    I have to say Dale was a very good man. Hard working, caring, sharing, always happy. He was a kind, gentle man who loved the outdoors and his family most of all. He will be missed by his friends and family but Dale will never be forgotten. Thru thick and thin he always pushed forward and never gave up. Memories are always with you. In loving memory, may he rest in peace.
