Gary D. Dalton
Circleville, Utah

    Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Gary Dean Dalton, returned home to our Father in Heaven on June 19, 2023 at his home in Circleville.
    Gary was born August 5, 1935 in Circleville to Charles Delbert and Ella Rhea Savage Dalton.  He married Ann Eleth Henrie on June 1, 1957 in the Manti Temple, recently celebrating their 66th wedding anniversary.
    He grew up farming in Circleville with his brothers and father.  He graduated from Piute High School in 1953 and went to the College of Southern Utah where he graduated in 1956 in Auto Mechanics.  He then moved to Provo and attended Utah Technical College where he learned to rewind motors, which he loved to do.
    Gary and Ann met on a blind date in Provo. After they married they made their home in Circleville.  In addition to raising four sons and two daughters, he also built their home where they have lived for 54 years.
    He loved nothing more than working with his sons on various farming and business ventures and loved having the grand and great-grandchildren close.  He was so proud of his family.
    Gary had an unwavering testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and of our Savior.  He served in various church callings, including bishoprics and as a stake clerk.  Gary and Ann spent 18 years as ordinance workers in the St. George Temple, served a mission to Winnipeg, Canada and had a wonderful experience serving a mission at the Nauvoo Temple.
    He had a deep and abiding love and respect for our country and for the Circlevalley.  He erected and maintained the U.S. Flag on the hill on the south end of Circleville.  He will be deeply missed.
    Gary’s survivors include his beloved wife, Ann; children: Michael (Carolyn) Dalton, Circleville; Lon (Sundee) Dalton, St. George; Bryce (Denise) Dalton, Circleville; Joseph (Stacy) Dalton, Circleville; Ruth Ann (Gavin) Brown and Holly (Chet) Beeson, both of Cedar City; Boyd Mitchell, Park City; 30 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren, with three more on the way; sisters: Sharon Heiser, Cedar City; and Marcea (Richard) Nielson, Ephraim.  
    He is preceded in death by his parents; siblings: Nordel Dalton, Mona Fullmer and Keith Dalton.
