Uncle Dale, there are so many memories I have of you...like you riding me on your motorcycle, to dancing the huckapuck, the swimming pool where you jumped in and momma on her float when across your yard...that was so funny...I will always miss you and the time we spent together...so glad you found love with Aunt Rosemary....No one could have loved you more...say hi to everyone and give my mom a big hug and kiss...Rest in peace Uncle Dale...love you so much...

Dale had the biggest heart and personality of anyone I had ever known.
He was always there to help out my family and give all of us plenty of laughs.
His driving was pretty scary but we all managed to survive it! LOL
Dale loved his card games and was very competitive.
I will miss his big heart and big laugh .
I always teased him about being the neighborhood social butterfly.❤️

Dale never failed to bring laughter and smiles into a room. We will miss those happy hours when playing cards was the most important thing we had to do. I won’t miss his crazy driving, but will miss the way he’d pick at me about it. He was a caring, loving friend who enjoyed life. Go rest peacefully friend, you are remembered with much loved.
