Dassault Falcon Bids Reluctant Farewell

On Sunday evening, January 12th, Bob Dalin and his wife Linda, were killed in a motorcycle accident in Sarasota (FL).  Dalin was a Regional Sales Manager for Dassault Falcon, responsible for sales in the Eastern United States. He started his career with Dassault in 1986, and in the ensuing 17 years, sold over $800 million worth of Falcons.

"Bob's death is a tremendous loss for us," said John Rosanvallon, president of Dassault Falcon, at an impromptu company memorial in Miami last week.  "He was not only a valued colleague, but a close friend to many of us and we will miss him dearly."

Dalin was a decorated Marine and Vietnam veteran. After an honorable discharge from the Marine Corps. in 1968, he entered the aviation industry.

Friend and industry colleague Mike Gaffney, of Fleet Capital Leasing, said of Dalin, "When you mentioned his name to anyone that knew him, the immediate response would always be a smile and shake of the head." 

Sal Agosta of AT&T, concurred, adding, "Bob Dalin was all good things. He was a man of character and integrity."

He will be remembered not only for his knowledge of the corporate aviation market, but for the life he lived beyond the walls of the office. He was passionate about Falcons, naming his 42-foot sailboat Mystère. He and his wife Linda also enjoyed riding their motorcycles, fishing and traveling together. Dalin was only 58 years old.
