Meet Dalton Keith Johnson


Dalton Keith Johnson entered this beautiful world on August 15, 2000, and instantly, the world was a brighter place. Dalton was born to Neil and LindyAnne Johnson, making them parents to their very first little boy. Dalton is the only brother in a sibling tribe of four; three girls and one boy. Dalton lived 6920 days on earth and each day was blessed to meet his smile. Dalton’s enormous passion, kindness, selflessness, and caring heart was evident in his daily life. Dalton’s 6920 days on this Earth gave life to what is now, The Dalton House. Dalton was killed on July 26, 2019 when a distracted driver pulled out in front of him while he was driving home from State Fair Community College on his motorcycle. Dalton was killed instantly. We often say, Dalton’s spirit was too beautiful for Earth, his smile infectious, and his tender soul continues to touch people every day. The Dalton House was born from Dalton’s legacy in finding joy, success and hope in the midst of intense adversity.
