Obituary

Dallas Fenster was born in California on October 25, 1944, and was adopted in January, 1945 by Harry and Eleanor Fenster. He passed on February 28, 2019. As a young child his family moved to Yuma, Colorado where Dallas was raised. He played on the 1960 Yuma High School Colorado State Championship football team, and would later attend Kearney State College, where he was also part their 1963 National Championship football team. At Kearney, Dallas met and married Carol Barney, his wife of 53 years. After college, Dallas and Carol resided in Nebraska where he worked in the transportation industry and farmed for most of his career.

To the union, Dallas and Carol had five children, Tony Fenster (1967-2015), Brenda Fenster Ries of Mt. Tabor, NJ, Angela Fenster Moore of Olathe, KS, Randy (Roy) Fenster of Stevensville, MT, and James Fenster of St. James, MO.

Dallas loved all sports, and was an especially devoted Nebraska Cornhusker football fan. He attended many Holdrege Duster sporting events in support of his children, and could often be found cheering in the stands, alongside the wrestling mat, or at the side of the track with his stopwatch. He continued to be in the stands supporting his grandchildren in their many activities, and he was always proud to tell others of their many accomplishments.

Dallas loved to play golf, and was also an active outdoorsman devoted to hunting and fishing with his family and a treasured group of lifelong friends. Colorado Elk Camp was one of his favorite places in this world to be. He always loved the mountains and being outdoors.

Dallas was also an avid music lover, having sung in the choir at Bethel Lutheran Church, and with the 1733 Barbershop Chorus. He shared his love for singing with his children, family and friends.

Dallas and Carol moved to Linn Valley Lakes, KS in 2009, where they were blessed with many cherished friends. Dallas enjoyed singing in the church choir and a quartet at Linn Valley Community Church. He also enjoyed playing golf, and having morning coffee in the clubhouse, aka the ''office''.

In his late years, Dallas was a loving and devoted caregiver and husband, proud father and grandfather, and member of his church and community. He was full of life and joy, fully committed to his family, and he was deeply loved.

Dallas was preceded in life by his parents Harry and Eleanor Fenster, and his son Tony Fenster.

He is survived by his wife Carol; his sister Madeline; his children Brenda and her husband Richard Ries, Angela and her husband Troy Moore, Randy Fenster, and James and his wife Kaitlin Fenster; and eight grandchildren: TeJay and Ty Fenster, Madison and Malerie Moore, Brian and Sean Ries, and Dallas and Parker Fenster.

Visitation will be held on Monday evening at the Schneider Funeral Home in Lacygne, KS from 5pm to 7pm. Funeral services will be held at the Linn Valley Community Church on Tuesday, March 5 at 11:00am with a lunch at the church to follow. As a memorial, the family requests donations be made in Dallas name to the Childrens Brain Tumor Family Foundation. www.cbtff.org
