Dennis Stanton was an outgoing, opinionated man who was devoted to his wife, children and grandchildren, said his son, Terry Stanton.
“He was always supportive of us and our interests and hobbies, and he absolutely adored his wife,” Terry Stanton said. “He was a good Dad. He was 100 percent supportive, and always gave us his honest opinion, even if it wasn’t what we wanted to hear.”
Dennis Stanton, 77, of Schererville and formerly of Glen Park and Crown Point, died Oct. 29. He had been a judge for Crown Point and a practicing attorney. He was a member of the Indiana Bar Association.
He is survived by his wife, Jessica Stanton.
Stanton loved to travel, especially to Korea, where his wife had family.
He also loved to play golf, despite the fact he wasn’t very good at it. A Notre Dame graduate, he loved to watch Notre Dame football.
He loved his career as an attorney, and really enjoyed going to trial, his son said.
“He would try to resolve cases prior to trial, but he loved the debate and arguing cases,” his son said. “He enjoyed proving right or wrong. He enjoyed proving facts, not basing opinions on speculation.”
Terry Stanton said he admired his father for the values he passed on to his family.
“He taught us to work hard and be honest,” he said. “He taught us to give 100 percent and to never give up.”
