Mr. Garman was easy to be around. He was very approachable just a short time after I got to know him through other members of his family. He was an upbeat, positive, optimistic and friendly man who didn't hesitate to share his feelings of devotion and dedication to God, Jesus and the Holy Word of the Bible. I enjoyed spending time with him and his extended family, often on a Sunday evening and sometimes at his and his wife's home, where we ate a good meal, watched a movie or played some board or card games. Usually some laughs ensued, particularly when many of us got deeply involved and hyped-up by a game. Good times, so they were! He was a very good man and I will be one of many who will miss seeing him around.

Saddened to see the loss of Dallas. My understanding was that he and my grandfather Preston were very close. He left a lasting impression on my life as a Sunday School teacher and wish I could have spent time with him in hearing those stories. Sending Prayers to the family in the loss of a great man.

'Big Dal' as some of us liked to call him (Uncle Dallas) was such a joy to be around. We always had some good laughs together. His laugh, his smile, his gracious spirit were just an outward expression of what really made him as a man and that was his hope and trust in his savior Jesus Christ. His positive outlook on life was because he knew he was only passing through this earth on his journey to the Celestial City. We grieve, but not as others who have no hope ... and so shall we always be with the Lord. May the Lord give comfort and peace to the family.

As I think about people who have made an impact in my life, Dallas Garman would be on that list. After I answered the call to pastoral ministry I would see him at the annual conference sessions. He would always tell people how I had been in his Sunday School class as a young boy and assure them I was a "good boy" and never caused any trouble. Seeing that I had been in his class back in the 60's I think maybe his memory was a bit faulty, or he was just being kind as it was his nature to be kind. Mr. Garman had a tremendous influence over many others like me through the years. You will all be in our prayers.

Uncle Dallas was a kind & sweet spirited man .... those who knew him also knew that he loved the Lord and others. He didn’t need a lot of material things and he and Aunt Nancy lived a simple life of faith in God and love for each other for 70 + years! A true legacy .... we will meet again ✝️
