Larry Don Stanton

April 15, 1951 — October 5, 2018

CORINTH — Larry Don Stanton, 67, of Lemont Avenue, passed away Friday, Oct. 5, 2018 at his home, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born on April 15, 1951, Larry was the son of the late Donald and Helen Stanton.

After graduating from Corinth High School in 1969 and earning his bachelor’s degree in business, Larry enjoyed a successful career in manufacturing management at Ball Manufacturing for 18 years; at Cargill, Inc., in Memphis, Tennessee for seven years; and most recently Cushman-Wakefield in Memphis and in New York, until his retirement in 2016.

He married Teri L. LeClair on Oct. 12, 1973 in Corinth. The couple has resided in Tampa, Florida, Broomfield, Colorado, Atlanta, Georgia, Sarah, Mississippi, and currently in Corinth.

Larry was a hard worker, both at his workplace and his home. He particularly enjoyed working on his little farm in Mississippi and spending time with family and friends. He also enjoyed playing golf, camping, and going on road trips, especially to the ocean.

Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Teri (LeClair) Stanton of Corinth; two children, Jessica (Stanton) Redding (Kevin) of Sarah, Mississippi, and Ryan Stanton of Hernando, Mississippi; five grandchildren, Adrianne, Zoe, Ayden, Kora and Ivy; three step-grandchildren, Jacob, Dakota and Gracie; seven siblings, Steven Stanton (Christine) of Leland, North Carolina, Nancy Coffin of Ballston Spa, Michael Stanton (Sharon) of Greenfield Center, Donna Stanton of Greenfield Center, Debbie Stanton of Greenfield Center, Donald Stanton (Quinny) of Corinth and Edward Stanton (Wanda) of Corinth; and many nieces and nephews.

Heartfelt thanks go out to Aqeel Gillani, MD, FACP and Elizabeth Reinhardt, PA-C, and staff at CR Wood Cancer Center; Renuka Iyer, MD and staff at Roswell Park Cancer Institute; Saratoga County Community Hospice; Visiting Nurse Association Home Health; and the excellent staff at Rite Aid/Walgreens in Corinth.

Larry’s wish was to donate his body to medical science as an anatomical gift, and that is his final, ultimate selfless act. The family is entrusting Larry to Albany Medical College.

At Larry’s request, there are no calling hours or services.

A celebration of Larry’s life will be held at an undetermined future date.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Densmore Funeral Home Inc., 7 Sherman Ave., Corinth.
