He was the son of the late Dorothy Jane Scalf and was born in Eccles on November 27th, 1954. In addition to his loving mother, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Dean Scalf, Randall Scalf, Danny Bowling, Brian Bowling, and father-in-law, Shirley Gray.

Dallas was a retired foreman out of the Laborers Local Union 453 working for Gable, DeFelice and Halloway.
Dallas loved to live life to the fullest and was always happy. Even in the worst circumstances he would always proclaim that he was just doing fine. He was even compared to Superman because no matter how bad the situation was, he always overcame it.
Everyone knew that Dallas valued his friendships, because they knew he would be there to help or talk as long you needed to. Dallas loved being on the roads, fresh air, sunshine, his family and friends. He was just that way!

Committal services will be Monday, November 26th, at 3:00pm in the Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens at Prosperity.
