I am so very saddened to hear of the passing of a gentleman that became a strong business ally and close friend to me during my time in San Marcos. Dale was a totally committed teammate, sometimes finding it hard to adapt to change but would complete the mission ahead of us diligently and correctly. We shared so many challenges together during the transition over to a member of the Philips family and countless cups of coffee early in the morning before everyone arrived. He loved his sports and his passion for the car races in Austin and his wife Renee. Rest in Peace Dale, I suspect you are already finding ways to improve the lighting in heaven🙏

A memory that stands out for me was when Dale and Renee we’re driving me through a long Texas road trip to get me back to the airport so I could fly home. Their car broke down about a quarter of the way and all 3 of us had to cram into a 3-seater tow truck (4 of us total) to drive to another town. Dale and Renee got a rental to get home and then Dale paid the tow truck driver to drive me further to the airport so I made my flight in time. This was just one memory that stood out but there were many others. Dale was a straight forward, good guy who looked out for people. RIP Dale.

I was so sorry to hear of Dale's passing. My thoughts go out to Renee and his family. Dale and I worked together for almost 20 years. There were lots of challenges, many good memories, many many hard working days, nights and weekends to achieve goals, meet deadlines and make our company better. Dale was one of less than 20 people who I asked to make the move from California to Texas when the decision was made to move Gardco to San Marcos. He was instrumental in helping establish our showroom there and many other marketing activities. I would challenge Dale with a project, he would tell me he wasn't sure it was possible and a short time later he would tell me it was done, or nearly done! Dale was a committed and loyal employee. The biggest smile I ever saw from Dale was the Christmas I gave him a pair of great seats at a San Antonio Spurs game. He was a big basketball fan. He surprised me lots of time and those tickets sure surprised him! RIP Dale. -Cheryl (Fraga) Gendron
