Welcome friends to the story of Captain John L. Dailey
Jr.! John lived a spirited life overflowing
with love, laughter, adventure and good cheer. Each of us was blessed to heartily join John’s

this site as a virtual gathering place to share your thoughts, prayers, stories
and pictures that reflect your time with John.
