Our hearts go out to you! It is hard to express how much Dale will be missed in our lives. He was a great soul and a really good friend! Dale always had a smile for you, or a cross ways look that only he could give (lol), to brighten your day. He and Wayne were the best of friends for so long it can only be described as a life time. Dale helped us so much....from keeping the yards mowed weekly, to working on the pool, or working on my car...he was always willing to help. I want you to know how very much he loved his family....he spoke of you often. Our deepest condolences to you all. Sent with love and remembrance.

Jeanna, Butch and Mickey and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up with Dale and all you kids. I was a few years older but always felt welcomed in ya'lls home like I was one of your siblings. My memories run through my mind all the time. I was so blessed to reconnect with your mom and Jeanna. Please know that your family will be held in many hearts, thoughts and prayers. None of you nor Dale will ever be forgotten. And will always be loved.

Where to begin with the Memories!
My greatest I guess would be that you & your Brothers along with some other great life long dear friends were the first to become my friends & welcome me to ole Henrietta Jr High ( 7th grade) after moving there from my hometown of Clarendon! From then on you have (you all have) always been a big part of my heart!! RIP Dale... One day my friend we will run those Chevy Impalas again on the Petrolia highway quarter mile run! I'm sure Heaven has one! šŸ’”šŸ’–šŸ’”šŸ’–
