Dallas R. "Dally" Swafford Jr., age 67 passed away Thursday February 27, 2020. Dallas was born in Bloomington, Indiana January 31, 1953 to Madonna and Dallas Swafford Sr. He attended Bloomington High School, he then joined the army in July of 1972 where he served until he was honorably discharged in 1976. He spent the majority of his deployment in Germany. Dally went on to spend several years working with Madonna at the Flower Patch. He then worked at Vectren until retirement. Dallas was an active member of the American Legion, Moose Lodge, and Amvets where he was a well loved patron.
Dallas was a man that could light up a room and be the life of a party. He had a big heart and would do anything for anybody and loved spending time with his vast groups of friends, family, and his grandbabies. He loved his dog Tucker who was his whole world. He enjoyed golf. He worked hard maintaining his flower beds after his moms passing and took great pride in his yard.
Dallas was preceded in death by both parents, Madonna and Dallas Sr, his brother in law Tom Tilley, and his beloved dog Houston. Survivors include his sister Linda Tilley, his dog Tucker, and the many lucky people whom his life has touched.
Come celebrate his life and share your memories. Visitation will be Monday, March 2nd from 4-8pm and Tuesday, March 3rd from 10-11 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 E.

My heart is so sad. I will not be able to attend any of the services for Dallas, but I will definitely be there in spirit. I've known Dallas many years, first meeting him when I was a waitress at the American Legion. What a sweetheart of a man he was! We have shared many memorable times together. We've laughed and cried together. We've drank and danced together. We've had many conversations related to many topics. Dallas was a man who was gentle, kind, funny, and would literally give you the shirt off his back. Dallas, you will be missed by so very many. RIP Dally! Love and Hugs to Linda and the many people who will miss him!

Dallas and I were friends an classmates. We also used the flower shop for ordering flowers. He’ll be greatly missed. Won’t be the same going into the legend and not seeing him. I live out of town but wasn’t in there that often but when I did he would be there. He will missed. My heart and thoughts are with you.
