Betty Dawkins sObituary, Death – We are saddened to inform you of the passing of Dr. Rudy Dabalos, who was held in high esteem by all of us, and it is with a sense of loss that we share this information with you. The unexpected passing of Rudy, who was 80 years old, took place on December 20 at the Othello Community Hospital. His passing came as a complete surprise. Adjusting his patients was one of the things that provided him the most delight, and he was able to continue doing it right up to the day he died away.
It is impossible to adequately describe the impact that Dr. Dabalos had on Moses Lake, Othello, and a huge number of smaller villages in the surrounding area over the approximately 45 years that he worked as a private practitioner. He was one of a kind and can never be duplicated in any manner, shape, or form since he was completely unique. In light of the fact that future celebrations would not be the same without him, we ask that you keep each and every one of us in your thoughts and prayers at this trying time.
There is not the slightest shred of doubt in our minds that he is at this very moment in paradise, inspecting the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) of each and every individual there and making any required changes. We miss you Dr. D.
