Henderson Edward Stockton
Henderson "ED" Stockton, 89, passed away on Friday August 12, 2016 at Gasconade Manor Nursing Home in Owensville Missouri.

We believe; on a bright sunny day, May 11, 1927 a baby boy was born to Maymie and Albert (Dube) Stockton. He was given the name of Henderson Edward but most folks just called him Ed. He was a lifelong resident of the Belle-Bland area. He was raised with five siblings on the 200 year family farm and attended eight years at the Grovedale Country School. He served in the US Army from 1944-1946 where he was an M.P. as well as helped to rebuild war torn towns in the Alps Mountains, rebuild city streets, churches and schools, His home base was one of Hitlers Youth Camps.

After returning home, he married Lorna Smith, daughter of Murl and Mae Smith on April 10, 1948. To this union were five children, three boys and two girls. Ed was a lifelong farmer and worked for Yamnitz Concrete, the Brown Shoe Co., O'Sullivan Industry, Lorts Supermarket, Schaeperkoetter Meats, Thriftway Grocery and for Aprox. 25 yrs, Ed and wife Lorna were Co-Owners (with Brother-In-Law Dwight "Moody" and wife Dorothy Smith) of S&S Packing Co of Bland. Ed was a member of Liberty Church of Christ Church of Belle and attended as long as his health allowed. Ed was a 60 year plus member of the Belle Masonic Lodge.

Ed really didn't have hobbies, he just wanted to work and help others in any way he could. He touched many lives, loved his family and friends. He was the incubator of many stories, some may have touched you.
