Brian was born, Brian Edward Coker, to Brian Coker and Lisa Elibee on February 2, 1992. His name was changed to Brian Kelly Dalton on March 08, 1998 when he was adopted by Mr. Kelly C. Dalton and Mrs. Shawn C. Dalton. Brian attended Fort Pitt Elementary School, where he maintained an A+ GPA graduating on the Honor Roll, and moving on to East Hills Magnet School maintaining his A+ and moving to High honor status. Moving on to Reizenstien Middle school he’s grades began to drop, but he picked them up enough to move on to Westinghouse High School, where he dropped out.
He was known as “Popcorn” to his friends. The Homewood community watched him grow up. As an adult he was loved by young and old alike. Both he and his brother Greg played with the Homewood football team Mighty Mites, winning a trophy each. Brian left home after his father Kelly (better known as NY and The Colonel) became paralyzed from a debilitating stroke, and after meeting the wrong person (who gets no praise here) that would change his life forever. He would also lose both, Kelly, and Brian Sr., within the next 8 years. Brian was known and loved as compassionate, caring, charismatic, with an infectious smile, passionate, and free spirited. Brian also wore his heart on his sleeve. As time moved on Brian decided to achieve his GED and succeeded. He also succeeded by having his first child Chevelle whom he loved very much. He met and reunited with his biological mother giving him the chance to meet his other siblings. All of whom cannot be mentioned, but know who they are.
Taken away from us much too soon, and way to long, and will be truly missed, Brian leaves behind his mother Shawn, brothers: Gregory, Kelly Jr., Kim; sisters: Lisa, Denise, Sharrise, Linda, and Lyndal Dalton; Daughter: Chevelle Dalton, sisters: Sabrina A. Coker and Britnay Elibee, and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
