It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of â€śDocâ€ť Stone, 54, of Poteau.
Doc was born on April 9,1960, in Tulsa to Jan and Gene Stone. He was given the birth name of Brett Eugene Stone, but letâ€™s face it, the only people who ever called him that were his mom, the IRS and his wife when he made a mess trying to cook up the best pulled pork you have ever tasted. Doc was arguably the best chiropractor our bones have ever met.

She was a wonderful cook and had a reputation far and wide for her amazing homemade pies, bread, donuts and cookies. Elly had a great love for her family and missed Buck terribly.
