Kathleen, Cindy, Robert and David. We are all so sad about Uncle Bob. Our hearts break with yours. We loved him and your Mom. There are so many memories our family have interwoven with your family from babies in Bayonne to our adult lives. Both of your parents were always around for us. I have clear beautiful memories of them visiting with us wherever we lived! And having a relationship with them as an adult was precious! You four and your families were the greatest joy in your parents lives. And through them, we have stayed in the loop of your lives. We have kept your Dad (and your Mom) in our thoughts and prayers and will continue to do so. Our love and prayers for you all. Eternal rest grant unto Uncle Bob, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

I have so many memories of Bob (and Dolores) as their house on Regal Drive was practically my 2nd home growing up with David and our families spent a lot of wonderful times together in the 70's and 80's. I was fortunate enough to get to see Bob and Dolores about 10 years ago when they came to visit us in Florida and it was wonderful to reminisce about all the great years we spent in Colonia and have one last conversation about our beloved New York Giants. Bob (always Mr. Dalton to me) you were a great Dad and friend and you will be missed! David, Kathleen, Cindy and Robert you guys are in my thoughts and prayers.

My condolences to the Dalton Family. I would like to share a few memories of Bob. We met at a meeting after Superstorm Sandy in 2012. We were concerned about all the rules, regulations and the bureaucracy concerning the rebuilding of our homes. I was there on a selfish endeavor to rebuild my home. Not till years later did I find out Bob's home had minimal damage. His advocacy was to help others. After several months and constant communication Bob was a key person, behind the scenes, in helping develp a national non-profit to help people rebuld after floods. As the years rolled on in our advocacy Bob and I would go to luch a few ti,es a year, he and I both loved Kosta's grill in Tuckerton. We became more than advocates, we became friends. Bob was a selfless man. A few years into our friendship I spoke to one of his children, I beleive his name was Bob. I found out he was also an advocate concerning harmful chemicals in carpeting and flooring. I wish I could have one last lunch with Bob to tell him; I appreciate your service in the military. I appreciate your advocacy. I appreciated your friendship. You left this world a better place than you found it. May god bless you and your family. You will be sorely missed. Love you Big George

Kathleen, Cindy, Robert and David, I loved your dad. He was my right hand man, and was always there when needed, handing me the right tool and advice on how to use it. I am not only your husband/brother in-law—he made me feel like his own son and for that I am eternally grateful. I will miss his wisdom and whit along with his smile and laugh but I know he will still be with me when I reach for the next tool in life. His greatest quality was that he taught his children to always do the right thing. Be assured this Airman is on his mission in heaven. Love your brother, Danny
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Bob and his partner Barbara were fixtures at Keyport Yacht Club on Friday nights when my band played. All of us loved seeing them there, enjoying our music - singing along and dancing in their seats. Bob was such a lovely person, and we so appreciated his kindness and support of our music. We will miss seeing him, sitting next to Barbara on the bay side of the bar, smiling, drinking his gin & tonic, and bopping along to “Pretty Woman” or “I Saw Her Standing There.” Rest In Peace dear friend. With love from Sherry & The Pirates (Sherry, Vince, Mark, JC, John, Jeff, and Mike).
