Obituary of Oliver Harold Dalson
Oliver Dalson, of Fox Lake, formerly of Lake Forest, passed away Thursday, November 17, 2022, at the age of 80. He was born April 21, 1942 to Oliver and Sylvia Dalson. Oliver was married to the love of his life, Holly Dalson, nee Grandin, for 56 loving years. Together they raised two children, Julie Dalson Layton (Mike DeRose), Joel (Dawn) Dalson. He was a very proud Papa to his four grandchildren, Mckenzie and Austin Layton, Andrew and Olivia Dalson and a great-granddaughter Everly Layton. Oliver will be lovingly remembered by his sister, Elaine Wilcox. He was an affectionate uncle to nieces and nephews, and a kind friend to countless individuals. He touched the lives of so many people with his positive spirit and bigger than life personality. Oliver was a salesman at heart, working in the manufacturing industry for the majority of his career. He was also a proud veteran of the United States Army. What made him extremely happy was watching his children grow up in front of him. That pride grew with the arrival of his grandchildren (and great grandchild) whose lives he immersed himself into. He was a constant figure at sporting events, celebrations, and milestones in their lives. His influence on his loved ones will continue to impact their lives and he will forever be affectionately remembered as the proudest husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather there ever was. Memorial visitation will be Sunday, December 4, 2022 from 11:30AM-12:30 with service to follow at All Saints Lutheran Church, 5800 State Park Road, Fox Lake, IL.
