Following Stone’s emotional tribute to her late brother, fellow celebrities and fans alike took to her post to offer their condolences.

Fellow actress Milla Jovovich shared that her thoughts were with Stone’s family.

Academy Award winner Hilary Swank also offered her “deepest condolences” to Stone’s “entire family”.

“Godspeed Patrick, and deepest condolences to you and your entire family,” Swank said.

“I love you you so much. Sending love to you and Kelly, mom and whole family,” another wrote.

Partick’s wife, Tasha Stone, also previously spoke of the devastating news on social media, revealing the she now feels lost without her “best friend”.

“My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River around 3:30 this morning,” Tasha began.

“He gave me 3 beautiful children that he loved and adored.

“He made sure to make it a point to let me know how much he loved me and how much I meant to him… I knew the very first day that I saw him that I was going to marry him. I felt an immediate connection to him and for 20 years we drove each other absolutely crazy but we also loved each other so deeply.

“I feel lost without my best friend. I wanted a lifetime with him and even though 20 years is a long time it wasn’t enough time. He was my soul mate.

“I’m not sure what life is supposed to look like without my husband by my side and quite honestly I don’t want to, but I will of coarse.”

“Go hunting and fishing everyday. That’s where you always felt safest and closest to God. I’m not ready and I don’t want to say goodbye. I want to do this life with you. I’ll always love you,” she concluded.

Patrick’s passing comes nearly two years after the death of his son, River, who died on August 2021 due to total organ failure, he was only 11 months old.

Patrick is survived by his wife Tasha and their children Kaylee and Hunter.
