Edward D. Stone, Jr. – Colleague, Mentor, Partner and Advisor – But to all, he was a Friend.
Ed, in his typically unselfish way, wished memorial contributions be made to benefit his favorite charities, church, hospice and minorities.

His success story is unique in the profession of landscape architecture. His professional leadership over 50 years earned him the professions highest honor – The American Society of Landscape Architects Medal. He will be forever remembered for his enduring role as “Team Leader” in the internationally known firm he founded, with his stewardship of interdisciplinary design teams and the creation of many truly remarkable and memorable destinations that dot the globe.
