BLACKSTOCK, S.C. — Paul Wade Stanton, 56, of Blackstock, So. Carolina, was added to the book of life because of a tragic car accident. He now joins his true love, Betty Jean Stanton, our guardian angel, on Friday, Aug. 16, 2013.

Our father was born in Bridgton, Maine, July 24, 1957, the son of Clyde Stanton and Ruby McLaren. He had five siblings, Clyde Leslie Stanton, Donna Cash, Martha Storey, Bruce and Mathew Stanton. He was predeceased by father Clyde, mother Ruby, wife Betty, and sister Martha. He attended school at Oxford Hills.

The summer of 1974 he found his soul mate, Betty Jean, that is when they started their journey together. He had three children, Paul Stanton II, Krystal Johnson, and Kerri McQuaide; five grandchildren, Amber and Mackenzie McQuaide (Kerri's two daughters), Paul W. Stanton III and Lariah Stanton (his son Paul's two children), and last, but not least, Iver Paul Johnson (Krystal and Josh's baby boy).

He worked for Lucas Tree Experts 20 plus years, achieving many awards for his hard work and dedication. He spent most of his life living in Maine and N.H., enjoying the great outdoors with his family — camping trips, fishing and boating, and riding his Harley. He lived life to the fullest, enjoying everything God created. He was such a great guy. He would do anything for anyone. Carefree and fun-loving. He had a huge heart!

He and his wife moved to So. Carolina in 2007, and spent the rest of their years there. God granted him the gift to give, which he lived by. He was a believer in the Lord, guided by his wife Betty, mother Ruby and stepfather Gordon McLaren.

There was a small memorial service in Blackstock, So. Carolina at his home. There will be a graveside service at Woodland Cemetery on Hobb's Street in Effingham, N.H., at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013. Paul will be buried next to his wife, Betty. Both such beautiful people. They are now our guardian angels, looking over us from heaven and will be forever missed.
