Rodney O. Dalton, 64, of Marysville, passed away unexpectedly Friday, December 27, 2019 at Memorial Hospital of Union County after several months of failing health.
Born May 9, 1955 in Columbus, he was the son of John and Fiona Willison and his mother preceded him in death. On August 31, 2002 in Gatlinburg, TN he married Dixie Rausch and she survives in Marysville. In addition to his wife, he is also survived by his father, John; children, Christina and Michael Dalton; Step Children, Wendy Hay, Carrie Warner and Gary Miller; several grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; brothers, John and Jay and a sister, Brenda.
Rodney worked as a fabricator at DeFabco in Columbus for over 40 years. He loved watching sports on TV, following Tiger Woods in golf, the Ohio State Buckeyes in football, the Columbus Blue Jackets in hockey or any baseball game. He and Dixie truly enjoyed NASCAR and attending the races, which is where they appropriately spent their honeymoon.
In keeping with Rodney's wishes, there will be no calling hours or services held at this time and a gathering of family and friends is being planned for the spring and will be announced at a later date.
