Dallas and my son were best buds. I remember meeting him when he was a teenager and had his Bieber hair. He was always such a gentleman to me and my daughter. When you saw him you couldn't help but smile because he had a light in him. The world won't shine quite as bright without him but Heaven will shine brighter for sure. 💖

Dallas was the oldest of all his cousins on Larry’s side the family. They each have endless stories to tell of their adventures and memories of cousin Dallas. From the day he was born, he’s had a special place in my heart. Unlike most young people, even as a young adult, he never outgrew giving a me a big genuine hug each time I saw him. It’s going to be so tough for us to carry on without him. Our lives will be forever been changed, but one thing is certain, we’re all better people for having that sweet spirited young man in our family. His natural golden glow and that smile that was always so effortlessly placed on his face will be dearly missed by us all. We love our Dallas ~ Aunt Sissy & the Harrelson Cousins

Dana and Larry I am so sorry to hear about Dallas. I'm friends with Kim and met yall and Dallas down at Ocean Lakes. Dallas and my son Paul Shawn met up and he came over several times but him and Paul Shawn stayed connected on social media. Life is never easy and I cant imagine what yall are doing through right now. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are sent for comfort and peace in this time of sorrow. God Bless!

I met Dallas a few years back when I still lived in Atlanta, the day I moved back to SC we became best friends. We were always getting into something that summer whether it was yard work, car work, and anything else we could come up with. There was never a dull moment, I mean never. He was always there for me with whatever I was going through. He’s my brother, and nothing could ever change that. And I could never thank him enough for all his help. Rest in peace to my brother, will forever love and miss you Dallas.

Dallas came into our lives, first through my son, they were in class together in 5th grade! Tanner came home talking about this funny kid that would always say “Oh Junk” he would bring home stories about him occasionally! His mother and I were destined to be besties long before we knew it! Time passed and our friendship bloomed and we spent a lot of time together! In those times I got to hear so many stories of Dallas and of Whit! Dana loves her babies more than life it’s self! Dallas was funny, strong willed, a hard worker and always took time out to talk to me when I saw him anywhere! I loved that kid and he always made a point to let me know that he cared, even if it meant pulling over in a parking lot to get out of the car and tell me he loved me and hug me! I watched him grow up and mature and make his family proud! He loved his family and friends and we all just knew it!! You will always be missed!!!!!!!!!!

Dearest Hicks & Kalin family,

I never had the pleasure of meeting your sweet boy, but I did grow up with his mother Dana and Uncle Barry. There is no doubt in my mind he was a good soul because I know the souls he came from. God bless you all and hoping you find comfort and peace in this most difficult time.

Love always,

Dana, Larry & Whitleigh,

My earliest memory of Dallas is the inquisitive, extremely busy blonde boy in playgroup. He never seemed to run out of questions or energy. The last time I spoke to Dallas was a few years ago. We must have chatted for a good half hour. He spoke about all of you with warmth and love. He talked about rescuing animals and his desire to start a landscaping business. What a decent, kind young man. I don’t have any words to dull your pain or lessen your sorrow but please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
