I’ve known Dale since about 1993. And Kim way b 4 that as we grew up together. Her family and mine were the same a matter of fact Kim met Dale Because of me as I married his best friend. Dale was truly extremely talented. Gosh he painted some beautiful cars. 2 Vet’s that stand out to me and were stored at my house for years were a 76 or 78 candy apple red and a beautiful white / yellow vet with the c6? Emblem painted on the hood. Anyways my heart goes out to all his family. His wife, children and parents. You were taken away to young you will be gravely MISSED ❤️

Dale was my neighbor for 13 years...we had a lot of laughs together and a few disagreements. I always was amazed how talented he was and how he did things to perfection. I have great memories of our trip to Vegas, car shopping, and discussing our kids. I will miss you brother.

Dale and I have been friends since middle school . It started out with riding dirt bikes and if we were riding we were racing Dale was a very competitive person and dam good at what ever he did . Then cars came along we raced them painted them and sometimes wrecked them we worked together on a lot of projects over the years even houses. There is not enough space on this page for the things we have done together. I will greatly miss him and my shop will feel empty with out him .RIP my BROTHER

May you all treasure his memories. May you all lift one another. When you feel yourself feeling sad think of the memories you once shared. Allow all the laughter and Joy he brung to over flow and guide you through. His flesh is no longer present, but his spirit lives on with each of you. May God Blessed and lift you all.
