Dalton DeMoss

Dalton Alexander DeMoss, 24, of High Island, died Tuesday, September 17, 2019. He was born to Darla Kay Barrow and David Dean DeMoss, on October 18, 1994, in Carlsbad, California. Dalton was an apprentice plumber with Kent Plumbing.

Dalton loved to play sports in school. He participated in football, basketball, track and baseball and excelled in all of them. Dalton loved gaming on his Xbox One with all his friends and family. His dad enjoyed gaming with him and they both were very competitive with each other.   He was always playing jokes with people and always smiling and laughing, and made you want to laugh. He had exceptional hearing and you could be in one room whistling and he wouldn't even be in the same area but would hear you and come out laughing and whistling along with you.   He was a kindhearted person. Even while he was sick, he would still think of others and try and make you laugh.

He is survived by his parents, Darla and David DeMoss, of High Island; paternal grandmother, Estille DeMoss, of Bullard; brothers, Dustin Barrow and his wife, Shelby, of Spring, David DeMoss II and Derek DeMoss, both of High Island; sister, Dannon DeMoss, of High Island; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

    Dalton was one of the first neighbors to greet when I moved here in April 2017. He gifted me a tomato plant. He also mowed my grass regularly, and helped me move heavy stuff. He was a great neighbor-helpful, creative, respectful, and optimistic..

    My deepest sympathies to the Demoss and Barrow families. I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Dalton was a very sweet young man and loved by so many. His happiness kept everyone smiling in his presence. He will be greatly missed.
