He was a good-hearted man who loved wolves and loved to read. If his head wasn't in a book, he was playing video games or on his phone playing a game. His most cherished moments were with his daughter, Claudette. Their eyes would light up when they saw each other. Both had the same cheesy smile. He was known for his hearty laugh, big smile and kind heart. He wasn't afraid to talk to new people and, therefore, made many friends, both young and old.

He is survived by his grandmothers, Melissa White Eagle Cantrell of Wolf Point and JoAnne White Eagle of Poplar; his father, Wilbur (Paula) Medicine Stone of Halliday, N.D.; mother, Della (Phillip) Pipestem of Red Rock, Okla.; sisters, Melissa Medicine Stone of Wolf Point, Mattie (Cody) Medicine Stone of Fort Totten, N.D.; brothers, Adrian Pipestem, Phillip Pipestem Jr. and Stephen Pipestem of Red Rock, Verle Pipestem of Ponca City, Okla., Wilbur Medicine Stone, David Medicine Stone, Manuel Medicine Stone and Bryce Medicine Stone of Fort Totten; and his pride and joy, his only daughter, Claudette Shivley of Fargo, N.D. He is also survived by friends and relatives too numerous to mention.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents Allen and Mirriam (Bull) Medicine Stone and Courtney R. Cantrell Sr.; uncles Durwin Medicine Stone, Allen (Butch) Medicine Stone, Verle "Muscles" Cantrell, Rueben Castro Cantrell; cousin Jeremy Stiffarm and niece Aubrey Medicine Stone.

There will be a wake service Thursday, March 7, at 7 p.m. and funeral services at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 8, at the Wolf Point Community Hall. Pastor Danny Lindsay will be officiating. Burial will be in the Medicine Stone Cemetery in Twin Buttes, N.D.
