We will remember Dallas as a kind, friendly, man…a good listener and a strong Christian. He was very generous with his wonderful, welcoming smile!

I had the very good fortune of working with Dalyce for a few years at NDOR before his retirement. A true gentleman, he was witty, engaging and thoughtful. He treated people with respect and kindness. I was blessed to know Dalyce as a co-worker and friend. We met regularly for lunch after he retired. I will miss him a great deal.

I have known Dal for many years as we were both long time members of Toastmasters. He and his wife were both in my first club back in January of 1998. We are also long time members of Westminster Presbyterian Church. I am proud to have known both Dal and his wife.

I had the privilege of being Dal’s pastor for only two years, but found Dal to be one of the faithful. He was always supportive, kind, engaged, present and affirming. He will be greatly missed. You were blessed to call him your Dad.

– Rev. Dr. Val Putnam
