Chris passed away in January at age 42 in his Reno, Nev., home. He is survived by his father, J. Michael Stone of Incline Village, Nev., his mother, Harriet I. Stone of Rio Vista, CA and his brother, Scott Stone of Piedmont, CA.
Chris graduated from Miramonte High School in Moraga, Calif., and received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from USC in Los Angeles, Calif. His love of computers began at a young age at the dawn of the personal computer, and his entire career was involved in software development. He had other areas of interest, including economics, politics, health and fitness; all of which he pursued with great enthusiasm and involvement.
He loved the Lake Tahoe area and provided free software development services to organizations which support preservation of the lake and surrounding area. Memories of his life will never fade from our hearts and minds.
