Dalton Eugene Monday Sr., a beloved member of the Winnsboro community, peacefully passed away on January 21, 2024, at his home at the age of 89. Born on April 2, 1934, in Winnsboro, Texas, Dalton was the son of the late Morris Elton and Oma Inez Monday.
 
 Dalton was born and raised in Winnsboro, Texas. After graduating from high school, Dalton proudly served his country as a member of the United States Navy. He joined in August 1952 and dedicated two decades of his life to the Navy, retiring with the honorable rank of RMC (SS) in July 1971. Dalton's service to his country was a source of immense pride for him, and he displayed unwavering loyalty and dedication throughout his military career.  Following his retirement from the Navy, Dalton pursued a career as a traffic supervisor in Irving, Texas for many years before retiring.
 
 Outside of work, Dalton had a passion for travel and adventure. He and his late wife, Frances, enjoyed exploring the country in their 5th wheel, creating cherished memories along the way. Dalton was particularly fond of visiting various casinos during their travels, where he could try his luck and socialize with new acquaintances.
 
 In his quiet moments, Dalton found enjoyment in tending to his yard and maintaining a beautiful landscape. He also took great pleasure in listening to the Winnsboro High School football games on the radio on Friday nights, cheering on the team with unwavering support.

Above all, Dalton enjoyed spending time with his family. His grandchildren fondly referred to him as “Grandpa” and he was very proud of all their achievements. His family will miss him deeply and the hole left by his absence will be impossible to fill.
