Born on November 12, 1974 in Man, he was the son of Darrell and Patsy (Ball) Dingess. “Daffy” was raised in a Christ-loving household filled with many memories of laughter and adventure.

“End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it. White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.”
