He who lives in the memory of his loved ones
is not dead,
he is only far away,
only those who are forgotten are dead.


AndI think we will never forget Dale, the best cousin Icould have.
We will miss his warmth and sense of humor

Pam and Dale were neighbors of ours for many years. Our first memory of them was when they would drive by on Friday afternoons with one of them towing their fishing boat and the other one towing their camping trailer. We met them when our daughters became friends and we invited them to go water skiing at Bonny Reservoir. We remember Dale saying why the hell would anyone want to jump out of a boat. After the first trip, when Dale quickly learned how to ski, they bought a new boat and ski equipment. By the way, Dale put the first dent in the new motor home, but tried to blame it on “Damm it Pam”. The next 30 years we camped, boated and 4-wheeled together. He was an expert in planning our daily 4-wheel trips and never once got us lost. We hope he finds all the glassy water in heaven and will ski forever. We will miss our fun times, but our thankful for all the memories.

I was just a little girl when Pam brought this stranger (Dale) home to meet the Illinois family. I remember my dad saying “god damn Pam is that the best you could do” . Of course everyone busted out laughing! And so it began, Dale fit right in and became part of our crazy crew. Over the years many memories have been shared. It seemed after retiring we started seeing more of Dale. We loved to visit in the mountains and enjoyed his time here with us in Illinois. Never a dull moment and so many laughs (usually to the point of tears)! We will miss him so much. His strength and laughter will live on through his family and in our hearts forever. Love you buddy😘. Give Uncle Kenny a hug from all of us.

I don't know where to begin, Over 20 yrs of working together, hunting together, helping you during ice racing season, boating/fishing on Fridays during ten hour days, helping each other on home projects. The list can go on and on ... Because we defiantly shared the same interests. Racing, Racing and more Racing. I always thought Jeff's name was "Damn it" and his middle name was Jeff!!!! You were like a brother to me and even though we had lost touch a few years ago there is a big void. As Rich would say "RIP Dude" see you on the other side some day .

The Low family loved Dale the moment we met him. We will always remember his warm smile and infectious laugh. We we’re amazed by his kind heart and his can-do attitude. If you needed anything Dale would be the first to step up and help. We are so blessed to have Dale in our lives.

I’m a neighbor of Dale and Pam and I was able to go on a camping trip a couple years back with them and all their friends. What I learned about Dale real fast on that trip was he “Hauled Ass!” Dale was leading all the local neighbors to the spot and I was right behind him lol. It took everything my truck had to keep up with him. I was proud I somewhat stayed with him, but he literally left me in the dust. I’m pretty sure he modified his motorhome somehow to make it faster. Dale always had a positive attitude and a huge smile. I will always cherish the short time I knew him.

Having known Dale for over 50 years, I sure have a lot of memories of him. He always treated me like a sister when we were in school, protecting me from "the boys". I can still hear his mom..."Dale Lee!"...which always sounded like day-lee. He would stand at attention! No matter how tough he thought he was, he always listened to his mom! All the years that have gone by and Dale always greeted me with a big bear hug. He was a kind, giving man who always would lend a hand to help. You have lost a good one. Pam, Jeff and Ginny-Thank you so much for sharing him with us. So many tears have been shed from all of us who are lucky enough to have known him.

I have only known Dale for a couple of hunting seasons. I have camped the last 2 years next to their camp. He always had a smile and a positive attitude when I would see him. I am devastated of his passing. He left hunting camp early and I was worried about him. I am truly sorry for his passing.

Quiet and quiet without a word
did you leave us?

You had a good heart
now it rests quietly, but unforgotten.

It's so hard to understand
that we will never see you again.

Dear Dale,
You will remain in our dear memories forever.
We have experienced a lot with you and your great ones in the USA and Germany and have always laughed a lot together.
Dear Pam, dear Anna, dear children and dear family. We are deeply saddened for you.

Your uncle Pauli with Sabine, Marvin, Melanie and Susanne
