Dalton E. “Salty Dog” McGuire, 62, Logansport, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, December 13, 2023, in the Parkview Hospital of Fort Wayne.

Born July 30, 1961, in Logansport, he was the son of the late Ray Allen and Shirley Ann (Harness) McGuire.

Dalt was a graduate of Logansport High School. His kind heart, good looks and charisma were hard to resist. He worked for Logansport Municipal Utilities at the wastewater treatment plant for seven years and for fifteen years for the City of Logansport’s Street Department.

An all-around good kind of ornery, Dalt’s silly and playful personality made him easy to love. Dalt made friends with everyone, and he would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He enjoyed playing softball and was a longtime fan of the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bears. Dalt loved country music, had a beautiful singing voice, and was quite the harmonica player himself. In his spare time, Dalt was happiest just tinkering around in his garage. But time spent with his family, including his dogs, was the most important thing in his life. As a final gift. Dalt leaves behind the gift of life as an organ donor, making an impact on this world that is immeasurable. 

He is survived by four children, Dustin McGuire, Dalton (Misty) McGuire, Lindsey (Nate) Miller and Dylan Conwell; three brothers, Robert McGuire, Mark McGuire and Gary Rombold; one sister, Tammy (Jon) Burks; his beloved grandchildren, Damon, Mason, Adaline, Destiny, Ella, Savannah, McKane, Olivia, Michael, Veda and Pepper; great-grandchildren, Silas and Preston; his extended kids Nate, Nalyn, Nike, Doryn, Tanner, Brady, and several other nieces and nephews who he loved as his own.

He was preceded in death by two sisters, Kandy Crockett and Mandy “K-K” McGuire; and a great-granddaughter, Faye.

Visitation will be held from 3-6 p.m. Sunday, December 17, at Fisher Funeral Chapel. Chicago Bears attire is encouraged.

A funeral service celebrating Dalt’s life will follow in the funeral chapel at 6 p.m.
