Gerald Stone loved a great story but he loved people even more.
He had a clear-eyed view of the world with all its epic tragedy but he reminded everyone around him of how to find the best in other human beings. In the decade I worked closely with Gerald I witnessed his morality, his sense of fairness and a heart felt concern for how we treated people.
The spirit he inspired was his lasting legacy. His soul mate, Irene and his children and grandchildren should know that so many of us will always remember him at his best and brightest.

Sad to hear about the death of Gerald Stone. Part of television history. I was with Nine when 60 Minutes started. It was a great time to be in the industry.

Vale Gerald Stone.
