Stanley Sylvan Carlton Obituary
July 9, 1925 - April 22, 2017 Stan died peacefully at the age of 91 from chronic lung disease in Thousand Oaks, California. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the son of the late Louis and Helen Carnow (formerly Cohen) and the brother of the late Bertram Carnow MD and Harry Carnow MD. His loving wife of 65 years Jemma Cassandra Carlton and his son Robert Carnow Carlton predeceased him. His sons Dana Carlton DDS and Timothy A. Carlton MD and daughters-in-law Cathy Carlton, Toni Carlton MD and Bette Erickson Carlton and his grandchildren Jason, Jennifer, Elise, Brian and Janie Carlton Myers and his grandson-in-law Gavin Myers and great-grandchildren Brooks and Kemp Myers and his step-grandsons-in-law Greg, Jeff and Mike Erickson and granddaughter-in-law Tani Baldonado Carlton and great-grandchildren-in-law Noah, Sage, Bradyn and Taj Erickson survive him. Stan graduated Erasmus Hall High School in New York City and served in the Army during WWII escorting soldiers with acute post traumatic stress disorder to psychiatric hospitals. He met the love of his life Jemma on one such trip to Boston and they were married soon after in Holliston, MA. He obtained a degree in orthotics from Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City and moved to Encino, CA, in 1949 with his family, Jemma and Dana, to oversee the department of orthotics and prosthetics at the Wadsworth VA Hospital in Westwood, CA. After the birth of Tim and Bob he went on to found Vogue Orthopedic Appliances with his partner Rudy Curinga with offices in Van Nuys, Reseda, and Thousand Oaks, CA, and was the largest supplier of orthotic services in the San Fernando Valley for many years. He was one of the longest standing members of AAOP (American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists). Stan founded Vogue Orthopedic Systems which made parts for the original military night vision goggles. Stan was a longstanding member of the Westlake Yacht Club. He enjoyed watching golf and the LA Lakers and traveling, while Jemma was alive, with frequent trips to her native Italy. Stan was an outgoing individual and loved conversation with all whom he could engage. His charm and generosity were two of his greatest attributes. He will be missed by all who knew him. The family would like to thank his caring physician Dr. Francoise Menteer and the staff and the residents of Atria Hillcrest who made the last months of life so fulfilling. He loved you all.
