"I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Dalton during his internship at Wabasha County Sheriffs Office. He road with me for several shifts and hours. He was a joy to get to know and spend time with. He made having an intern with you fun! We became friends during that time. After his internship he came to join our Friday nigh softball team in Elgin. I was the only one who knew him but in very short time he was known and loved by the entire team. He was also so calm, collected, and polite. He was easily one of the people you tried to imitate when it came to kindness and trying to be a better person towards others. He will be greatly missed by everyone that had contact with him. "
