It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dallas Marie Racy beloved wife of Dave Leonard of Calgary, after a courageous battle with cancer on Monday, October 18, 2010 at the age of 46 years.

Besides her loving husband Dave, Dallas will be missed by her mother Carol Duncan; step-father Jack Smart; daughter Famira; sister Amber; as well as numerous other family and friends.

    Aunty Carol, Uncle Jack and family,

    So very, very sorry to hear about Dallas. I’m so glad I got to meet and spend some time with her along Electric Avenue during Stampede, and during your 25th anniversary!

    I also remember meeting her for the first time in Parksville, many, many years ago – I think we built sand castles together…

    Thinking of you during this very difficult time…

    Love Sheri & Gene

    I was so very sorry to learn about your loss of Dallas.

    I didn’t know her well but have great memories of her in Parksville, Jack & Carol’s 25th, and especially her marriage to Dave. She was always so happy and laughing. She will certainly be missed.

    Thinking of you with great sympathy.

    Love Joan

  25. Scot Strachan :

    Dallas was an inspiration about how to fight an unprovoked illness beset upon someone. She found a way to balance medical treatments, with a positive yet accepting attitude. In fact she even found ways to embraced it all (ie. could be a Blonde, Brunette or Red Head any day she felt like it) and incorporated it into continuing to live and experience her daily life the way she wanted to, right to the end.

    I believe she was a wonderful human being in all rolls she played and I will fondly remember her.

    The Sputnik program lives on up there and no doubt still smiles as she looks down upon us all.

    To the family, especially Dave & Amber that I have had the pleasure of meeting, my sincere condolences. Also an apology for this belated posting, but while I did know the end was very near in the fall, I did not find out until thinking to google her name today.
