I last saw Dale at a neighbor's 90th birthday party (Mr. Heath) about 3 yrs ago. We all talked about growing up around all the different families and the long lasting friendships we all had. I got a friend request on Facebook when I got home from Dale. Dale's youngest brother Jimmy was very close to our family and we will miss them all, but will see them again one day. My condolences to Dale's families and friends. RIP my friend.

So sorry to hear my mentor has passed. I first met Dale at Eng. Services, he was my supervisor. I would have never been as successful in my career without his training in the drafting field. I then worked for him at Concordia Ent., after that I only ran into him occasionally. He will be missed by so many people. My sympathy's to the family. R.I.P. Dale

Dale was truly a southern gentleman. Always with a sparkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. I always felt welcomed when I saw Dale in a crowd. What a remarkable, generous, kind person Dale was. My heart is heavy to hear of his passing but light at the same time knowing he and his soulmate Brenda are back together once again and probably hitting all the casinos in Heaven! Rest easy ye ole Man! All my best to Dale's Family,
Freddie Mazza
