New Middletown – Private family services were held for Dallas R. Hayes, Jr., who went home to be with his Lord Jesus Christ on Friday, September 15. He was surrounded by his family when he passed at his residence.
Dallas was born July 31, 1955, in Pittsburgh, a son of Dallas R. and Ida DezioLozier Hayes, Sr. His family moved to the area in 1968. He married the love of his life, Darlene Miller on September 23, 1978. He was the owner and operator of Hayes D & D Towing from 1978 until 2014. Dallas was also a heavy equipment operator for the Operating Engineers Local 66 for over 40 years until his retirement in 2021.
Dallas enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. His grandchildren adoringly called him PePaw and he was known to his nieces as Uncle E-Bug. He was an avid motorsports enthusiast and raced stock cars from 1974 to 1987. His son, Dustin, followed in his footsteps from 1997 to 2012. Dallas enjoyed fabricating race cars and building racing engines his entire life. In addition to his own equipment, he built and maintained several karts and racecars for other racers. He typically put his needs aside and was always selflessly willing to lend a hand to others.
Dallas leaves his wife, Darlene, his sons Dallas (Tiffany) Hayes III of New Waterford and Dustin Hayes of New Middletown, a sister Patricia (Dennis Deemer) Barnes of New Middletown; five grandchildren Hayden, Triston, Colton, Mia Hayes and Madison Harker; nephew Michael Miller three nieces Lacie (Scott) Harman, and Samantha Barnes, Bonnie Miller and his beloved dog, Bailey, and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Dallas’ family wishes to thank his nurse, Kayla, from Promedica Hospice.
