It is with a heavy heart that we share with the SORA family the loss of one of our alumni, Dale Barton ('15)

No information is currently available on the circumstances. The family has created a legacy page on facebook:
https://m.facebook.com/Dale-W-Barton-Legacy-282667305410470/

If you have stories, photos or laughs to share of your time with Dale, the family would love to hear them on the legacy page.

We will share information on a service/memorial as soon as those details are available.

From Nick Barton on Facebook:

This is the most heart breaking message that a family would ever have to post.

The Barton family, and the whole world lost a great, giant, gentleman on 5.22.16 - Dale W Barton.

Dale was living in Barcelona, Spain with young folks from all over the world. He was a "paid beach bum", happy, planning to chase the sun, and enjoying the life he was creating for himself.

Nick, Theresa and Kenneth are with him in Barcelona.

We will post all about the memorial plans soon. Please do not send flowers, we will provide info about that soon.

For now please share a photo, story, joke and memories of Dale on the Dale W. Barton Legacy page on Facebook.

Please think of Dale as the unique big boy who marched to his own drums, if you listen hard, you may be able to hear them.

Love the Barton Family.
