Eric Dalman Obituary
Eric Dalman was taken by our Lord to be healed Tuesday, April 22, 2012. He was 57 years old. Eric passed away after a long battle with cancer that culminated in a liver transplant. His one wish was that more people would become organ donors so more people could be afforded a second chance.
Eric was born in Michigan on Sept. 15, 1954. Eric served honorably in the United States Army from 1972 to 1975. Eric worked in many states and he owned and operated a Pizza Mill and Putt Putt golf in Artesia for several years. He was very well known and a friend to many.
Eric moved to Alamogordo 22 years ago where he met his wife, Christine, formerly of England. He lived in New Mexico for 30 years and his last working years in New Mexico were at the Inn of the Mountain Gods in Ruidoso, where he worked for nine years as a casino dealer and shift manager. Eric's last six years were spent in Arizona working for Harrah's Ak Chin Casino in Maricopa.
He was preceded in death by his father, Paul Dalman. He is survived by his mother, Lauraine Dalman, of Florida; his wife, Christine Dalman, formerly of Alamogordo; two brothers, Bruce and Howard, of Michigan, and their wives and children; a daughter, Laura Payne, and her husband, Jeremy, and three children, Ezekiel, Ethan and Joslyn, all of Michigan; and stepchildren Lee Wilder, of Alamogordo, his wife, Sandra, and children Keith and Toni, Carl Wilder, of England, his wife, Kay, and children Kevin, Iami and Mia, Dean Wimbrow and his wife, Nannette, and children Cody, Gabriel and Faith, formerly of Alamogordo, Tanya Williams and her husband, Ian, and children Kirsty, Michelle and Tristan, formerly of Alamogordo, and Rebekah Pohlen and her husband, John; and youngest grandson Jake, of North Carolina.
Eric loved all his grandchildren dearly and was very proud of them all. He is greatly missed by all of his family. He is also missed by his three lovely dogs that adored him in life and miss him terribly.
A celebration of Eric Dalman's life will take place at the Moose Lodge in Alamogordo on Sunday, May 27, 2012, starting at 1 p.m.; all who knew Eric are welcome. There will be a cash bar and a buffet served.
