Dale was a 1960 graduate of Naples High School and belonged to the Old Friends of Naples who met for reunions at the Naples Beach Club, how he looked forward to attending and see his old "buds". Dale was also a veteran who was in the Navy and was stationed in Key West in the early 60's. Dale loved, loved, loved traveling, especially driving and would drive anywhere. He made annual treks from Florida to Michigan visiting and staying with friends along the way (Donnie Chesser for one and the "Big Man" in Michigan). In recent years, he completed a bucket list of driving out West to California stopping at the National Parks along the way and driving the coastline of California stopping at various little beachside towns, a lifelong dream. I'm glad you were tenacious enough to complete your dreams, although I know if your health had permitted, you would have traveled more! Miss you my friend.

Rest in peace my friend.

Dale was one of the first people I met here when I moved to Naples at the end of 1995. We lived in the same apartment complex, Arbor Walk (now Oasis). Dale was gruff in a no fuss kind of way, but had a heart of gold and wore his heart on his sleeve. When I thought about buying a condo, he offered to take me around town to show me different places. When I had family and friends come to town, he was more than happy to give them a tour of Naples and share his many memories of living here. He introduced me to Stan's Idle Hour down in Goodland and Sunday nights at the Naples Beach Club for music and dancing. He introduced me to Groupers and Chips and the restaurants at Crayton Cove. I have a lot of good memories of Dale and will miss the old bugger. Rest in peace my friend.
