Dallas Kenneth Roadifer

Dallas Kenneth Roadifer, 86, from Sundance, Wyoming, passed away on Sunday, October 31, 2021, at the Fort Meade VA Medical Center in Sturgis, South Dakota.

Dallas was born on April 24, 1935, in Sundance to Clyde and Nettie (Humphrey) Roadifer on the family homestead. He attended local country schools and graduated from Old Stoney in Sundance.

Dallas served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. He then married Delores (Dee) Bertalot on February 10, 1962.
