I will always remember his sweet and kind smile. The Dalton and Stier families go back many many years. Bobby and I were classmates for many years and our families carpooled together. His mom was the greatest cook and would share with us.
I will remember him as a kind soft spoken gentle person. I'm sure y'all will miss him very much. . My prayers are for y'all at this very sad time.
