July 7, 1939 – January 4, 2020
Frank Dally was born in 1939, in Ventura, California, to Lawrence and Ethel Dally. He was part of a large family of beloved cousins, aunts and uncles, and his brother Peachy. Frank served for 8 years in the Army Reserves. He worked hard all of his life, and was known by all for his strength and willingness to help anyone in need. He graduated from Barber College in 1964 and became one of the premier Men's Hair Stylists in the L.A. area. Frank met his wife Roni in 1975, and they shared 45 years together. They made it their life’s work to make a home for children needing a helping hand. Frank was a devoted and protective father figure to many. Since moving to Deer Park in 1990 Frank has been a well known figure in the Deer Park area. His deep conviction that an intact family could heal much of this world’s woes led him to be involved in various men’s groups focusing on fatherhood and strengthening the family unit. He was a strong believer in the Lord. Frank is survived by his wife Roni, children: Moses, Isaac, Adam, and Lacey(Kenny Ayers,) Desiree Lancaster; numerous grandchildren, (including those in Deer Park - Kaitlyn, Kyla, Kira, Kimmy, Emi, and Kaleb,) his devoted helper/sidekick Emma Hill, brother Mike Dally, numerous brothers/sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces and nephews, and many dear, dear friends. Frank loved his family and friends deeply, and will be sorely missed by all. Frank went peacefully home to the Lord on January 4, 2020. He was laid to rest at Woodland Cemetery n Deer Park. A service celebrating his life will be held on January 24 at 2pm at Crossover Church, 16825 N. Newport Hwy, Mead, Washington.

Frank always had time to stop and visit.
He welcomed me into his home more times than I can count.
At a time when I needed a place to be quiet and share his sweet wife's company.
He was one cool dude. Right, man?
Love how he always sounded like he was still living and loving in the sixties.
He will be missed.
The world is a better place because he shared it with so many.
Roni, you were and always will be the rare treasure that graced his life.
You helped him to be the kind man that he was.
I will forever be grateful to both of you.

I remember when Frank and Roni went to church at Clayton Community Church he always had a big smile on his face never missing to say hi to everyone he saw.
and to you Roni I am so sorry for your loss.

Here's are some bitter truths; life requires death, love requires loss, and joy requires sorrow. I don't know, when I get to heaven this might be the one question I ask. “What the heck, Lord?”
Our local grocery store gives out free balloons. I overheard a little girl asking her daddy “ Can I have a balloon?” “No.” He told her. “You'll lose it and then you'll end up in tears”
I get it. In my flesh I can certainly see this dad’s point. Don't give your children things that will break their hearts!
Our Lord God sees this differently. It's a strange thing that I'm not sure I understand. He purposely, intentionally gives us things He knows will hurt us; life, joy, love. He wants this so much for us that He sacrificed His one and only child so that we could have these things. How strange, that kind of love.
One of our Christmas decorations is a big glass snow globe with a Nativity scene inside. My grand baby wanted to see the snow fall in it. You’d have to turn it upside down and shake it. I told her no. It could break. “Will baby Jesus break?” She asked.
Yes. He will. He will break. And He will gladly break just so we can see the snow fall. He will break.
A wise woman once told me “Love is a willingness to let your heart be broken.” How greater is the love that is willing to let ones children's hearts be broken. How great us the love that says, “yes, you may have the balloon. You may shake the snow globe. You may take the risk, experience the joy, risk the heartbreak. And when your heart breaks, I will be here to comfort you.”
There are two great loves that I know, Roni and Frank, and the Lord God and His children. I am blessed beyond measure to have been a part of these. Good bye, Frank Dally. Thank you for giving my sister the joy of allowing her heart to love be to the point of being broken. Thank you, Lord God for being there to comfort her when it does.

Frank was a faithful man of God. He was a light in this world. He is now rejoicing with the God of Yisra'el, and with our Messiah Yeshua. He has a beautiful family whom I pray Adonai comforts among the other mourners of Tziyon. In Yeshua's name.
