WOOLWICH -- Eugene Harold Stanton, of Woolwich, passed away May 17, 2010, at home, with his family by his side, after a struggle with cancer.

The son of Harold Trout Stanton Jr. and Glenda Wright, he was born in Bath on June 26, 1943. He graduated from Morse High School, class of 1961. Upon graduation, he joined the Navy and had a 20-year career, retiring at the rank of chief petty officer in 1980. Gene had an extensive military career including tours in Vietnam and the Mediterranean. He ended his naval career at the Pentagon, for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

He worked for Blue Cross/Blue Shield in Rochester, N.Y., as a systems analyst from 1980 to 1984. When the family moved back to Maine in 1984, Gene went to work for the state of Maine as a manager of Maine's hospital inpatient database, where he was known nationally for his pioneering work in health care reform. After 26 years of service, he retired May 1, 2010.

Gene is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Yvonne Galuza Stanton; his son, Deane Erick Stanton; daughter Tracy Melvina Stanton Nolon; daughter-in-law Amy Elizabeth Stanton; brothers Michael "Brock" Stanton, Daniel Stanton, Scott Stanton and Brian Stanton; sister Veda (Stanton) Ferris; and extensive family.

He was a wonderful family man who supported and cared deeply for his wife and children. He was deeply satisfied with his great life and adventures, but he will be greatly missed in our future adventures.

At the request of the family, in lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Woolwich Firefighters Association, c/o Deputy Chief of EMS Deane Stanton, 13 Nequasset Road, Woolwich, ME 04579, in Gene's memory.

A service will be held at 4 p.m. on June 5 at the West Bath Fire Department on State Road.

I am sorry for the loss of a great man. I only met Gene once but had many telephone conversations with him through my work at The Aroostook Medical Center. He was always so kind and helpful. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am sorry I missed the service. I worked with Gene at MHCFC. He was a great co-worker who introduced me to the music of "meatloaf". I am sorry I did get a chance to say good bye.
