Stanley Barton, a former Westport resident, died Oct. 8 in Casa de la Luz Hospice, Tucson, Ariz. after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He was 84.

A former longtime resident of Westport, he was born on Dec. 30, 1927 in Halesowen, Worcestershire, England. He graduated from Halesowen Grammar School and the University of Birmingham with a Ph.D. in chemical engineering.  He and his late wife, Marion, emigrated to Canada in 1953, where he worked for the Canadian Defense Establishment in Halifax, Nova Scotia developing coatings for Canadian Navy vessels. 

After a move to Ottawa, Ontario, he was employed by Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati at their Miami Valley Laboratory as a food chemist, and he completed his career with ITT and ITT Rayonier in the Natural Resources and Forest Products divisions both in New York City and Stamford.  He and his wife retired to Tucson in 1991.

His passion was music, and he reassembled and installed a 1927 Wurlitzer pipe organ from the Ward Avenue Theater in the Bronx, N.Y., in his basement in Westport, entertaining family and friends over the years. He was a former member of the Connecticut Valley Theater Organ Society. 

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Carolyn Barton Scholl and Robert P. Scholl of Middlebury, also former Westport residents, as well as his niece, Rita M. Harrold, of Wayne, N.J., and four step-grandchildren and their families. He was predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Marion Brittain Barton, and their daughter, Andrea.
