Maine Game Warden Rick Stone
Augusta, Maine - It is with deep sadness the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife marks the passing of Game Warden Rick Stone. Rick lost his battle with cancer today at the age of 53.
Rick began his career as a game warden in February of 1986 and patrolled the Lewiston area out of District A. He was the longest-serving member of the Warden Service Dive Team and had a true passion for the outdoors. His attention to detail, his commitment to evidence control, and his work in law development will always be remembered. In addition, his work on the 132-year history of the Warden Service and its chronological order will be among his many legacies. Among his many professional awards was Game Warden of the Year for 2001.
The Warden Service was second only to the love Rick had for his family – wife Cindy, and his six children – Isaac, Rebekah, Samuel, Nicholas, Kyle and Chris.
“Rick Stone was an exceptionally dedicated Maine Game Warden who served our State and its resources with dignity and pride. He was a compassionate gentleman who loved his family and his life. My prayers go out to his family, friends, the Warden Service and the Department,” said Chandler Woodcock, Commissioner of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
Col. Joel Wilkinson, Maine’s Chief Game Warden, says, “Rick will be deeply missed but his work, character and impact on the communities he served and those he saved and returned home will live on through all of us. The qualities that made him a good husband, a good father and a good person made him a great Game Warden.”
