Brian Michael Stone passed away on October 16, 2018. Born December 26, 1987 in Brandon, FL, Brian graduated from Niceville High School and attended Northwest Florida State College.
Brian was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Bill McCullen and Terry Stone; he is survived by his parents, Kathi and Bill Stone; brother Terry Stone; grandmothers, Beverly McCullen and Nancy Stone; a child he loved as his own, Bailey Marie and his special niece Hayleigh Stone; his uncles Bruce McCullen and Kelly Stone, along with his Aunt Tracy Outzen; as well as many cousins and friends.
Brian was a man who loved life - if you were lucky enough to know him; you experienced that excitement and passion for life with and through him. Brian lived in Destin and was a bartender at Harbor Walk Village. Brian loved the beach lifestyle, and his love of Florida was a huge part of his life - he enjoyed all types of watersports and the beach. And, as a high school student, he was a gifted soccer player as well.
Brian will be remembered for that welcoming (and sometimes mischievous) smile - always happy to see his family and friends - and eager to include them in his life and adventures. A loving and caring man, he will be missed by many.
