Carlton was born June 25, 1941 in Groton, a son of the late Clyde and Florence Mosher Dann Sr.

A lifelong resident of the Groton area, he graduated from Groton Central School. He joined the United States Air Force in August 1961, serving until his discharge in January, 1965. Carlton was always very proud of his service to his country and always saluted the flag at every opportunity.

After that he worked at various other companies in the area, Marietta, Pall Trinity and others until his retirement.

Carlton was a past member of the Carrington-Fuller Post 800, American Legion. Active in his younger years with sports, he belonged to the Corona Club, Stonehedge Golf Club and played softball in the Groton summer leagues for many years.
