Our condolences to Dorothy and family. Dale was a long time neighbor and good friend to my parents and our entire family. My brother Ray worked for Dale on the farm as did I occasionally. Dale always had a smile on his face and was a delight to be around. I have nothing but fond memories of Dale and his entire family even though our contact in the past few years has been limited.
