Dale has been my brother-in-law since he was six years old. I have experienced him as a little boy, a teenager and then as an
adult. He was always so nice, treated me with the greatest of respect. All our family loved him so much and memories of him
will remain in our hearts forever.
May God give peace and comfort to all Dales family and friends.
He will be missed by all of us.
