He was raised in Oklahoma City and graduated from Westmoore High School in 2011. After graduating high school, Dakota attended OCCC. He began working for FedEx as a truck driver and he really enjoyed his job. It allowed him to travel, which was one of his many passions in life. Dakota was blessed to be able to travel to many places in the world, including England, Scotland, and Japan. When he wasn’t traveling or working, he really enjoyed playing his video games and reading. However, anyone who knew Dakota knew that his number one passion in life was his family and being the best Uncle he could to his nieces and nephew. Dakota was a very loving son, brother, uncle, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
