With deepest sorrow, we announce that Dallas Curtis Pargman (24) of Saint Paul, MN; our most beloved son, brother, grandson, family member and friend passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, February 16, 2020.
Dallas will be missed everyday by his mother, Deborah Misukanis, sisters; Kendall (Kaleb), Peyton, Cameron, brother Tommy, grandmother Denise Blumer, grandparents Curtis and Linda Pargman, his loving uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephew, and many great friends. Preceded in death by his close friend, Jake.
Those who knew Dallas, even just a little, lost a shining light in this world. Since his passing, all who knew him have expressed the impact he had in their lives and the inspiration he was to so many; young and old, even those who barely knew him.
Over the course of this past year, this young man went through an incredible transformation in every arena of his life. He never complained, even in situations where most would; his positivity was contagious. He had very specific, detailed goals mapped out. His day began with reading his bible and prayer. Dallas lived life every day with purpose.
His relationship and walk with God was evident in his life; especially over this past year as his faith and relationship with God grew deeper and stronger. You would often hear him say, “I’m good, God has me” and “I don’t need anything, I have all I need.”
One of his recent posts was of how God was so good to him, even though he didn’t deserve it.
Dallas attended church at River of Life Christian Center in Saint Paul, MN. He also attended bible study and men’s group; this is where his walk with God flourished as he was genuinely loved and mentored by his church family. He previously attended Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park, MN throughout his childhood and teenage years.
He was intelligent, with a creative mind. Music and making beats was his passion. Dallas was creatively expressive through his unique quotes; for example, “haahahahaha” (inside joke), and through music, photography, writing, and clothing design (including the versatility of clothing; such as the many ways to wear a scarf). He enjoyed quality time with his family and friends, and helping others; he looked forward to helping his mother’s next door neighbor shovel snow whenever he had the opportunity. He was a caring bother; especially protective over his sisters, who valued a connection with his siblings as he desired to be present in their lives; to have a positive influence on them.
Dallas enjoyed encouraging others (he even journaled about specific individuals he wanted to connect with and build up). His interests also included writing, working out at the gym, coffee at Nina’s, working for the MN Wild organization, reading, sports, playing basketball with his little brother, Tommy and attending his games as he believed in his brother’s potential and encouraged his dreams. He was Tommy’s biggest fan ever. He will be missed immensely by his little brother at the neighborhood basketball court, where he and Tommy would often shoot hoops.
If you knew Dallas, you can reminisce of his sense of humor; how he was gifted at making you laugh despite your current disposition and how he would praise those of whom he loved. He was the ultimate hype man.
“True friend,” is how many describe him as he was non-judgmental and forgiving; he was the friend who would do anything for you. Dallas loved people from all walks of life. He became the man he was destined to be during his short time here on earth. This bright, energetic, handsome young man; so full of ambition, will be deeply missed.
You’ll always be my sunshine, sweet boy. Love, Mom
