Oh, Mister Hamilton and Dena,
I'm so sorry to learn about Dale's death! SO sorry. In fact, I've been thinking about trying to locate Dale over the last two weeks.
Our family moved to 2447 Tredway Drive in 1956. I don't ever remember a time when Rocky Johnston, Dale, and others from that section of Tredway weren't outside playing with each other.
Please accept my heart-felt condolences.

I knew Dale from grammer school and high school. I bought a Harley Davidson Sportster from him in 1976. Dale was always a friend and could make you laugh. I use to see him on F.B. but I have not seen or heard from him in a while. Dale, you rest easy my friend. I will see you on the other side.

My sincerest condolences. It has been many years since I last saw Dale. I will forever remember him, his smile, and enjoying the lake, whether driving the boat or water skiing. I am saddened by his loss and wish I could have seen him one more time. Prayers go out to the family.

We are so saddened by nephew Dale's passing, but we are blessed to have been able to see him when visiting the Macon area. He had a knack for keeping the entire group in stitches. I think he inherited his Uncle Roy's sense of humor. We will be keeping him and his family in our prayers. God Bless.

Dale, you will be missed by all who knew you. As cousins, when we would get together for family gatherings, you were always the one who would bring the laughter. I will never forget your generous smile and warm spirit.
I send my deepest condolences and love to the family. You are in my prayers for God's peace and comfort to surround you.
Love and Blessings, Debi (Fordham) Mazzotta

Dale and I hitched all over the place, and ended up at the Erie Canal Soda Pop Festival. We spent a week in Evansville,Indiana and 3 days on Bull Island, Illinois, listening to music and digging the scene. I Love You Man..R.I.P. Petey..
