Gerald Duval Dalton

Gerald Duval Dalton – age 78, of Habitant, passed away on Monday, November 14, 2022 in the Grand View Manor, Berwick with his family by his side. Born in Waterville, he was a son of the late Edward "Ted" and Flora (Hudgins) Dalton.

Gerald, known as "Jeb" by some, was a carpenter all his life. He was the co-founder of the Triple D Bluegrass Festival, held in Black Rock, where he worked tirelessly. He enjoyed bowling in the mixed league at Fairlane bowling alley in New Minas. He also looked forward to his Friday night bingo outings at the Canning Lions Hall. Gerald was a very generous man with his time and craftmanship to whomever needed a helping hand. He participated in many craft shows in the local area doing what he loved to do, which was woodworking. Gerald was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather and will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Mona (Rhynold); son, Jeffery, of Habitant; daughters, Angela (Blaine O’Handley), of Cambridge, Crystal (Kevin Roscoe), of Cambridge; brothers, Roy, of Black Rock and Alfred, of Somerset; grandchildren, Kyle and Katelyn Schofield; great grandchildren, Emerson, Bodie, and Novaleigh.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers, Reggie and Eddie; and sister, Goldie.

The family would like to extend their sincere thanks of appreciation to the nurses and staff of Chase Unit at Grand View Manor for taking such wonderful care of Gerald.
