His love of the outdoors and sports had him participating in; hiking, camping, golfing, snowboarding, soccer, football, lacrosse, volleyball and hockey. Dallas loved music and spent hours teaching himself to play the piano. In his early high school years Dallas’s journey as an entrepreneur began by selling pop and chips out of his locker to his classmates. His next step was selling magazines door to door where he soon discovered that he was a natural salesman. His “Need for Speed” got him building and selling motorized pedal bikes.

Dallas was one of my best friends in high school. I lost touch with him over the past few years but I still think about him often and tell stories of him all the time. To this day I've never met anyone who gave so much time, love and care to others like Dal did. I had the pleasure of being his neighbor after he moved in with his grandparents so we spent lots of time between that, school and being the outsiders on the guys team. Wishing I could go back in time and tell him how much his friendship meant to me. So grateful to have had such an amazing friend. Rest in peace Dallio. Thanks for all the laughs and great memories (taste the rainbow) love you my friend.

Difficult to see this in the paper this morning! I met Dallas in 2009 building a six plex in Vernon. He was in school and I had just lost my job of 12 years at the glass plant in lavington. It was a great experience for me to be retrained alongside a bunch of young kids learning at the same time. Dallas was always the jokester making everyone smile! I always enjoyed working with him he was a special young man. Go with God my friend!
