Sharon’s sister, Kelly Stone, shared a post on Instagram which included four photos to commemorate the life of her late brother.
Patrick is survived by his wife, Tasha Stone, a daughter, Kaylee Stone, and a son, Hunter Stone. The loss of Tasha’s husband came only a month and a half after she and Patrick lost their youngest son, River. Tasha revealed the news by saying her entire world has shifted. She commented:
“My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River. I just hope that you always stay by my side watching over Hunter, Kaylee and I.”

How Did Sharon’s Infant Nephew Die a Year and a Half Ago?
In 2022, the Stone family welcomed baby River. The entire family was ecstatic about the birth of the new family member, and Sharon marked the occasion by making a post on Instagram. The story showed an image of the newly born baby with a proud caption welcoming the little one to the world:
“Welcome to my nephew and Godson; River William Stone.”

The actress asked for support and prayers from her fanbase. The caption read:
“My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib w total organ failure today. Please pray for him. We need a miracle???.”
