After playing in the Toronto Argonauts farm system, Stoneburgh joined the big team in 1955 and played his entire 13-year career with them as a center.[1][2] Stoneburgh first made CFL east all-star in 1958. Although he fractured a leg in 1959 and did not play a single game, he came back strong with CFL east all-star nominations in 1960 and 1961. He suffered another serious setback in the 1962 pre-season by being hit with a golf ball in the eye.[3] Nevertheless, he played in 10 games. For the next 5 years, the football veteran played all 14 games of the regular season 4 times and became a CFL all-star in 1965.

Following his retirement he volunteered his time at Evangel Hall in Toronto, Ontario. He died on October 24, 2019 at age 84.[4]
