Dallas joined the Navy in 1960 and was stationed in San Diego, CA while he was there, he met Ruth Ann Ellison and married her on May 11th, 1963. Following the birth of their first child, Rhonda, Dallas left the Navy in 1964 and moved his family back to Pampa TX where they had twins Stephen and Stephanie on their second anniversary. Dallas began his career at Phillips Petroleum as a welder where he later had to make the difficult decision to relocate his family to Oklahoma to continue his career as a Pipeline inspector for Phillips until he retired in 2001.
His hobbies included, slow-pitch softball, playing, coaching and umpiring. He was an avid golfer and was very active in his church. He truly enjoyed sharing his testimony about God’s hand on his life and always ended it singing his favorite song “I’ve Never Been This Homesick Before”. Dallas made his home a safe haven with a feeling of protection for many over the years, never turning anyone away. In 1980 Michelle Sargent Mowdy and Tonya Sargent-Quintana joined the family and were raised as his own daughters. Later, he willingly took Jeffery and Joshua into his home while his son was deployed. His home was open to many, too numerous to count. Big “D” or Uncle Dallas, as so many called him, will be dearly missed by many friends and family. Dallas will be laid to rest on Thursday, April 7th, 2022 at 1:30 pm at Frontline Ministries in Kingfisher, OK with graveside services following at Kingfisher Cemetery.
