Scott Dally was one of the most precious people I have ever known. We hired him when we opened Clinton's Jewelers in Neiman- Marcus original building . I had the pleasure of seeing him a couple of times last year when I was visiting my parents in Granbury. He will always be one of my favorite people. BC Byram Talbott Los Angeles, CA
We met Scott when he pitched our account in 1995 and, without a doubt Dally Advertising was selected as our agency of record. One of Scott's ad campaigns stands out in our mind. He recommended we run a full-page ad promoting our electricity in California because they were having brown-outs. The heading was “We'd like to shed a little light on an alternative source of energy for California companies.” We still have the framed ad that ran. We wish to express our sincere condolences to Linda and his family. He will always be remembered fondly! Plano Economic Development, Plano, Texas. (Sally, Lyn, Elaine and Linda)
Condolences to the Dally family.
Our family always loved a visit from the Texas Dally's.

Scott was my first cousin. His father Delbert was my dad Eugene's brother. While I didn't know him well, I can recall the family visits to Wisconsin as being very exciting. He will be missed and was too young to pass. A man of talent and drive for certain.
Without Scott I would not have my bestfriend, my husband and our six kiddos. Thank you so much for your son. I promise to take care of him! Elle, Sidney, Silas, Sophia, Dane and Ben will never forget their Papa Scott..I can close my eyes and see you smiling shaking your head with that twinkle in your eyes at all the crazy antics that come along with 6 grandchildren We love you.<3 xoxox
Scott hired me out of college and I was so nervous during the interview and so excited when I got the job. I loved my job and all the friends I made at Dally during the 70's. I remember Scott for being very compassionate and when my boyfriend's father died suddenly and i found out at the office, Scott told me to take the rest of the day off. He told me to take as much time as I needed, in spite of deadlines and the work load. Scott was a lot of fun and good to his employees.
Lynda, my prayers are with you and your family. I would love to reconnect with you.
I met Scott at the Fort Worth Club athletic center. I truly enjoyed getting to know him and we will all miss him greatly! I considered Scott a wonderful friend.
Scott introduced me to Rotary WFW. As things turned out I introduced him back to Rotary WFW when he came back to FTW. He handled the adv & pr for Ryan dealerships for many years. We had a lot of fun together. Whenever I think of Scott a grin comes over me. God bless.
Though I didn't work for Scott, back in the day, I did work for a few agencies competing with his talented team he assembled. What might they do next? Good solid stuff. He allowed his people to do great work with a balance and leadership of a master communicator.
Scott called on me a few years ago to assist him with one of the pro-bono projects he was passionate about. He treated me with the utmost respect, dignity and appreciation. I'm glad to have known him. My heart goes out to Lynda, and your whole family.
I met Scott on our road in Aledo and we discovered we both love dogs. I would run into him at Pet clinics and pet stores. I know he will be very missed by all and his beloved animals at home and on the ridge.
While I was in college studying Advertising, I remember attending the Fort Worth Addy's for the very first time. That year, Dally Advertising ROCKED the show.
It was not until several years later that I had the pleasure of working with Scott and Lynda as a print vendor. We worked together for many years on projects for Plano-EDB, Arlington-CVB, National Cowgirl Museum and Texas Wild! - Fort Worth Zoo. I was extremely proud of the projects we produced together.
In 2003, Lynda painted the most beautiful plate for my first born that I absolutely cherish and love.
Scott was creative, smart, kind and sometimes intimidating:-) Someone who I am proud to have known.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Lynda and the rest of his family (including his 4 - legged friends)!
It was such a pleasure working with Scott and his team at Dally Advertising. What a creative mind and fun personality he was and with Lynda on his team, they were the best! You'll be missed, Scott.
Scott and Paul went to my elementary school. We played on the same little league team and we played Gray Y football (Burton Hill Bombers). One Saturday morning at 7 am we had a game at Heights, my Mom and I pulled up to their house in our car, Scott opened the front door and their enormous grey dog came charging out into the yard. Every time I drive by that house, I think about Scott and that dog. Scott and Paul were good guys.
Scott always told me that if I did my job perfectly, it was adequate, but if I didn't do it perfectly, it was wrong! That became a standard that I've strived for my entire career. I was privileged to work with the best and the brightest; to have the newest technology (my first Apple!) and to work on more award-winning projects than ever.
I remember the late-night press checks, amazing office parties, photo shoots in Sedona and a very controversial ad for an engine supply company! There may have even been a martini lunch in there, as well. Certainly a trip or 3 to LeChardonnay.
I will be forever grateful to Scott and Lynda for their friendship, guidance and support. Erik, your father was an amazing man and I am proud to have known him.
Dear Paul, Lynn, Cris, and Bart, I am so sorry for your loss. Scott must have been a very special and wonderful man.
Sincerely, Kim Dacus Sherrill
Those years at Dally were amazing. Scott and Lynda were truly mentors and so patient with us youngsters. They helped to build the foundation of my career. I remain grateful; and Lynda, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Dally was a place we learned, worked hard, grew personally and in business and
had fun...all under the thoughtful teaching of Lynda and Scott. Thank you!
I started my career at Dally and am forever grateful to both Scott and Lynda. Scott had this great smile that he would give you when he was proud of your work. While he was quiet at times, I always knew he was deep in thought and that a great idea was brewing. I will always appreciate and thank Scott for giving me that opportunity. I really miss my Dally days...
I first met Scott when he was still in school and working for Dell. We were friends, fishing buddies and we worked together for many years.
Scott had a great talent for picking and hiring some of the best creative minds in the business and then making them still better under his leadership. I know some of the best work I ever produced was for Scott's agency.
Scott will be missed by many of us old-timers in the Fort Worth add business.
I worked at Dally Advertising for six and a half wonderful years and because of Scott Dally I had the most amazing job. Everyone at the Agency was encouraged, not only to do their best work, but more than that, Scott always enabled us to reach beyond our job descriptions. He was fond of saying that he hired talented people and then just stood back and let them do good work, but we all knew it was so much more than that. He generously, and sometimes bravely, provided an awesome springboard for our ideas. He unreservedly believed in us and helped us to believe we could do just about anything. That was just one of Scott Dally's most incredible skill set, but it was the one he gifted to each of his employees. The one we'll all have with us for life. Thanks, Scott. You made such an important difference in so many lives.
I always tell friends of mine that I had the best experience starting out in advertising. I got to learn from one of the greats, Scott Dally. It was because of the environment he created that made it so fun to be in the business. I cherish the times I worked with him, Lynda and the entire Dally gang. My sincere condolences to the family.
Scott Dally was a kind,genuine, extremely creative man and he will be missed. He made a huge mark on the advertising world out of little ole Fort Worth and I am proud to have known him through out my media career.
He pushed us all to be the best we could be. He and his awesome wife Lynda were the best bosses I ever worked for. I know I'm a better creative talent because of both of them. He always rewarded our hard work with the best Holiday parties, amazing food and so much more. Most people know Scott Dally as a tuff salesman. I knew him as a proud father to his son. A man who adored his amazing wife Lynda. A man who knew how to enjoy life and he shared it with everyone around him. He wasn't just a boss. He was like a dad. He took care us. He made Advertising fun. We will all miss you Scott Dally.

Scott hired me fresh out of college, and gave me plenty of freedom to learn through my mistakes. His floor filing system was a thing of wonder, and we all learned to tread lightly so as not to rearrange anything of importance. He was a unique spirit who will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Kelly and my deepest condolences to you and the family, Lynda.
Scott was one of my first introductions to how the Advertising business worked. He always had a knack for allowing people to do their best and was always appreciative when they did. He gave a lot of talented people their start and he will be remembered and missed.
When I went in to interview with Scott, he hired me on the spot. On my birthday. After we finished with the particulars, he asked, "Am I ever going to see you in that suit again?" When I told him probably not, he came back with, "Good, because you don't look too comfortable in it." Scott had an intuitive understanding not just of advertising, but also the people who create it. Along with that came generous helpings of respect and appreciation (along with the occasional "I don't think that's your best work). I am so grateful for his mentoring, but even more grateful for his friendship. Today I'm extremely sad by the news of his passing, but my memories of working with Scott will always bring a smile to my face.
Lynda, my prayers are with you during this difficult time. Scott's amazing life is inspiring and I'm so honored that you often share stories of Scott and the ad agency with me.
I am so sad to hear of Scott's passing. I worked for him from 1993 to 1996 and enjoyed the creative environment he fostered, his zest for life and his sense of humor. Love and hugs to his darling Lynda.
