Obituary

Mr. Leonard George “Lenny” Dallas was called home on July 24, 2019. He was born on May 7,1967, in Lake City, South Carolina, to Berthena Wiggins and the late George Dallas. Leonard spent his childhood and early adult life in New York, where he attended public school and graduated from August Martin High School in New York. He later attended La Guardia Community College and over the years accumulated numerous credits and certifications.

Leonard decided that he needed a change of scenery and relocated to Newport News, Virginia, where he connected with and became a member of Emmanuel Grace Baptist Church. He was very people- oriented and spent much of his life helping others. This was reflected in his work history; his last employment was with Thomas Nelson Community College.

He was active with the Ushers’ Ministry and other “helping” ministries at Emmanuel Grace Baptist Church. He loved his church and felt at home there.

Leonard was preceded in death by his father, George Dallas; an uncle, Harold McIntosh; an aunt, Buena Kirby; and nephew, Shatique Gettis.

Surviving: his loving mother, Berthena Wiggins of Mauldin, SC; his brother, Anthony McIntosh of Newark, NJ; three sisters, Valerie Hannah of Lake City, SC, and Gerena Conyers and Tatum Bostick, both of Sumter, SC; a special niece, Sp. Sgt. Shania G. Wilson; four aunts, Margaret McFadden of Tuberville, SC, Dr. Emma Owens of Mauldin, SC, Bettye King of Newport News, VA and Pearl Graham (Charles) of Effingham, SC; a special friend, Shelia Taylor of Newport News, VA; his “fur” son, Bruiser; many cousins and other family and friends.

Leonard spent memorable times at his Aunt Betty’s home where he came to love Sharon and Michael King as his brother and sister.

Leonard will be forever missed. He had a laugh that would instantly make you feel better no matter what you were going through. He had a personality that some would consider to be larger than life. No matter who he crossed paths with, he left a lasting impression. He never allowed negative things to get him down, not even cancer. Shockingly, he laughed about that as well. No matter the situation, he always looked at things through positive lenses. Leonard was a fighter who fought until his last breath. He has completed his assignment on this side and has gone on to receive his heavenly reward. He will be missed, but we know we will meet again.

A funeral service was held at 2:00 pm Wednesday, July 31,2019, at Emmanuel Grace Baptist Church, 3301 Kecoughtan Road, Hampton, VA 23661.
