Michael Dallas being laid to rest

November 24, 2012

A local man who dedicated most of his life to giving at-risk kids in east Bakersfield a fighting chance will be laid to rest tomorrow.

Michael Dallas lost his battle with leukemia last week.

Dallas was a boxing coach with the Bakersfield police activities league for more than a decade -- and a mentor to hundreds of local kids.

His funeral has been scheduled for 10 a.m. at Saint Peter's Baptist Church.
