John Stevens Waller (born 18 April 1924) was the seventh Suffragan Bishop of Stafford.[1]

Waller was educated at St Edward's School, Oxford and served during World War II with the RNVR. When peace came he studied at Peterhouse, Cambridge[1] and Wells Theological College before being ordained priest in 1951. He began his career with curacies at Hillingdon and Tiverton[2] before incumbencies at Strood and Harpenden. In 1979 he ascended to the Episcopate, a post he held for 8 years. A man of strong convictions[3] he retired in 1987, becoming an Assistant Bishop within the Bath and Wells diocese.
