On December 8, 2020, Stanley Elwood Dalton ,93, returned to his heavenly home and was joyfully reunited with his loving wife, Lahoma Griffin Dalton.
Stan was born October 7, 1927 in Circleville, Utah to Robert Elwood and Eva Norton Dalton. He was the oldest of 5 children.
Stan married Lahoma Griffin December 10, 1946 in the Manti Temple. They were happily married for 69 years and were the loving parents of 7 children: Diana, Kay, Robert, Norlen, Doniece, LaRaine and Kevin.
Three weeks after they were married Stan left to serve a two year mission in California for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. His life was dedicated to the church and he served in many callings including Scout Master at the age of 16, Bishop, Stake President, Patriarch, and a Sealer in the St. George Temple.
He lived what he believed. He was truly kind, caring, generous and would go out of his way to make you feel welcome. He was a dear friend to everyone he met. As a friend said, “He truly lead a life like our Savior and will be welcomed home with honors”.
Stan began working early in his life on his dad’s farm. He later drove truck and hauled milk from several towns in Southern Utah to the creamery in Monroe and in Beaver. Then he settled closer to home and bought the general store in Circleville which has become, and still is, the famous Stan’s Merc. While owning the store he also spent many more years driving truck.
He also served as Justice of the Peace and was a Member of the Board at Garfield Memorial. He loved being a weather man and reported daily to KSL weather, putting Circleville weather on the daily news.
Stan is survived by his children: Kay and Glenda Dalton, Robert and Sue Dalton, Norlen and Mindy Dalton, Doniece and Larry Bergren, LaRaine and Merril Davis, Kevin Dalton, and son-in-law Charles Fox; 33 grandchildren; 49 great grandchildren and one on the way; one great great grandchild on the way; brother Delos and his sister Tressa.
He is Preceded in death by his parents, Elwood and Eva Dalton, sisters, Arla (Dick) Westwood and Jean (George) Whitlock, and sister-in-law Jeanene Dalton, daughter, Diana Fox, daughter-in-law, Stacy Dalton, grandchildren, Cory Dalton; Wendal Fox; Travis, Trever, Holli and Heidi Bergren.
A private family service will be held on December 17, 2020 at the Circleville Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like to suggest donating to the missionary fund for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or any other worthy cause.

Stan Dalton was and is a very dear friend. We had a really great time visiting, laughing and sharing very special spiritual experiences for many years. I looked forward to our visits whereever and whenever: at the store, in church, you name it. He was always caring and warm with all around him. His was one of my favorite people. I am very happy for him and know that his family will be taken care of by him and all of those comfort angels around him.. My prayers are for the family that they will feel the peace that Heavenly Father offers them in this life with mourning and life in general. I have been a widow for 24 years and have learned a lot about these things. God bless you Stans's family and friends. Sincerely, Linda Ipson Hughes

Stan was such a wonderful influence in my life as I was growing up. From being my Bishop to my Stake President he was always a great example to me. He always made me fill so welcome in his store and in his home. He will always be counted as one if the great men in my life. Russel and Paula Dalton

Dear Family, We knew Stan when we lived in Circleville from 1970 to 1973. He was our wonderful stake president. We remember him as a kind, gentle, faith-filled leader who loved us all. I remember one Sunday during the deer hunt. My husband and your dear father/grandfather were the only males in church that day! We often shopped at Stan's Merc. My husband Dan would say, "If you can't find it at Stan's Merc, you don't need it." When my husband served in the St. George Temple Presidency and was the Cedar City Temple President, we occasionally spoke at Panguitch Stake Conferences. We had the pleasure of being with your beloved father/grandfather. He remembered us and greeted us with love. May you all find peace and comfort as you await the glorious reunion you will have with him. Sincerely, Dan & JoAnn Jones

He has been our home teacher/minister for many years. He usually called weekly and we looked forward to his calls. We had wonderful and fun conversations. He visited our home at least once a month.You couldn’t help love him. He was a giant of a spiritual man. His heart was golden. I wish we’d known him even longer and we are grateful for the time that we had with him.
