Burr James Dalton Obituary
April 27, 1938 - August 23, 2015 On August 23, 2015, Burr James Dalton passed away in his home in Newport Beach, California, surrounded by his family. He was 77 years old. Burr was born in the Los Angeles area and raised in North Hollywood where he lived with his parents, Adair and Burr Dalton, and his sister, Patricia. He attended high school at the Harvard School and college at the University of Southern California ("USC"), where Burr was a pre-med student and a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. During his freshman year at USC, Burr met the love of his life, Margie Bowman. Following their graduation from USC, Burr and Margie were married in 1961. Burr then attended the University of Louisville School of Medicine, graduating with a Doctor of Medicine in June of 1965, and thereafter served his internship and residency at Los Angeles County - USC Medical Center. Burr's residency was interrupted while he served as a Major in the U.S. Army at the 29th Evacuation Hospital in Can Tho, Vietnam. Upon his return, Burr completed his medical residency and thereafter moved with Margie and their two children to Newport Beach to open his private medical practice as an obstetrician gynecologist. Dr. Dalton was a dedicated physician and surgeon at Huntington Beach Hospital, Pacifica Hospital and Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian during his 28 years of practice. Burr was a devoted family man and spent most of his spare time with his wife, children and later grandchildren. He loved the mountains and the Daltons spent many winters skiing and summers camping, hiking and fishing in Utah, Colorado and especially the California Sierras. Burr had numerous interests and loved to learn and master new skills. When he wasn't cheering on the USC Trojans, he might be refinishing furniture, rebuilding a Ford Mustang, tying flies for fly-fishing, building models, painting scenes from his most recent travels or attending a grandchild's sporting event. Burr had a quick, dry sense of humor with a touch of silliness, which added an endearing quality to his otherwise quiet nature. Burr is survived by his wife, Margie, his daughter, Mindy Waterman (husband Matt Waterman), his son, Burr Dalton, Jr. (wife Becca Dalton), his grandchildren, Sean, Kyle and Cameron Waterman and Jack and Brooke Dalton, and his sister, Patricia Pettis. In accordance with Burr's wishes, a private memorial service was held by the family. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation made in memory of Burr J. Dalton to either the University of Louisville School of Medicine or a .
