Leslie Stone, III, affectionately known as “Juke” was born to the late Leslie & Vernice Stone, Sr, on November 2, 1945, in Greenville, Al. Leslie earned his wings in a peaceful transition surrounded by his family at the home of his daughter and son-in-law. He was preceded in death by his siblings: Annie Jewel Stone Randolph and Les Stone, Jr.

A 1964 graduate of Mobile County Training School, Leslie attended Bishop State Community College and Century College. He served in the US Army and also played semi-pro baseball while stationed in Frankfurt, Germany. Upon his military departure, Leslie joined his father with employment at Alcoa Aluminum Steel. Upon Alcoa’s closing, Leslie continued in industry and retired with Arkema Chemical. Founder and Owner of Independent Welding for nearly 50 years, Juke was known throughout the Gulf Coast as the “iron and burglar bar man” and took great pride in his work and business. He was also a barbecue grill master!

A loving man of the Lord, and his family, Leslie married the love of his life, Rose Mary on August 21, 1965. To their union, they share the joys of their devoted children and their families: Chante’ (Plez.) Hendrix, Sr; and Leslie Bernard (Jasmine) Stone, Sr; and grandchildren: Plez, Jr., Olivia Paige; Bernard, Jr., Deavon, Nyla Brooks, Logan Maria, and Dylan; and one great-grand, Deavon, Jr. Juke is also survived by his loving sister: Margaret Ann Powell and her family, Niagara Falls, New York, a host of sisters and brothers-in-law, and his god-children: Davida Glover Cunningham, Alana Carter, and Novia Williams. To cherish his memory are many special nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends (very devoted friends: Rev. Norvel Glover, Vincent Portis, Dwight Bell, and Rev. Reginald Franklin); and his Alcoa, Arkema, and Mobile County Training School Buddies.

A member of First Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, Leslie was passionate about his service. He served as Board of Trustee Chairman Emeritus; a member of the Male Chorus, and a steward in the church maintenance and dining services where he eagerly prepared complimentary meals during special occasions. Leslie was also a former Board Member of Azalea City Federal Credit Union. Juke was full of humor and gave laughter to all he came in contact with. His jovial nature was also filled with “helping people” as he believed “giving to others” was important. Juke loved time with his family, listening to music and his favorite Christmas Carols would entertain his family throughout the year! A man with big heart, Juke had a solid work ethic and enjoyed working, fishing, and golf and bowling tournaments. He was a huge sports fan and favored the New Orleans Saints, The Atlanta Braves and Auburn University. He had many infamous sayings, but the one that echoed the most was his faith that “God Takes Care of Me”. To God Be All Glory!

Juke was the only guy who was my "brother" although he was not my blood brother, and my friend, Mary Lee's husband. Condolences.
