Dalton D Ziegler

December 30, 1993 ~ October 30, 2018 (age 24)

LODI - Dalton D. Ziegler, age 24, was taken from his loved ones unexpectedly on Tuesday October 30th, 2018. He was born December 30th, 1993 in Madison, Wisconsin to the parents of Christopher and Karen (Gehri) Ziegler.  Dalton graduated from Waunakee High School in 2012. Although Dalton had many career paths after high school he was most recently employed by Bullet Transit Company doing what he loved most, driving truck. Everyone who knew Dalton knows that his trucks were his pride and joy. Dalton owned both his grandfather’s truck and later his father’s. Dalton loved helping friends and family tend their crops and farm animals, as well as enjoying the outdoors in the form of snowmobiling and four wheeling. 

Dalton was many things to many people: A loving son, a caring brother, a fun uncle, a hardworking employee/coworker, and an amazing friend. He was someone we could always count on and would give anyone the shirt off his back if it meant he was helping. Dalton brought a smile and good times to everyone he knew. Dalton showed compassion to all he met, person or animal. 

Dalton is survived by his mother, Karen; four siblings, Samantha (Keith Dresen), Raechel (Cole Chritton), Dustin (Austin Kundert), and Damian (Alisha Schroeder). He is also survived by nieces, Haylee and Sadie, and nephew Logan as well as many aunts/uncles and cousins, grandparents, Ruth Ziegler, Larry and Carolyn Gehri and countless friends.  Dalton is preceded in death by his grandfather, David Ziegler, and his father, Christopher.
