Dayton was employed at Broan NuTone Company located in Hartford.

His fellow D & D players often commented that Dayton was the BEST Dungeon Master bringing so much creativity and design to the game. Other hobbies included video gaming with his fellow gamers and playing cribbage with family every time he was home visiting. Dayton also held a special love for all animals. His kindness and humility were so much a part of who Dayton was. He will be sadly missed.
