Frank Stone III

Frank R. Stone III, 83, of Oak Park, died on March 5, 2021. Born on July 30, 1937, he was a grain trader and 30-year member of the Chicago Board of Trade. His proudest endeavor was being a lifelong friend of Misericordia Heart of Mercy, which included serving on the board of directors, being the last surviving member of the original Misericordia Bums Golf Committee, and a most enthusiastic Candy Days volunteer. His greatest joy was his family.

Frank Stone was the husband of Susan (nee Finn); the father of Colleen Stone (Daniel) Funda, Frank “Boots” (Heather Noe), Shannon Stone (Sean) Kerrigan; the grandfather of Billy Stone; the brother of Lee (Joe) Wiewel and the late Dennis, Terrance and William (Louise) Stone; the uncle, cousin and friend of many; and son of the late Frank R. Jr. and Elizabeth Spillane Stone. 

Visitation was held on March 12 at Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home. A funeral Mass was celebrated on March 13 at St. Luke Church, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery.
