"STONE, Friday, 05/30/2003, Houston Chronicle, Section A, Page 3. On Monday, May 26, CLAYTON TED STONE, 69, of Rosanky, Texas, started on his long journey home, after a brave battle with cancer. His is survived by his wife Murray, three children, four grandchildren, and many, many friends. We will miss you. Clayton was born in Rio Grande City in 1934, son of Faye and Ted Stone. He graduated from McAllen High School (1951) and Rice University (1955). Mentor and role model for many, his achievements in the workplace have included key participation in the development of the JPMorganChase Tower, and many other real estate development projects in Houston, Minneapolis, Denver, and Aspen, with [Gerald] Hines. A loving father and husband, his passions were backpacking and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. He was considered a legendary teller of jokes, and in later years, he gathered a respectable collection of art and music of which he was quite proud. Clayton enjoyed learning -- gaining new knowledge, taking on new adventures, and above all, learning about people. A rosary will be said for Clayton at the Marrs-Jones Funeral Home in Smithville, on the evening of Wednesday, May 28. He will be buried at St. Mary's Catholic Church Cemetery in String Prairie on Thursday morning after a simple service for family, closest friends and parishioners. All are invited to a Memorial Service followed by a reception in his honor to celebrate and give thanks for his life, in Houston, at Rice University, the Alice Pratt Brown Hall on Friday, May 30, 2003 at 7:00 p.m. The Hall can be reached from Entrance 8 off of University Boulevard or Entrance 12 off of Rice Boulevard.
