Pete A. Dallas
September 27, 1940 — November 12, 2013
Pete A. Dallas, 73, a native of Morgan City and a resident of Belle River, passed away peacefully at his residence on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, surrounded by his family and loving wife of 15 years, Dolores Breaux Dallas.
Pete’s love for helping people brought him into law enforcement for over 30 years with the Morgan City Police Department and the St. Martin Parish Sheriff Department. While he was with the sheriff’s office he served as a public relations liaison and a marine patrol officer. Pete was also the first animal control warden for the Morgan City Police Department. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. Pete also served his country for six years in the U.S. Navy and was a proud veteran and member of the VFW in Pierre Part. A couple of his greatest hobbies were spending time at his camp fishing and shrimping whenever he had the chance. Pete enjoyed the time he spent with family and friends telling jokes and entertaining them even when it meant playing the accordion and harmonica. Pete never met a stranger and could make friends instantly. Because Pete was so loved and like by many he will be deeply missed.
“Pete we love you and we will never forget you.”
Pete is survived by his beloved wife, Dolores B. Dallas of Belle River; four children, Danielle and Drew Sparks, both of Belle River, and Mitch Ringer and Michelle Collins, both of Ogallala, Neb.; three grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two nieces, Marjorie Soumeillan Taylor and Marie Lynn Soumeillan Olmos; two nephews, Richard Giroir Jr. and Raymond Soumeillan Jr.; two brothers, Tony and Johnny Dallas; and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews.
