Dalton was an intelligent, very kind-hearted person, who cared deeply for others, and found pleasure in the simple things, playing video games, being with friends, discussing history, and spending time with his dog, Romoe. Dalton’s quick wit, silliness, and quirky sense of humor made so many smiles. Dalton always wanted to live life to the fullest and experience all he could. Becoming his high school mascot, joining a fraternity in college, where he also found joy in politics. Attending many rallies and finding his way on CNN.
