He is also survived by his sisters, Janet Stayton of Pietrasanta, Italy, and Jeanne Middleton of The Woodlands, Texas. He is also survived by his grandson, Riley Stayton. A host of other loving extended family and friends also survive, including Rick and Rhonda Logan and other caregivers at Logan's Run Senior Living in Burleson, Texas.

I am so saddened to read of Bill's passing. I cut his hair for more than 20 yrs and enjoyed so many of his life's stories. We laughed a lot. My condolences to Jeff & Matt, I will always remember your father. RIP my friend.

Stayton family , so sorry for your loss of your loved one.When we moved to Rivershire in 1978 we met Bubba and Linda a few years later. We had a block outside party on South Rivershire st. Bubba was funny and likeable. We lived 4 houses down from the Staytons . Lots of good memories in Rivershire. He was a good family Dad that played with his kids especially sports. Rest in peace . Sorry we missed the service, both working. Our condolences.
