Dallas was a legend in the pipeline industry and he was a great friend. I worked offshore with him in 1979 and he got me my first inspection job in 1982. I will really miss him he did a lot for me over the years

Sincere Condolences to The Family of Dallas. We had the pleasure of meeting him years ago. Always enjoyed our talks! Rest In Peace Dallas!
A man who will be missed by many. I am a better man from having known Dallas. Our sympathies and prayers go out to his entire family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Sis and family . Love to all .
I have Dallas to thank for getting my career started in the Natural Gas Industry more than 23 years ago. I also had the great pleasure to work closely on one of the most unique projects the Company has done. The knowledge that I gained from Dallas has made me a better employee, leader and person. Dallas will be greatly missed and I am fortunate to know him and have him as a friend.
I was once asked is Dallas your friend or stepdad. Here is how I answered that question. He was both He made me the man I am today When him and my mom divorced. Till the day he died he introduced me as his son. Anybody can father a child but not everyone can be a dad. He was my hero.
One my my oldest friends. Love you all so very much.
When I got home Saturday about 130 Mr Dallas was standing on the road looking at his property. When I got out of my truck her said hey Gerald do you have a minute. I said yes sir and we talked about the property and his plans for the house , driveway and pond ....... We have talked a few times before. I was shocked when I heard he passed Saturday night. I’m Sure going to miss you Mr Dallas. Rest easy
So sorry for your loss Debbie! Praying for you all! May God see you through this time and give you peace.
My sincerest condolences.
From a neighbor to a dear friend. Dallas was many things to many people. He is very loved and very respected. He shall be missed. My deepest condolences to Ms. Debbie and the family.
Dallas was and always will be my mentor, colleague and dearly missed friend. He also started my career in the natural gas business. God Bless him and the family.
I have scores of fond memories of Dallas all the way back to when we were kids playing during the hot summers at MaBurg’s house in the Sabine River bottom in Shelby County. Through our lives, Dallas has always been one of my favorite cousins, along with his sisters. Countless times I’ve reached out to Dallas for advice and guidance , as our careers were similar. Cousin , God Bless, I’ll see you on the ROW in Heaven.
Dallas was one of the good ones. I first met him through my Stepdad, Alvie Clark back in the early '90s. His sense of humor and quick wit made him fun to be around...and who could ever forget the stories. He'll be missed, but the impression he left on so many will be felt forever.
Mr. Dallas certainly was loved and respected by everyone who knew him. From the young'uns who called him a Rock Star to the old ones like me who simply called him the very Best of the Best. He will truly be missed.but I can't help but think he's sitting on a cooler strumming his guitar. And Miss Debbie, we all think the world of you too, and you are forever in our hearts and prayers.
Worked with Dallas on many projects over many years, good, bad but always together. It’s five o’clock somewhere....

Met Dallas at AGIS technology. He was a pleasure to be around and talk to. His knowledge in so many areas of life is a real loss. Fond memories
I had the pleasure of working with Dallas on the New Jersey/New York Spectra Energy Project. I would tend to think that it was probably one of the most difficult natural gas projects that has ever been attempted and accomplished!!! Dallas was instrumental in managing the project. He had forgot more about pipeline than most of us will ever know!!! I was fortunate to live 2 spaces down from him and Debbie in the same trailer park in Carteret N.J. throughout the duration of the Project. We had many fun times after work hours and weekends playing guitars and singing songs! Dallas had a great repertoire of songs that he could play and sing. It was amazing how many songs he knew!!! Over the years since then, I have periodically kept in touch with him just to see what he was doing because he was such a great person. My condolences go out to Debbie and all of the family. He will be sadly missed. RIP Dallas Burgess.

Dallas was a true mentor and a great friend that I had the pleasure to me and work with in 2008 -2010 on a large pipeline and station project up in NY & NJ We stayed in contact there after Dallas was a true friend on and off the job and always would share his knowledge and experiences with me.
