Dayton was born in Ponoka to Ole and Catherine Berg. He was the youngest of twelve children and was raised on the family farm. He spent his life working hard in the construction industry, while finding time for his passion of hunting and fishing.
Dayton is survived by his son Chris; sister Irene (Jack) Miller of Bentley; brothers Wensel (Colleen) of Tees and Elmer of Tees; sisters-in-law Helen of Quesnel, British Columbia and Margo of Andrew, Alberta; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Dayton was predeceased by his parents Ole and Catherine; sisters Edith, Eva, and Dora; brothers Norman, Dennis, Lawrence, Lance and Clayton; and sister-in-law Louise.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted to the charity of one's choice.
A Memorial Service will take place at a later date this summer.
