Dallas worked a wide array of jobs until 2006, when he started his own laundry business in Sauk Centre with Doris and their daughters, Cassie (Hamilton) Olmsheid and Kayla (Hamilton) Klejeski. Dallas enjoyed playing with all his grandchildren, having bonfires and watching old westerns in his spare time.
