I could always count on great conversations with Dallis. He was more than a neighbor. Dallis was a great American who loved and served his country. I am proud to have had a friendship with someone I truly respected. I hope Louise, Darren, and family take comfort knowing Dallis was a great man a symbol of a man of his generation! I am saddened and my thoughts are with the family.
