I would like to share a few moments of my memories of Uncle dale,
First off his laugh still rings joyfully in my ears
Usually he would make a comment or be telling a story and that laugh would pop up in between his sentences...
One of my earliest memories, I had to be 10 or 11 years old, Ronny and David had bmx boys bikes and I wanted to ride one ... I asked uncle dale and he said I could but not to be rough!
I thought that was odd because as we all know Uncle dale could fix practically anything which brings me to my next memory
RIGHTY TIGHTY LEFTY LOOSEY
Over the years of dad and uncle dale popping in one of my residences to help with a leaky faucet or just a misaligned closet door
Always an easy fix for them
However the lesson rings true to this day
Uncle dales voice reminding me
RIGHTY TIGHTY LEFT LOOSEY
❤️❤️ Thank You for all your love and caring over the years! I Love You,
Your God daughter Shannon ❤️❤️

I met Dale while working in one of the offices he took care of. To say he was helpful is an understatement! He also always had a smile on his face and a kind word. He will be missed. My sympathy and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.

You were always positive in your thinking.
You will always be my friend.
May the good Lord keep you close
