My Story

Giles Wilson Dalby, Sr., 80, of Post, Texas, went to be with the Lord on April 12, 2013, surrounded by his loving family.  He was born September 1, 1932 in Lubbock, Texas to the late Blanche Connell and Arno R Dalby.  He married the love of his life, Nell Floyd, on June 2, 1952, and enjoyed sixty wonderful years together. 

Dalby served many years as an Elder at First Presbyterian Church of Post.  According to Giles, his proudest accomplishment was his family, followed by his service to Garza County, the State of Texas and his association with Plains Capital Bank. 

Memories will forever be cherished by his three daughters Elizabeth Elliott and her husband Robert of San Angelo, Rebecca Dalby of Houston, Charlcie Mosser and husband Johnny of Lubbock, and son, Giles W. Dalby, Jr. and wife Mendy of Post, along with ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.  The family would also like to acknowledge Dorothy Pringler, Rhonda Valdez and Lee Wayne Greathouse for their years of love and care to the family.  He is also survived by specials cousins Lynn and Buddy Forbess of Lubbock and Mary Louise McCrary of Lubbock and longtime friends Joe Kirk Fulton, Jim Sexton, Bob Macy, and Jack Kirkpatrick.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are requested to First Presbyterian Church of Post (910 W. 10th Street Post, Texas 79356) or the Community Recovery Center (P.O. Box 622 Post, Texas 79356).

A celebration of life service will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 2 p.m. at the Post Antelope Arena with the burial to follow at the Cross H Ranch under the direction of Hudman Funeral Home.  Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m., April 15, at Hudman Funeral Home in Post.
