Dayton V Altman

April 4, 1959 ~ March 27, 2020 (age 60)


Mr. Dayton Vaughan Altman, age 60 of N. Myrtle Beach, SC passed away on Friday the twenty seventh of March 2020 in the Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Center, Brunswick House, Bolivia, NC after an extended illness.

            Dayton was born on the fourth of April 1959 in Ft. Benning, GA to the late Eugene Ray Altman, Sr. and Patricia Lulie Vaughan Altman. He was a master boat repairman and electronics installer by trade. His love of the water and boating led him to obtain his Captains License known as a “Six Pack license”. Dayton enjoyed sailing and his life-long dream was to sail his boat “Typhoon” to Bermuda. His illness prevented the trip, but now he is sailing forever.

            Surviving are his loving wife of 38 years, Cathy Thomas Altman; a son, Thomas Altman and fiancé Taylor LeGette of N. Myrtle Beach, and his only grandson whom he loved very much, Gibson Altman; a brother, Eugene Ray Altman, Jr., and wife Sharon of N. Charleston, SC; and a host of extended family and friends.

            Memorial services are not being planned due to health concerns for our friends and family. His wife Cathy will respond to messages and condolences on her facebook page.

            The family requests with gratitude any monetary donations be made to the “Gibson Altman Education Fund” at POB 3245, N. Myrtle Beach, SC 29582.
