It was a pleasure to work with Dale. I learned a lot from him in the last 3 years at PMI. I enjoyed the stories he would tell and his sense of humor.
He was called to Glory and now will he forever rest in the loving arms of our Father in Heaven.

I have known and worked with Dale for 19 years at Comsonic's Inc. and 7 years at PMI Inc. He was a fun loving guy that joked a lot and always had a smile on his face. We are going to miss you friend, you left us too soon.

Dale was a good friend to me from seventh grade and through all of high school.
He was always so nice to me. Unfortunately, we lost touch when I moved away in 1977.
I want to send my deepest sympathy to all his family and friends.
