A death notice placed by his family with Stone Funeral Homes of Petoskey said he died "after a 16-year battle with Parkinson's disease."

Dr. Tanton had a 35-year career as an eye doctor and surgeon in Petoskey, a prosperous resort community of about 6,000 on the shore of Lake Michigan.

He was best known for leading nationwide efforts to reduce immigration to the United States, primarily as a way to preserve American culture. He also spearheaded efforts to make English the official language of the United States and to abolish bilingual education.
