In Memory of Peter F. Dalton - Veterans' Walk Memorial - 12/14/2013 Dedication [ 11/10/1942 - 05/24/2011 ]

Family and friends gathered for the dedication of the Peter F. Dalton Memorial Bench and Gardens.

"Peter's Bench" in place, and work on the Veterans' Walk is completed.


Passion for life, extraordinary drive, character and care for others sums up Peter Dalton.

His value system, work ethic and loyalty were traits Peter coached to others throughout his entire life...and done in that great sense of humor we all knew and loved about him!

Peter graduated from Norwich University in 1965 and went on to serve in the United States Army as a platoon leader for the 11th Armored Calvary Regiment, A Troop, 1st Squadron during the Vietnam War.

He was honorably discharged as a Captain in 1968.

He was the recipient of the Purple Heart, two Bronze Stars, one with Valor and the Vietnamese Silver Star.

Peter was founder, CEO and co-owner of Dalton Enterprises, Inc. of Cheshire, CT.

He was a generous man of selfless standing whose sense of humor, love of family and devotion to the Madison community became his trademark.

His presence filled a room; his first concern was always for others and how they were.

All who knew Peter will sorely miss him for his 'Daltoism' sayings and charismatic personality.

He left an indelible mark on all who knew and loved him, and it brings a smile to one's face and an ache to one's heart thinking about his passing.
