My Story

Dallas was born Feb 28th 1980 Kim will tell you how proud she was of him. He was a good baby and very happy. Long and skinny very much took on the Prokopis 
genes. He was the first born of three boys. two years later came Billy and then five years after Billy came Teddy. Dallas and Billy were 2 years apart and according to 
mom were very close. If you seen Dallas then you would see Billy. They got along great brothers that were bestfriends. Growing up they played a lot of sports softball, 
baseball,and football. they were defenitly all boy. Since they were the first of all grandchildren they were very much spoiled went on trips to disneyland trips to see Notre 
Dame games and yellowstone were just to name a few. They were very close to there cousins Cory and Shane. Tedd and Kim split up shortly after Teddy was born and I 
think this had a inpact on the boys as they started getting older they started getting in to trouble. In 1997 Billy accidently shot himself and was killed. the whole family 
was devastated especially Kim and Dallas. Dallas had a hard time coping with the loss of Billy and shortly after he died Dallas and Jennifer met. there first offical date 
was the Rocky Point Haunted House in Oct.1997 Jennifer had a 3 month baby Kandice and Dallas just adored Kandice and loved helping Jennifer in any way he could to 
take care of her. Meeting Jennifer really helped Dallas to deal with the loss of Billy. Kim also loved Kandice and spending time with her. I think by spending so much 
time with Kandice it helped the greiving process.During all this time Dallas had also turned to using to help ease the pain of loosing Billy. Dallas made a lot of bad 
decisions in which landed him in prison in late 99 early 2000. Dallas did a little over 3 yrs.He paroled in Oct 2003 to grandma and grandpa prokopis house it wasnt long 
after that Jennifer and Dallas started dating again and by early December Jennifer was pregnant with there first son Billy. In april of the next year Grandma Prokopis died and this was a very sad and hard time for the family.
