I saw Dale more as a brother than a brother-in-law. I looked up to him and was amazed at how he could make any business he decided to get into a huge success. Dale was one of the hardest working men that I have ever known. He loved to laugh and was always calm and respectful in his conversations. He was a good man. He loved his family. I witnessed probably Dale's last words to my sister (his wife, Daisy) when the nurse brought Daisy the phone and advised her that Dale was on the other end. Dale said, "I love you, Daisy. I love you, Daisy" several times and Daisy heard him loud and clear. This will always be a blessing to my heart. Dale treated my twin brother and me like his little brothers. I remember so many good times with Dale - hunting, boating, fishing, family reunions, Christmas, Thanks giving... I also remember sitting in a restaurant with just the three of us, Dale, Herbert and me and the waitress said to Dale, "Your brothers look a lot like you," Dale smiled and said, "Yes they do." We love you Brother Dale. We will forever miss you.
Dale was a nice gentleman and we recently had a conversation fondly reminiscing about how he remembered my dad and how he would often bring us as small girls to the store. His last comment was how I used to be a little shy girl and now years later I had helped him for so long with his business affairs. He will surely be missed by the community. Prayers for his family.
