November 23, 1945 - September 25, 2022
Dallis Jones was born November 23, 1945 in Cincinnati, Ohio and passed away at Wellspring Health Center Nursing Home on September 25, 2022 in Cincinnati. Dallis was the only child born to Fred and Arnetta Jones.
Dallis grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and was educated in the Cincinnati Public Schools. He later enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1973 where he served seven years as a marksman before his Honorable Discharge in 1980.
Dallis married Iris Collins in 1977 and three children were born to this union - Dallis, Jr., Scott Alexander and he gained a bonus-daughter, Dorothy, which he adopted. The couple was later divorced.
Dallis pursued a career with the United States Postal Service. During this time, he met Dorothy Laws and the couple were married in 1988, where Dallis gained another bonus-daughter, Alice Laws. After working for the company for over 15 years, Dallis retired from the United States Postal Service.
Dallis was a calm and quiet-spirited man, with a great big heart. He would help just about anybody who needed him. His sisters remember him often asking the question, “You need a piece of change?” And if you needed it, Dallis would most likely help you out. Because that’s just the kind of man he was.
