Dale R. BINTZ

October 28, 1924December 2, 2018

Dale R. Bintz of Vero Beach, FL formerly of Vineland, NJ passed away December 2nd, 2018. Dale is survived by his wife of 69 years Naomi and their two sons, David (Cynthia) missionaries in Spain and Donald (Devo) of Burbank, CA. Dale was a loving grandfather to Ryan, Julie, and Kathleen; and his nine great-grandchildren. When Dale was eleven years old, he asked Jesus into his heart. This decision defined the way he lived the rest of his life. He was drafted into the US Army in 1944, served under George Patton, and saw action in the Battle of the Bulge. When returning home from the war, Corporal Bintz began dating Naomi Snyder, who he affectionately called “Baby” since she was several years younger. In 1948, Dale and his brother Glenn opened a printing business called Glendale Press. This was a flourishing business in Vineland, NJ for many years. Dale & Naomi were married in September of 1949. Their first son, David, was born in 1953 and then Donald was born in 1956. One very notable accomplishment was over a period of three years, Dale built a summer home in his back yard. Then in 1960, moved it 37 miles to a plot he purchased two blocks off the beach in Ocean City, NJ. Dale enjoyed carpentry as a hobby, woodworking, fishing, and singing. He was a faithful and active member of West Baptist Tabernacle Church in Vineland where he served many years as a trustee, deacon, choir member and a beloved Sunday School teacher. The Glendale Press was sold in 1984, and the Bintzes moved to their summer home in Ocean City fulltime, enjoying a retirement lifestyle. Dale planted a garden and did lots of fishing. They became “snowbirds,” dodging the NJ winters, and spending a few months each year in Florida. The area they were drawn to on the east coast was Vero Beach, where the Dodgers trained, it wasn’t too crowded, and they found a good church in Tabernacle Baptist. They eventually moved down to Florida fulltime and built a home in Lakewood Park. The joys of Dale’s life were first his relationship with the Lord, his dear wife, and his sons…BUT, he had a very special relationship with his three grandkids. Grandpop was usually present at all of their many activities…ball games, band competitions, holidays, and so on! Dale was a very humble man who loved God and his family. His humor and “corny jokes” will be remembered by many!!! He will be missed by all those who knew him. Services for Dale will be held on Sunday, December 9th at Tabernacle Ministries, 51 Old Dixie Highway, Vero Beach, FL where the Bintzes have been members since moving to Florida in 1991. Visitation will be at 2:00 followed by a service at 3:00 pm. Interment will be on Monday, December 10th, 2018, 10:30 am at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery.
