Dalton James January 30, 1990 - March 9, 2017

A Celebration of Life for Dalton James, 27, of Sisters, will be held at 5 p.m., Tuesday, March 28, at the Sisters Rodeo Clubhouse.

Dalton passed away Wednesday, March 9, 2017 in Dunn Center from injuries sustained in a motor-vehicle accident.

Dalton Ray James was born January 30, 1990 to Stacy James. He grew up in Central Oregon and graduated from Sisters High School in 2008. Dalton built his first guitar during his junior year, which added to his love for music. He wrote a song he titled "These Boots," and touched many people with the lyrics. He also was a part of his school's football and wrestling teams.

The annual Sisters Rodeo was a big part of Dalton's life. No matter where or what he was doing he always made sure to attend. Dalton worked at the Three Creeks Brewery in Sisters before moving to Dickinson in 2012 to seek work. He worked for various jobs including Titan Chemical, Pathfinder, ZECO and Smithies Hot Shot.

Dalton shared his musical talent at many bars. He won second place in the 2013 Dickinson's Got Talent and opened at the Bandshell. Dalton enjoyed having jam sessions and bonfires with friends. He made friends that turned into family everywhere he went. He will be truly missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him, and even those who didn't get a chance.

Dalton is survived by his mother, Stacy Berk of Dickinson; brother, Colton Berk of Bend; grandparents, Laurel and Bill Chrisp of Washington; dog, Tank; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends too numerous to list.
