Poncho went to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 9, 2019. He was born on March 17, 1957 in Kilgore, son of Marshall and Pallie (Hughes) Dykes. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and dotted over all his grandchildren. He was a mountain of a man, rough as a corn cob, but gentle as a lamb. In his spare time, you could find him watching his favorite westerns staring John Wayne. During his lifetime, he made lots of friends and never knew a stranger. He married his soul mate, Sudy Frankens Dykes on July 17, 1982 and she remained faithfully by his side until his passing.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Marshall and Pallie Dykes; sister-in-law, Vickie Frankens; mother-in-law, Rosemary Frankens.
