I remember when Bill stole Donna's heart. We nick named him "Bay Guardian Bill". He was a free spirit, interested in everything and brilliant, especially within his medical field... just the right man for her. He encouraged her to continually expand her horizons, including getting her doctorate. She could not have had a more supporting, loving husband. He was fun and entertaining to be with ... we had the opportunity to celebrate many key moments in our lives...his 70th & my husband's 90th birthdays are among the many wonderful evenings. He is, we are sure, already deep into discussion with his fellow spirits about some theory to improve the world or the human race. Bill never stopped, nor would we expect him to now! We will miss Bill, as will all of his family and friends. Shalom. Dona & Bud Fuller

Some children are previews of what they'll be as adults. Not Bill. For years, when we were in elementary school, we saw each other almost daily, usually at the Stanton house filled with kids. He welcomed me, as the newcomer to the school and the street, immediately, and soon thereafter his mother volunteered to be the den mother for our new cub scout group. By junior high school he seemed to be getting a little restless and in high school he was eager to spread out. Then I didn't see him for ten years, and all of a sudden here was my old friend talking about going to Africa and creating careers of great imagination. It was about 30 years before we met again, for dinner in San Francisco. Our wives were tolerant, but surely bored, as we tried to fit our mature lives back into that youthful context. He told me about his brothers and sister, we talked about his parents (always very kind to me), and I was amazed at the things he had done. We tried to get together again, but schedules didn't match up. So I'll be content with memories of the kind of childhood friend you are lucky to have and you just don't forget.

I am sharing memories of Bill Stanton from classmates who remember him from his childhood. How special is that?
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Donna & Family, How can you summarize 75 years of life in a few sentences? The answer is that you cannot; however, you have experiences with Bill, Dad, Grandfather, and Friend that translate into memories that will last a lifetime and that will always be with you. I want to share with you a few of my memories. Learning at graduation from Pasteur Junior High School that "Bill" was Llewellyn Franklin Stanton Junior!! In the 10th grade at Hamilton High School we were members of the Centaurs, a social service club that did more social than service. Seeing Bill at my home in Palos Verdes for the first time after his return from Africa with long blond hair and a flowing beard that looked like Jesus. Seeing Bill at a high school reunion, maybe the 20th, and his never wanting to attend another one. And of course visiting Bill in Kensington going on our field trips to UC Berkeley, the Buddist Temple, the Jelly Belly Factory, lunch and reminiscing about the good old days. No one can know your grief as they are not you; however cherish your memories as I do. With Love, Mel Lewin
