Dale, if you knew him you too had a true friend.

Dale taught me to be the kind of neighbor that I wanted, he was the kind of neighbor that we all need. He was the kind of neighbor that made you a better neighbor. His stories of his family, his mom and dad told me of his raising. He would have it no other way even if he could have chosen it to be different he wouldnt have.

Dale and Dorthy loved their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Dale loved camping, fishing and helping others.

This is the Dale I knew and the Dale I will miss and remember.

God Bless you Dale
