Dale was a good and simple man, a family man that knew how to care of his family. Always courteous and polite and the consummate strait man as he would tell a joke and not smile till he knew you got the joke. I will always remember him as a man who regardless of the status of his daughters relationship with me, his son in law in a way, still always treated me with dignity and respect, and these are hard earned quality's to be sure. I will surely miss him, as I am sure his family is at this moment, and if anyone is clearly recognized at the gates of heaven it will be this man here,...............Sincerely, John Christopher
