Jim Stone

Think, for a moment, about the title “community band.” Both words in the title indicate a fellowship. The fellowship experienced by our community band is diverse, but the common element is a love for music. As in any fellowship, we succeed together, fail together, experience joy together, and experience loss together. On Friday, January 22nd, we lost one of our active long-time members—Jim Stone—a proud member of our trumpet section. Remembered for his kindness, his generosity in time and spirit, and for his love of making music, we celebrate his life and his manifold contributions toward our community and, in particular, our community band. He strengthened our fellowship. For that we honor and thank him.

Visitation is Friday from 5 to 7 pm with a Memorial Service at 7 pm. at Milward’s on Trent Blvd. in Lexington.
