July 15, 1957 - March 28, 2021
Jeffrey Michael Daulton passed away on Sunday in the arms of his children and wife. He passed away in the comfort of his home that he loved and helped build. Dad was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1957 and grew up on the banks of the Scioto River. His father, William, was a builder, pilot, and dreamer. His mother, Gene, is loving, fierce, and always sought the best for her kids. They were his heroes and he admired them more than anything apart from his wife and children. As a child, Jeff was unassuming and quick as lighting. He lived to water ski, play baseball, and snuggle his dogs. If he wasn't playing sports, he was planning pranks, watching Star Trek, or helping his dad in the yard. Jeff attended The Ohio State University and graduated with a degree in accounting and finance. At the end of his senior year, he met Debra Olinger in accounting class. They fell in love in the blink of an eye and lived together for the rest of his life. They were water skiing partners at first, diehard Ohio State loyalists throughout, and unwavering parents to four children always. Dad truly loved his work as a financial advisor for nearly 35 years with Merrill Lynch, even with all of its highs and lows. Dad was always looking to strike up a conversation on Ohio State lore, accounting, or politics. He loved the Browns and was once a season ticket holder. He stuck with them through the winless years and was able to see them rise again. He loved collecting coins and proudly shared them with anyone he could. Jeff welcomed anyone into his heart that walked through the front door. He prioritized providing for his children above all, even if to his own detriment. We owe much to his sacrifice and will never stop loving him. Dad is preceded in death by his father, William, and daughter, Jennifer. He is survived by his spouse, Debra; children, Ryan, Robert, and Riley; daughter-in-law, Rebecca; mother, Gene; siblings, Stephen, Bill, and Susan; father and mother-in-law, Max and Mary; cousins, nieces, and nephews. A celebration of dad's life will be held at the Daulton household in Dublin on Saturday, April 10 starting at 3:30 PM. All are welcome! In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jeff Daulton Memorial Scholarship Fund to benefit members of the Ohio State water ski team. Details of the fund are at: .
