Dalton was born in Pendleton, OR, November 27, 1993. He was the son of Misty “Hummingbird” Sheoships and Damon McKay. He was an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. He was raised in Thornhollow on the Umatilla reservation. Dalton attended school in Athena and Weston. Dalton also went to Wolf Creek Job Corps in Roseburg, OR where he specialized in Firefighting and Forestry. Dalton loved to hunt big game, fish, and roam the mountains and rivers.

  Dalton was very outgoing and mischievous person and loved to tease and joke around, you knew he was up to no good when you see that big grin come out and that light in his eyes.  Dalton was all about family and his friends became family for him.  Dalton could make new friends, striking up conversation with a perfect stranger like he knew them for years. He loved to watch boxing, UFC, baseball, and football and he could quote stats and all things sports related. His favorite football team was the New England Patriots. If anyone knew Dalton his favorite go to meal was a cup of steaming hot Raman Noodles which he perfected. Dalton will be missed by all who knew him; he gave the gift of laughter, a shoulder to lean and his smile.
