Dallas was a good friend and always voiced his political views. I wish to express my sympathies to Amanda and Tony on your fathers passing. May he be in Gods arms and peace be with you both.

A Random Kindness

I have known Dallas for over half a century. I've chased parts in Dayton with him. I've flown with him. I've laughed with him (and at him! ). I've listened to unbelievable stories and taken sage advice. I've listened to his pride in his children. He called me 'Bubby'; one of a few people that I would allow to call me that. You see, I am the person I am today because of Dallas Windsor, arguably because of a random act of kindness in 1965.

In mid-summer, 1965, I was in USAF basic training in San Antonio, TX. Dallas was stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. I was homesick . . . and ready to take a long, unauthorized walk. One Sunday afternoon, I was called to the Day Room, I had a visitor, it was Dallas. He'd heard I was at Lackland AFB and took the time to stop by and see me. In itself, no big deal, but it helped to get me past a bad bump in the road.

That random act of kindness enabled me to have a great military experience and point me in the direction of my future career. Virtually everything in my life after that Sunday visit is the result of that visit.

Some weeks ago, while visiting Dallas in Lima, I held his hand and said a prayer, if not for recovery, then for a peaceful passing. I trust that his final days and hours were peaceful. I ask our Lord and Savior to look on Dallas with favor and give him eternal rest.

It is only now these several months later (December 2014) that I am learning of your loss of Dallas. I am saddened because he was a dear friend of my Brother, Joe who also passed away this year in March. And in the agony and pain of the loss of a dear Brother, Dallas befriended me as a distant Brother, remembering Joe and offering his sympathies with a number of phone calls from Sidney to New York, beyond what anyone would expect for someone I only new through the visits Joe had with Dallas and their years together in school in Sidney. I know that Joe saw a dear friend in Dallas and one that lasted a lifetime. Following Joe's death, Dallas sent me a picture of the elementary school class when both of them were both very cute guys.

I extend my sincerest sympathies and condolences to all those who knew and loved Dallas. My heart is heavy over his loss.
