John A Stone
September 23, 1936 - November 30, 2019
John A. Stone, Baptist Minister (retired) of Columbus, KS passed from this life to join the Lord in eternal life on November 30, 2019, at the age of 83.
John is survived by his loving wife Maggie; his sons Benjamin (Cindy), Eric (Missy), and Peter (Marika); his step-sons Mark (Kathy), Bruce (Olga), and Gary (Tuesday) and his 11 grandchildren.
John was born on September 23, 1936, in Paducah, KY. He graduated from high school from Castle Heights Military Academy in Lebanon, TN. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Sioux Falls College and went on to complete Seminary School in Kansas City, MO.
He was united in holy matrimony to his great love Maggie Arnes Stone on January 1, 1986. The newlywed couple moved to Kansas later that same year. John enjoyed glass cutting, gardening and attending auctions, but the thing he enjoyed most was preaching the word of the Lord.
John served many families through thoughtful prayer in numerous churches throughout the Midwest. John officially retired from preaching in January 2019, although he never stopped serving the Lord.
A funeral service will be held Saturday, December 7th at United Methodist Church at 11:00 AM.
