David Dalley

April 19, 1943 — July 19, 2023

David Lynn Dalley left this world peacefully July 19, 2023. He was born on April 19, 1943 in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Abram Fitzgerald and Sadie Buttars Dalley, the sixth of ten children and grew up in Idaho and Utah. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Southwest Indian Mission in Arizona and New Mexico speaking Navajo. He worked for Ireco Chemicals for fifteen and a half years where he met Joyce Lynn Krainock. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple, and had three children: Dayna, David and Chandra and lived in Minnesota, Arizona, Canada, and Utah. They later divorced. He met Christie Kay Baddley Carter in Provo and they were married in the Provo Temple. She brought four children: Scott, Wendy, Megan and Thea into the family and they had one child, Katy, together. Through efforts and prayers the blended family became one.

Dave was in the Air National Guard from 1965 -71 where he was a medic but always wanted to fly. He finally achieved his dream when he became a pilot in 1989. He got his commercial and instrument ratings and enjoyed flying his friends and relatives around.

David worked as an Explosive Tech, for LaVelle Powder in Montana, he co-owned Mountain Valley Landscaping in Highland, Utah, then worked for Micron for ten years. After he retired he was a school bus driver for Alpine School District where the students enjoyed his teasing.

He loved each calling and loved and was loved by everyone he worked with.

He and Christie were married for 41 years. After raising their children, they went on two missions and had a deep love for the people in each one. They were called to the Kenya Nairobi Mission in 2013 and to the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission in 2018.

He was preceded in death by his parents and four sisters: Geraldine Lewis, Elaine Winward, Margaret Murdock and Nola Allen, and grandson, Ryan Jones. He is survived by his wife, Christie and children: Scott Carter (Babak), Wendy Walker (Max), Dayna Jones (Troy), David Dalley, Jr.(Lena). Megan Christesen (Richard).
