Dallas was the ever great outdoorsman. He loved walking along the railroad tracks in Helper and riding his ATV's with his grandchildren in tow. He had a passion for tying flies, fishing and camping. Dallas always had something up his sleeve. He was constantly creating new, useful inventions around the house and working with his hands. He could be mischievous with too much free time, but always had a good sense of humor.

Dallas worked at many different jobs over the years, usually three jobs at a time to support his family. In 1980, he retired from D&RGW Railroad as switchman. He'll most be remembered as a school bus driver and driving the kids around was the highlight of his day.

Dallas was a member of the Catholic Church and a loyal 4th Degree Knight of Columbus. He was also a member of S.N.P.J. Lodge #113 for 70 years.

He is survived by his daughters, Rose Marie "Baby Rue" (Chuck) Hinton, Betty "Spaghet" Pope, Pat "Squeeker" (Dane) Larsen; caregiver and angel, Annie Gardner; grandchildren, Jill, Dane (Angela) Larsen, Terry (Mary) Hinton, Tammie Parcells, Dan (Toni) Haugen; nine great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, wife, brother, Craig; sisters, Nelsene Rich and Buehl Maxfield; and a grandson, Dean Hinton.
