Recuerdos

Dale H. Van Horne

¿TIENE UN RECUERDO O UNA CONDOLENCIA QUE AÑADIR?

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO
Theresa Clatto

10 enero , 2020

Each time I was around Dale Van Horne the quote by Saint Francis de Sales, “Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength”, would pop into my head. You immediately felt comfortable with him.
He once was my alibi in the Houston airport. I called Linda to tell her I wouldn’t be to work because I was stranded there due to weather. The thoughts were going around in my head, “Will she think I was playing hookie?” She blurted out,”Oh Dale is stranded there too.” And sure enough in the early morning we ran into one another. If memory serves me, he called her and said, “You will never guess who is here with me.” And that became the joke between the three of us. This memory, the twinkle in his eye, the pipe in his hand and the knowledge I was blessed to have known him will always stay with me. Thank you Linda and family for letting us get to know such a gentle man filled with strength.
Sincerely,
Theresa

Times with the Van Horne family at MeMaws cooking out and playing Pinochle (took a long time for me to learn) with a ginger and ginger in hand. Taking a road trip to Niagara Falls casino where I earned the nick name “Jimmy the Wheel” for providing good directions before we ended up in Nova Scotia! Also enjoyed playing golf with Dale and listening to his pointers for keeping my head down. Will miss chatting with him on occasion about how the Steelers are playing or “should be playing”.
Rest in Peace Dale.
With love and sadness, Jimmy the Wheel

My best memory of my dad is when we would go to the shore and he would take me way out in the ocean until we would feel the undertow get too strong and then have to swim back in.

Some of the fondest memories I have of my father are times spent at the Kingston Swim Club in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I spent many hours sitting next to my father (or close enough to see his cards) while he played one deck pinochle. This is how I learned the game and would go on to beat him and his card partner many times as an adult 🃏 . It was there that I also spent many times watching him play volleyball with his buddies. Dad enjoyed excitement and was never one to sit for very long. Other fonds memories involve summers at the Jersey Shore where we would ride the waves and enjoy time spent as a family together in one place. And, finally, another memory is when the entire family (dad, mom, and us four girls) went to the Bahamas - one evening we went in search of Blackbeard's grave and were all crammed into a VW Bug – being the youngest I got the honors of sitting on some hard plastic 😊. I’m sad you are gone from this earth but glad you are no longer suffering and at peace. Rest Peace Dad!

Fondly,
Cathy (Van Horne) McHale
Dale’s youngest daughter from his first marriage
