ACA Member Obituary
DALTON SHEPPARD JR.
Dalton Sheppard Jr., ACA International's
1985/86 president who was active in
advocacy and education efforts throughout
his career in the accounts receivable
management (ARM) industry, died Jan. 24 at
the age of 84.
One of his first goals as ACA president was
to establish the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship
fund to assist dependent children of ACA
employees in furthering their education
in honor of his friends and colleagues, I.D.
" Dempsey " Mortenson and Robert E. Loomer.
Sheppard was installed as the 47th president
of ACA at the Annual Convention & Expo
in 1985. He brought to the presidency a
substantial range of knowledge from many
experiences, including two terms as a member
of the South Carolina House of Representatives.
As an industry leader, he served on many
state and national committees in addition to

COLLECTOR 04.21

the ACA Board of Directors, where he formed
lifelong friendships.
Sheppard served in the U.S. Air Force
for 18 months after graduating from
high school and started his career in
the ARM industry after returning to his
home state of South Carolina, where he
started a credit reporting and collection
agency. His company, Creditdata, became
the statewide distributor of TRW (now
Experian), according to his obituary. He
eventually sold his company to TRW before
developing a second career in commercial
real estate, according to the book ACA's
First Fifty Years.
An early task that Sheppard undertook
during his term as ACA president was to
advocate for passage of an amendment to
the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to
cover the actions of attorneys just as it
did collectors.

He earned ACA's International Fellowship
of Certified Collection Executives
certification in 1977 and the James K.
Erickson Continuous Service Award in 1989.
Sheppard is survived by his three
daughters Adell Keen (Henry), Pam Hoskins
(Tom), and Valerie Wallace (Scott).

Sheppard presents the first Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship check to
student Holly Norcutt.
