John Earl Stanton
9/3/1941 - 11/8/1995
John passed away in 1995 after a brave battle with cancer. He was married to his college sweetheart, Donna, for 30 years and had two lovely daughters. John had a successful career as an executive and ran for public office, winning his party's nomination. At the end of his life he managed a ranch in the hills above Santa Barbara, fulfilling his life's dream of being a cowboy. He published a book of cowboy poetry and even received word from Roy Rogers that he had read the book. The name John means a gift from God, and he truly was. He is greatly missed.
