Hoyt Staton, well-known Newport businessman, dies at 83
Author: Duay O'Neil
NEWPORT-Funeral services for well-known Newport businessman Hoyt Edward Staton will be held Wednesday evening in Manes Funeral Home Chapel.
Staton, 83, died Sunday at his Carson Springs home.
He was the former owner of The Furniture Palace, a business he established in the mid-1950s in a barn adjacent to Hwy. 25/70 in Wilsonville. Initially the business was called The Cow Palace, a name later changed to The Furniture Palace when a new building was construction next door.
He was also a member of the Newport Kiwanis Club for over 40 years and had served several terms as a member of its board of directors.
Staton sold the business upon his retirement in the early 1980s to the late Clyde Driskill, Jr. and the late Paul Lynch. It continues today under the ownership of Lynch's son and daughter-in-law David and Karen Nelson.
