William Reid Stanton Jr. (Bill or Butch), 81, passed away April 1st 2021, at his home in Calvert county with his loving wife by his side. Mr. Stanton was born February 24 1940 to Gwendolyn and William Stanton Sr.
Bill had a profound passion for character, duty, and family. Whenever possible he made a point to spend time with his family, especially his 3 grandchildren. He was always happy to offer his home and resources for a holiday, a family vacation, or even a dinner. And over the years he enthusiastically attended every school event, milestone moment, and local visit from any of his family. When he wasn’t spending time directly with family, he became incredibly involved in his church and in his local community. It was there where he, among many other services, most notably helped build a new homeless shelter which helped reshape the lives of many. Bill touched the masses in more ways than anyone could have ever imagined
He is survived by his wife, Janice Stanton; his 2 sons and their spouses, J. Troy and Maggie Stanton, and Douglas and Crystal Stanton; his grandchildren, William Kane Stanton, Garrett Stanton, Maddi Stanton and her husband William Johnson; and an entire clan of extended family.
A funeral mass was held through his beloved church, St. John Vianney, attended by close family and friends.
