Santa Clause to make the children laugh and get excited at Christmas time. He had a generous heart that was open to all!
His years here at Rocky Mountain Assisted Living were happy and comfortable. Stan appreciated the care he received and the friendships that were given to him. How grateful we are, as his extended family, that he has been here in this caring, supportive, nurturing setting!
