On December 29th, Dale Lloyd Jackson of San Diego, CA passed away at the age of 84. He was a kind and generous man who was loved by many.

Dale was a man of many skills and trades who loved staying busy whether that meant gardening, drawing, or painting. In fact, he met the love of his life, Jackie, in an art class. Dale’s hardworking and ambitious nature was evident throughout his life’s many ventures and passions, including being a single engine pilot and working as a DJ when he was younger. Dale worked for Coca-Cola for many years…. although he always preferred drinking Pepsi. He also succeeded as an independent newspaper distributor for the Union Tribune. Dale’s time working as a distributor is fondly remembered by his sons, as this was where he taught them the value of hard work. Dale’s ventures also included owning a Honda Motorcycle Dealership. After Dale retired, he enjoyed bookkeeping and preparing coffee at his son’s store, where he is still fondly known as “Dad” by all.

Dale’s impact on others had no bounds; he will forever be remembered as someone who was always ready to lend a helping hand to others, and who delighted in sharing whatever he could with those around him. Regardless of the circumstance, Dale would gladly give anything he had to someone in need. Dale’s giving nature was a testament to his Christian faith, as religion was an integral part of his life. He enjoyed sharing in his faith with others, regularly taking friends to church with him.

Dale was predeceased by his beloved wife of 43 years, Jackie, whom he missed greatly after she passed. Dale and Jackie were a sweet and loving couple. We find comfort knowing they are finally together again. After Jackie passed, Dale moved into Waterford Terrace, a retirement home, where he quickly befriended those around him. As he delighted in these new friendships, he also continued to enjoy his regular morning meetings with his long-time neighborhood friends. Dale deeply valued and cherished spending time with loved ones and he greatly missed getting to see everyone over the last nine months.

Dale was also predeceased by his parents, Lester and Ruby Jackson, and his only brother, Eugene. He will be greatly missed by all, including his three sons, Wayne and wife Becky, David and wife Debbie, and Tim and wife Cheryl; his eight grandchildren, Shannon Jonas and husband Daniel, Jeremy Jackson and wife Anna, Amanda Jackson and fiancé Christian Van Hamm, Shannon Peterson and husband Kevin, Shaun Jackson, Brandon Jackson and wife Joruthy, Lisa Janis, and Beth Janis and fiancé Gary Hirsch; and 11 great-grandchildren, Tori, Mason, Robert, Landon, Tatum, Jacob, Luke, Trace, Logan, Zoey, and Otto. Dale will also be missed by his cousins Phyllis Brown and Patricia Turner, whom he remained very close to over the years.

Dale was buried next to his wife, Jackie, at Singing Hills Cemetery on Thursday, January 14th, where they are now spending the rest of eternity together.

I just learned of Dale’s passing. I’m so sorry. His wife Jackie and I were in a puppet troupe together for many years. Dale was always supportive of our endeavors. He had a wonderful sense of humor. He and Jackie had a great marriage, and I know they’re together in heaven. Many prayers and love for his family.

Wayne and Becky, David and Debbie, & Tim and Cheryl and family, I am sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I met Dale and Jackie at the wedding of my niece Cheryl as she married Tim. Dale was a very nice man who was so proud of his son. I enjoyed talking with him on that important day. You have many good memories of Dale as I see all the pictures. Dale is back with Jackie and at peace. With sympathy to you all. Norma J. Frederick

I just wanted to share my condolences and that of the Stinchcomb family for all the Jackson’s. Dale was a true gentleman and I was proud to know him. I only met him a few times but I knew him through his sons and their work ethic and their generous hearts. But my brothers knew him better than I did and they always spoke in admiration of him, which if you know my brothers is a high honor few were worthy of.
My hearts breaking for all the Jacksons. Now I can say is the same thing that I said when my parents passed away. It’s like a large tree has been pulled from the forest and now all the smaller trees are leaning in support support one another. I know the Jacksons are doing this for one another.
God bless you all.

Dale, I miss you so much. Being kids together, going to church with your family, and riding bikes, following you around on your paper route are all memories I treasure and hold dear in my heart. When we were older I always looked forward to our lunch bunch get togethers where we reminisced about the past. The stories, the laughter, the conversations we all shared meant so much. You were always giving, kind, and fun to be around. Your huge heart matched your sterling qualities. You were full of life and could light up a room with your smile. Thank you for being you. Always my cousin. Forever my friend.
