Dymally was once a former teacher and union organizer, who began his great political career in 1963. He served in the state office for twenty years, and twelve years in Congress representing South Los Angeles. His political career lasted for forty years.

He was a remarkable gentleman making history as he was the first foreign-black assemblyman, the first black senator, and the first black lieutenant governor elected in 1975. He not only served in state legislature and Congress, but also served as chairman for the Congressional Black Caucus and House Foreign Affairs Committee where he was a great influence in aiding Africa.

Information regarding a memorial service is unknown.
