Dallas was a kind and generous soul who helped me repeatedly at Green Hall. It seemed there was nothing he couldn’t do or wouldn’t do to help us. His smile was there every time he visited. May he experience peace and love.

Dallas was my buddy, we worked together about every weekday for 3 years. He was old school, he wouldn't show you how to do something unless you were really gonna listen. He taught me so much in the trades. We had fun too, listening to John Prine a folk singer. Dallas fell in love with this music towards this year and listened to it constantly. I miss him clocking in with a song, belting it out down the hallway at work. He was compassionate, He struggled in life for many years, but he believed that God's grace was enough for him. He had the courage to take his eyes off himself and look to Jesus his savior. I will miss him, I never knew I would miss him this much.

I did not know Dallas but I know his son and reading others memories allows me to see where Richard gets his kind hearted nature. I lost my dad earlier this year and know how lonely my mother has been. What a blessing to know that there is a place God has prepared for His children where we can be reunited with our loved ones.

I barely knew Dallas, but at the same time, it felt like I did know him. He fixed many things in my apartment for me, and I specifically remember the beginning of this semester.. He came over and was confused that there were so many maintenance issues with my apartment, because he thought he went through the whole building prior to students moving in, but somehow he missed my apartment. We ended up just talking about life stuff and laughing at things I can't quite remember, but he was so easy to talk to, and I could tell he really loved the job that he did, and he had a great spirit about him. I wish all of his friends and family my deepest condolences in this difficult time, he will surely be missed.

One of the first people I met at Chowan University was Dallas. He poked his head in the door and smiled, "Hey, there! You are new around these parts." He introduced himself and it went from there. HE WAS ALWAYS there for us, no matter what the problem was. While we needed his expertise, he also enjoyed and needed his kindness and humor. Since his wife passed, he was not the same. I'm happy that Dallas is where he wanted to be. DALLAS, you made you mark and we won't forget you. Much love and many prayers for all the family.

Dallas helped teach me how to play guitar and we played and sang together for the Lord on many occasions. Beautiful voice and a beautiful spirit. He will be missed by many. Rest in peace Dallas.
