Leslie Van "LV" Staton, age 82 of Georgetown, Texas passed away on March 30, 2015. He was born October 13, 1932 in Georgetown to Leslie and Savannah (Innmon) Staton. He married Yvonne Scott on February 5, 1954 in Georgetown Texas.

LV attended the original Rock House School. During the time his daughters were growing up, he would load family and neighbors in his truck and go to the farm to ride horses and to hunt. At family gatherings, he would be the Master BBQ Chef and official sausage sampler. Our family knew how much he cared for them by the nickname he would give them. LV selflessly served in the United States Army from 1950 - 1954. He was honored to serve the country that he loved.

Survivors include his wife, Yvonne Scott Staton; daughters, Donna Staton Hand (husband Bob Hand), Sue Staton Smith (husband Ronny Smith); granddaughters, Sara Richards (her husband Adam), Ashley Sugimura (her husband Tait), Brittany Smith White (her husband Bryan); grandson, Tanner Smith; great grandchildren, Halli, T.J., Xander, Maile, Taitum, Kristen, Blake, and Bailey Grace. He also raised Yvonne Maund; children, Lindsey Upton (Patrick), Adam Maund (Nicole); and Blair, Kennedy and Hudson as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
