Brett Eugene “Doc” Stone

January 15, 2015

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of “Doc” 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 let’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 member of the First Church of the Nazarene in Poteau. To know Elly was to love her. She never met a stranger. She loved to talk and always had a joke to tell.

Her family takes comfort in knowing they are together again.
