OBITUARIO

Dale Howard Eickhoff

31 diciembre , 19597 octubre , 2019

Dale Howard Eickhoff, age 59, of New Port Richey, Florida passed away on Monday, October 7th, 2019 after a six-and-a-half-year battle with cancer. His loving family was by his side. Dale was born December 31, 1959 in St. Petersburg, FL to Ralph and June (Steiner) Eickhoff. He graduated from Hudson High School in 1977 and attended Pinellas Vocational Tech Institute and received his diploma in Drafting and Design Technology. For a while in the 1970’s, he was a volunteer firefighter for Pasco County. In 1985, Dale met the love of his life, Margaret. They married on September 5, 1987. Their son Drew was born in 1990.

Dale and Margaret were always together. Before Dale took sick, they would go on walks together, or drift aimlessly around flea markets. Theirs was a wonderfully simple life, except during the holiday’s when they would battle over how many Christmas Light’s were too many. They could often be found sipping coffee and laughing together at any of the numerous Starbuck’s in Pasco or Pinellas. Dale lived for making Margaret laugh.

He was also such a loving father. Dale and Drew were buddies- the best of friends. During the last year they would often go fishing together, with Dale catching more palm trees than actual fish. Together they would drive all the way to Spring Hill just so Dale could get a slice of his favorite pizza.

Dale was an avid football fan- Go Bucs! He loved the Discovery Channel, and nothing mesmerized him more than watching shows like ‘Alaska Wildman’, or YouTube videos about anything mechanical. Mostly, Dale loved to laugh. He held on to his sense of humor until the end.

Dale is survived by his wife of 32 years, Margaret; son Drew; brother Bill (Suzy) Eickhoff; two nieces, a nephew, and a loving group of cousins who miss him dearly.

A Celebration of Life Gathering will take place on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 2-3pm at Meadowlawn Funeral Home in New Port Richey, FL. A Celebration Service will follow at 3pm.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the SPCA in Dale’s honor.

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

I remember the day when the whole Phillips and Eickhoff families were at our home when we were young and my father cooked as he always did for us all a huge breakfast with eggs and the best sausage gray and biscuits. (Thanks dad I make it just like u ) when we finished eating he told us all we were going on a surprise trip. Since my dad worked at the mouse house he says get dressed we are going to Disney world we all jumped and ran to get dressed !! The memory was lost in my mind until the few weeks before dale passed and we sat to talk about things memories and how he loved my dad.. He awoke the memory in me and said I loved that day and loved those tea cups and spinning you girls(myself and dawn ) fast as I could and you screaming stop !!!!! I’m sad that he is gone but am happy to have had our last talk about the good old days as he said .. I will carry all my memories and happy times with u Dale love u always.
