Dalton Dwayne Warfield, Sr., was born February 5, 1947, to parents Charles E. Warfield and Margaret “Babe” Eva Faye Barlett-Warfield and was one of six children. He gave his life to Jesus Christ at a young age and was baptized at Forest Baptist Church. In 1965, Dalton graduated from Seneca High School. In 1966, he was drafted into the army where he served in the Vietnam War. He was honorably discharged in 1968 and received the following decorations: National Defense Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, Expert Badge (M-14Rifle), and the Vietnam Service Medal.
He had a deep love for his family first and foremost, but he also loved cars and motorcycles, and racing them was his passion. Dalton also knew how to work on cars, and he taught his boys and even his daughter Detra his knowledge of being “under the hood”. Dalton drove semi-cross country until his health prevented him, and even with that, he kept busy cutting grass and helping others with their cars. He was definitely a jack of all trades.
On December 4,2022, his daughters were right by his side when God said, “Come home, Son. You are at peace now”. Dalton leaves to celebrate his life: daughters, Detra L. Warfield and Dalila S. Warfield; sons, Dalton D. Warfield Jr., and Ta’Ziyah L. Bakara (Jessie Hickman); sister, Sharon R. (Sherri) Warfield; sister-in-law, JoAnn Warfield; nine grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends.
He was preceded in death his by: wife, Diane (Taylor) Warfield; three brothers, Alvin E. Warfield, Warner W. (Butch) Warfield Sr., Carlos C. (Corky); one sister, Judith Nadine Warfield-Hill; great-grandson, Shakur N. Rapp-Walker; and great-granddaughter, Jhariya R. Mahan
