COMMERCE - Dallas Curtis “D.C.” Maddox, 72, Commerce, died on Thursday, January 7, 2021.
A lifelong farmer and truck driver, D.C. was a Boy Scout at heart who loved the outdoors: hunting, fishing and camping.

As one person observed, "He was a friend, a common man with great values and morals."
He was preceded in death by his father, Joe Curtis Maddox.
