On Sunday, July 26, 2015 in Germantown, MD the Lord whispered to Dallas Eugene Waters, Jr. in a voice unheard by all and said, "It's time to come home and rest."\r\n\r\nDallas Eugene Waters, Jr., (Butch), was born October 15, 1959, in Olney, Maryland, to Martha Silverta Tyler-Waters (deceased) and Dallas Eugene Waters, Sr. (Tuffy). \r\n\r\nButch was born in the Gaithersburg-Rockville area and attended Broome Jr. High School in Twinbrook, making the honor roll almost every semester. At Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville he played football earning the name "Smiley" for his beautiful smile. He was so fast in track that his teammates nicknamed him Cheetah. He was also a math whiz as he conquered algebra and trigonometry. After school he worked as a truck driver for the Maryland State Highway Administration.\r\n\r\nButch attended the Church of the Redeemer in Gaithersburg. He enjoyed listening to WHUR gospel. His favorite gospel song was "Rough Side of the Mountain". He also enjoyed listening to Pastor T.D. Jakes. He read his Bible and repeatedly favored Psalm 51. He was a Dallas Cowboys fan for many years admiring Emmitt Smith until recently converting over to the Ravens.\r\nButch also loved to cook. His favorite among many was spaghetti chicken, true authentic Italian style. You could stop by his house at any time and he would have something on the stove or in the oven. He kept the pantry packed. He was very hospitable and kept a very clean house. He had a great sense of humor and a jolly laugh that could brighten your day at the drop of a dime.\r\n\r\nButch is survived by his father Tuffy, sister Renee, a devoted loving friend of 20 years, Natalie Massaquoi. Butch also leaves behind two sons, Dallas Littlejohn and Matthew, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
