  • Notes 
    • Wayne attended West and Granite High Schools, graduating from Granite. For the love of his country he served 22 years of active duty in the US Army. Wayne's military training led to his civilian career as a computer programmer for Salt Lake City Corporation.


      Wayne and his beloved companion and best friend, Lyn, did not let any "grass grow under their feet". They served two missions for the LDS Church and traveled many places in the US and the world. Wayne enjoyed taking pictures of all the places they visited.
      Wayne had a lifetime of service in the LDS Church and was a branch president in Germany, counselor in the presidency of the Stuttgart Germany Servicemen's Stake and bishop in Salt Lake. He always served in any capacity to which he was called.

      He was a dedicated and wonderful father and grandfather and leaves, in addition to his wife Lyn, two sons and two daughters: Roger Wayne Stanton, Julie (Randy) Basham, Gayle (Steve) Greene, and David Andrew (Valerie) Stanton; 12 grandchildren; sister Marilyn (Kaye) Nelson of Hurricane, Utah and brother David (Ginger) Stanton of Fayetteville, Arkansas.

      Thanks to the IHC Hospice nurses and other caregivers for their kindness and care to Wayne as his life ebbed away. Thanks also to many friends and neighbors for their love and support. We, his family and friends, will miss his wonderful sense of humor, imagination and creativity. He was a gentle soul and loved by all those whose life he touched.

      A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. in the Hurricane 13th Ward, 452 N. 2600 W. in Hurricane, Utah. Interment with military honors will be Monday Feb. 12, 2007 at the Utah Veterans Memorial Park in Bluffdale, Utah.
