Richard Lee Stone “Gee” 92, of Fellowsville, passed away on Friday, July 7, 2023, surrounded by loved ones on his farm. He was born on March 2, 1931 in Newburg, WV, the son of the late Alva and Mittie (Wolfe) Stone. Richard was a coal miner of 32 years and retired from Badger Coal Company in Philippi, WV.
