Dalton was born July 15, 1990 to his loving parents Thomas and Denise Mustard, in Corpus Christi, Texas. He was the youngest of three children and was adored by his two older sisters Julia and Cristin. He graduated from Mary Carroll High School in 2009, where he enjoyed playing football, participating in 4H, and competing in 4H shooting sports earning two State Championships. He was also actively involved in both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Upon graduation from high school, he became the proudest member of the fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2013. While at Texas A&M College Station, Dalton pursued a degree in Construction Science, where he completed an internship with David Weekly homes in Houston and developed a passion for building.

After graduation, Dalton worked for various homebuilders in Corpus Christi, finally landing his dream job as a Construction Manager for Coventry Homes in Houston in 2017.
Dalton was an avid sportsman, enjoying all types of outdoor activities including hunting and fishing. He especially enjoyed time spent outdoors with his beloved father, brother in-laws and friends. He also enjoyed watching and participating in all types of sports and had an extraordinary knowledge of sport statistics. Dalton’s personality and quick wit matched his larger than life persona. He had a laugh that was contagious and a smile that could brighten anyone’s day. He valued his friendships and always saw the best in people.
