Later, Dale became a truck driver in the metropolitan Washington DC area -- moving offices for Office Movers, Inc., delivering truck & auto parts for one company, and delivering housekeeping supplies to hotels/institutions for another. Dale also worked awhile for Admiral Security, working his way up to a management position. In 2005, Dale moved to Florida to be with his father whose health was failing. He faithfully lived with his Dad and helped him until his Dad died in 2009. Dale was proud of his military service and proud to display the Marine Corps emblems, statues and symbols. He was a life member of the VFW and American Legion. He also supported several local and national charities. Dale loved cars and music, especially his 1978 Buick Regal, 2003 Mercedes, The Grateful Dead, John Prine, and Bonnie Raitt.
