June 30, 1985 — March 5, 2012

Dallas R. Black, 26, of Cincinnatus, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 5, 2012, at his home.

Dallas was born in Norwich, NY on June 30, 1985, a son of Vicki Wood Staley and Martin G. Black. A graduate of Cincinnatus Central School, he was a member of the Willet Rod & Gun Club and an honorary member of the Knickerbocker Country Club. He was employed with Family Drywall and the Knickerbocker Country Club. An avid sports fan, he loved soccer, basketball, golf, fishing and shooting clay pigeons and was proud to be a fan of Syracuse University, the N.Y. Mets, and the Washington Redskins. He loved to dance, but most important to Dallas was the time he spent with his nieces, nephews, and many friends.

He is survived by his mother, Vicki Wood Staley, of Cincinnatus; his father, Martin G. Black of Summerhill; his stepfather, Brian F. McNally of Cincinnatus; a sister, Shiloh (Bill) Aldrich of Cincinnatus; and brothers, Shane Kemak of Cincinnatus and Casey Black.

He was predeceased by a brother, A.J. Black, in 1999; his maternal grandfather, Jack Wood, in 1992; his paternal grandfather, Fred Black, in 2003; and his maternal great-grandparents, Harland and Nellie Nefsey.
