Dallas enjoyed riding motorcycles with his favorite riding partner his son Bryce, camping, hiking, fishing, cooking with his love Jennifer, playing jokes on people, going to Park Resevoir with family and friends, watching the Cornhuskers and Raiders football games. He played hard and loved harder. His greatest accomplishment in life was being Bryce's dad. He loved his family and friends and would give you the shirt off his back. He was passionate in love and anger but ultimately he loved. He will be missed by his true friends and family. He never put on a front he was just Dallas and never felt that people understood him. He was an amazing son, dad and brother.
