Dalton Eades, 14, of Walton, passed away Monday, January 22, 2024, at Riley Hospital for Children. A young man with so much personality, talent and love, is gone too soon. In the midst of this great loss, his family is comforted by the many people reaching out to help them honor and celebrate his life. Dalton will live on through his final gift as an organ and tissue donor with the Indiana Donate Life Network.
Born July 16, 2009, Dalton was the son of Thomas Eades and Tammy (Barker) and Mark Moyer, who survive.
A freshman at Lewis Cass High School, Dalton was a member of the FFA. He was also active in the Cass County 4-H Shooting Sports club. Dalton loved the outdoors and enjoyed 4-wheeling, fishing and bike-riding. He was born with the natural ability to do anything mechanical. His greatest love was speed roller skating. Dalton had traveled to competitions all over the Midwest and was quickly becoming a stand-out in the sport. He also enjoyed playing baseball.
Dalton was baptized at the Lucerne Christian Church. It is the hope and the prayer of his family that Dalton’s death will be a catalyst for awareness and suicide prevention so that other families are spared from this tragedy.
Surviving with his parents Tom Eades, and Tammy and Mark Moyer, are his brothers, Cameron Eades and Ron Moyer; his sisters, Mallory Lee and Chelsea Dixson; and his grandparents, Steve Barker and Tom Moyer. He is also survived by his nieces and nephew, Dillon Lee, Lillian Lee, Bristal Dixson and Bexlie Dixson, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jerry Eades, Donnis Eades, Janet Barker and Mary Lou Moyer; and his uncle, Jerry Eades, Jr.
