Our sweet and loving son and brother, Brooks Dalton passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by family on July 23, 2017.
Brooks was born October 7, 1960, in Cedar City, Utah to Warren Adams Dalton and Mary Dawn Orton Dalton.
Because of a childhood illness, Brooks struggled physically and mentally throughout his life. His childlike nature kept everyone on their toes and the spirit of childhood alive in the home. Brooks loved unconditionally and had a special twinkle in his eyes when family members visited. He enjoyed his books, puzzles and the tv shows of his childhood, especially Gunsmoke, Bonanza and Disney.
Brooks was lovingly cared for by his parents for 57 years. He was greatly loved and appreciated and a wonderful example of enduring to the end.
He is survived by his mother Mary Dawn of Parowan; two brothers: Rich of San Antonio, Texas and Layne (Dixie) of Santaquin, Utah; two sisters, Sherry Robinson (Jerry) of Parowan, Utah and Jeanne Locke (Haze) of Sandy, Utah; 15 nieces and nephews and 37 grand nieces and nephews.
Brooks is preceded in death by his father Warren A. and brother-in-law Haze Locke.
A graveside service in Brooks’ honor was Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 1 p.m. at the Parowan City Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be made at www.sumortuary.com.
Thanks and gratitude to all who had influence in Brooks’ life. A special thanks and gratitude to Tom Walker, Alicia Ibarra, the Danville crew and Zion’s Way Hospice.
