James E. Dalton, 81; founded 2 insurance-claims companies: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice

San Diego Union-Tribune, The (CA) - Friday, May 1, 1992
Deceased Name: James E. Dalton, 81; founded 2 insurance-claims companies
James E. Dalton, a local insurance claims executive and co-founder of Pacific Claims Service Inc., died last Friday of cancer. He was 81 and lived in Clairemont.
Mr. Dalton was born in Illinois and graduated in 1935 from Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Mont., with a degree in business administration.
He worked in the field of accident claims for the state of Montana, and later for the Internal Revenue Service.
During World War II, he was commissioned a lieutenant in the Navy. After the war he joined the Naval Reserve and retired as a lieutenant commander.
Mr. Dalton moved to San Diego in 1949 and worked for several insurance-claims companies before opening J.E. Dalton and Co. in 1966. Three years later he opened Pacific Claims Service with two partners, retiring in 1981.
He was active in several professional and social organizations, including a term as president of the San Diego Insurance Adjusters Association. He had been a member of the Point Loma Masonic Lodge, the local Scottish Rite Free Masonry and the Al Bahr Temple. Survivors include his wife, Margaret; and two sisters, Mary Helen Prelec and Opal Crossman, both of Salem, Ill.
The family suggests contributions to the Masonic Lodges' Crippled Children Fund or the American Cancer Society.
