Memories Timeline


  1. Dale always made me laugh. Once, at a conference, someone I didn't even know was hurtful and rude to me. Dale, seeing I was extremely upset and crying, was not about to let the incidence pass without giving the woman a piece of his mind! I loved that about him. He always called it as he saw it. We will miss how he made us laugh at our meetings.

  2. I am so sorry to learn of Dale's passing. I really enjoyed visiting with him at the store. The last time I saw him, he came in to show me his dog to help socialize him. What a beautiful dog, and Dale was so proud of him. I know how much he was loved by all of you, and how much he loved you. I am so disappointed that I will not be able to come show my respect since I am in Tennessee. My prayers are with you all. Love, Lena Bodin

  3. I've known and worked with Dale for over 15 years. He was a fun person to be around and always had a story to tell about what was happening in his schools. He will be greatly missed. Love You Dale…REST NOW.

  4. To Dale's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always think of Dale as a friend. His bright spirit was enveloping, his laughter infectious. I will miss him.
