Fred W. Stone (1906-1969) was a Mormon missionary in Tonga.
Fred Wells Stone was born on December 3, 1906 in Salem, Utah to David Augustin Stone and Aurelia May Jackson. The family later moved to Spanish Fork, Utah and then Aberdeen, Idaho. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Stone served a mission to Tonga as a young man. After his return he married Sylvia Mary Rider on December 12, 1929 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and they had three children. Stone and his family subsequently relocated to Stockton, California, and he began working in retail. In 1955 he received a call from the Church to serve as mission president in Tonga, serving until 1959. Stone died on January 24, 1969 in Oakland, California.
