Dallas had an unpleasant past with many people over the years but he was still loved by many.
He had a kidding personality, a big smile, and was free spirited.
In the last year Dallas was trying to improve his life and get on a positive track.
He had a vision of moving to a new town, buying a house, and turning over a new leaf.
He will be greatly missed.
Dallas had a love for Harley-Davidson motorcycles from the time he was a baby.
As a young boy, he and his sister would take turns riding their Billy Goat motorcycle up and down the streets of Lebec.
Dallas’ love grew from there.
In his teenage years, he moved on to Honda dirt bikes and as a young adult he ventured to Harleys.
Dallas would lend a helping hand to anyone who broke down or help find parts they needed to make necessary repairs.
Dallas was kind and thoughtful.
Dallas was currently not married, but his past wives were Jeannine Lockhart (Dallas IV’s mother) and Kathleen Evans (Marie, Dewey, and Austin’s mother). Vicki Bourque is the mother of his twins Colt and Lacey.
Dallas’ wishes were to be cremated.

Angela Merie Leman passed into God's domain far too soon for those of us who knew and loved her.
However our Lord is merciful and knew her suffering and pain was too much for her now frail body, and called her home.
She was born in Escondido, Californbia to Gloria Ann and John J. Fitzgerald.
She was a California native and also lived in Washington State for a time.
She was a gentle and loving soul who touched everyone, and was loved by all that she met.
She had lived here for over 20 years.
She is survived by her three daughters: Roberta Leigh and her husband Dale, grandsons Braiden and Derek Braaten of Monroe, Washington; Marisa Ann Leman and Megan Merie Leman of Frazier Park. She is also survived by sister Celine and brother-in-law Dana Rickman of Quartz Hill, and sister Crystal Fitzgerald of Frazier Park.

Cody Alan Gibson
April 29, 1988 - April 28, 2007
One day before the celebration of our beautiful boy's 19th year, he was taken away—called home.
Sadly, he died in his sleep, unexpectedly, tragically and so sorrowfully for all who knew him and so loved him.
We will forever miss him.
Please join us for the celebration of Cody's life Saturday, May 12 at 11:00 a.m., in the Frazier Mountain High School Auditorium.
To those who knew Cody, he was in the spotlight, at the pinnacle of his life.
Within the last six months he had achieved major steps toward his electrical career, receiving his certification just three days before he died.
He had more self-pride than most 18 year olds could dream of.
Cody was born and raised in Frazier Park, attending our Mountain Community elementary, middle and high schools.
He was always an accomplished, above-average student.
He didn't strive for straight A's, he just achieved them.
In his junior year he became one of the quarterbacks for our Falcons football team—Gibson, #2.
Cody's Papa Dave always thought he would be the next John Elway.
With his interests ever changing, he looked toward the military and put forth all of his efforts to excel in his high school academic requirements and culminated early.
Iraq did not need him (thank God, for his mom and grandma thought they may lose him to the war), and he turned his interest to his electrical vocation instead.
In fact, the same day he laid down to sleep forever, he had just purchased a new truck for himself and paid cash for it.
That afternoon was "the best day of his life."
He was on top of the world, so proud of himself, as we are so proud of him.
We will love him and miss him every day for the rest of our lives.
To all, if you ever loved Cody, as we do, then you have been truly blessed.
Cody is survived by his mother and stepfather Kristy (Trimble) Cook and Bill Cook; his father and stepmother Troy and Cindy Gibson; his brother and best friend Kyle Gibson; his grandparents David and Roni Gibson and Sue Light.
He is also survived by his new siblings, Breanna and Levi Gibson and Tristen and Tessa Cook; by his stepbrother and friend Chris Holdgrafer and his half brother Nathan Taylor Gibson.
He also leaves behind his Aunt Dana and Uncle Danny Overs, his Aunt Kim and Uncle John Dalton and his Uncle Kevin and Aunt Jackie Trimble, along with his cousins Samantha Dalton, Cristian and Kayla Trimble.
Cody was preceded in death and escorted into Heaven by his grandfather Richard Trimble.
