Dallas Darold Henning, the son of Bernhard and Loretta (Werner) Henning, was born March 12, 1934 in Wabasso. He grew up in the Wabasso area and received his formal education at Wabasso High School and Mankato Vocational Technical College. Dallas was inducted into the United States Army on August 25, 1954 and was stationed in Germany. Following his honorable discharge on August 6, 1957, Dallas returned to Redwood County.

On March 2, 1963, Dallas married Marylin M. Kolp and they made their home in Redwood Falls. Dallas was a front-end alignment mechanic for the Burris, Fran Dryer, and H&L Motors car dealerships until he became totally disabled due to a work-related car accident in 1969. Dallas was a member of Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wabasso and was a Gold Member of the V.F.W. He enjoyed antique cars, playing cards, watching sports – particularly the Vikings, photography, and jigsaw puzzles.

Dallas is survived by his wife, Marylin of Redwood Falls; children Dawn (William) White of Rochester, Donna Henning of Redwood Falls, and Darrell (Tonya) Henning of Redwood Falls; grandchildren Jessica (Eric) Scheuerlein of Redwood Falls, and Sultanna, Dakota, and Mylee White of Rochester; and great-grandchildren Levi and Aleah Scheuerlein, and baby-on-the-way. Also surviving are his brother Ivan (Deanne) Henning of Waunakee, Wisconsin; and sisters-in-law Lorraine Henning and Theresa Kolp both of Redwood Falls, Carolyn Henning of Wabasso, and Lois (Roger) Just of Park Rapids.

He was preceded in death by his brothers Lavern, Leland, and Marlan Henning; and brother-in-law Ralph Kolp.

Blessed be his memory.
