Sharon Stone’s younger brother, Patrick Stone, has passed away at the age of 57. A representative from the reporting coroner’s office said his death, “is being ruled as a sudden cardiac death due to heart disease.”
This comes after a previous tragedy for the Stone family on August 30, 2021, when Patrick’s 11-month-old son, River, passed away. River experienced total organ failure, before his untimely passing.
At the time, Stone told People that she was able to take solace in the fact that River was able to help others, stating, “The fact that my godson was able to save three lives, two infants and a 45-year-old man, was a sanctuary for our family. I can only say that you never, never know when a tragedy will happen in your life or in your family, but this opportunity to be an organ donor, it saved us, saved our family.”
Patrick’s widow, Tasha Stone wrote, of both passings,
“My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River … I don’t know what else to say, he was my world. I’m not sure what life is supposed to look like without my husband by my side and quite honestly I don’t want to, but I will of course,” Tasha continued. “Until we meet again I will forever hold you and our wonderful (and some not so wonderful but just as important) memories close to my heart and will visit those memories always.”
Our deepest sympathies and condolences go out to the Stone family.
