I am married to Dale's niece on his wife's side of the family, Sandy Whitmire Davis. Dale was without a doubt the kindest man I have ever met. He and Marcella welcomed me not just to the family but to their hearts. Dale was always quick with a witty comment, and funny as anything, without saying a cross word about anyone. I have never heard the term "rapier wit" applied to anyone more deserving than Dale. He never said an unkind word about anyone. He was devoted to his wife and special needs son, Darryl, and faced every challenge with a smile and his wit. He was kind to every friend and family member, treating all (even at first meeting) as if they were a long-time, treasured friend. At mine and Sandy's wedding, Dale had a tumble down some stairs, but he treated it as if it were nothing more than an intentional stunt or pratfall. His aplomb during difficult circumstances serves as an inspiration to all of us. Dale had so many stories to tell, that even a lifetime would be too short for him to tell them all. I will miss him greatly.
