Not sure what to say?

As a member of the Dayton family via Doug's cousin Ward, it warms my heart to read about Doug's long and dedicated service to his country, to his work, and to his community. The values of the Dayton family have been passed down through the years and will continue to nurture future generations.

My heartfelt sympathies,
Carol McGrath (granddaughter of Ward Winchell Dayton)

My mother was a housekeeper and I took care of the boys after school in the 50's and early 60's. Douglas was always very kind to us as was his Mother, Mrs. G.N. Dayton. My thoughts and prayers are with David, Steven and Bruce and their families.

My mother worked for and retired from the Dayton Company. She was a dedicated employee and enjoyed her position there for many years. I remember reading the company news letter and how she praised all of your brothers and you as being wonderful people.

Doug offered me a trainee job in the spring of '59 when I'd paid my way up on the bus from college. I will forever be indebted to him and his brothers for the values they imparted.

Thank you for your beautiful daughter, Elizabeth.
Her role in changing lives will be held forever dearly in my heart.

Mr: Dayton,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe during WW II fighting the Germans as a member of the 5th Infantry Division-the "Red Diamond" Division which saw heavy action from July of 1944 through to VE Day in May of 1945. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
