A Time to Love
Dallas, affectionately called "Clampper", was a people person. He never met a stranger. If there's something he could do for you, he would do it.

He enjoyed mowing lawns, washing cars, walking and dancing with his grandchildren. He loved watching television shows and sport. His favorite football team was the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas fought a good fight, ran the race, and won the battle so God knelt down and whispered, "Come Home" into the ears of His beloved son Dallas, who obediently surrendered his soul to be with the heavenly "Host of Angels" on Friday, September 3, 2021 at the McLeod Regional Medical Center in Florence, South Carolina.
