William J. Dalton (long time VSCDA Chief of Tech) died Saturday October 8, 2011 at Rockford Memorial Hospital. After retiring from Tech he continued to show up at Blackhawk Farms or Road America to fill in as a corner worker or what ever was needed.
Bill was in the tech barn at Blackhawk doing what he loved when hit with a heart attack. Having played his guitar in many a jam session at VSCDA events, it amazes me how few knew so little about Bill. He retired from a career as a mechanical engineer but in an earlier life, Bill was one of the origenal Jersey Boys. He wrote the song "We like Short Shorts", and toured with greats like Buddy Holly, BB King, Frankie Avalon and others. Bill will be missed at race tracks troughout the Midwest.
