I met Dale in the early 80’s working at IBM in Boca Raton. We were two guys enjoying winter in florida. We enjoyed all sorts of good times together, one of the best was going to the racetrack and then out to eat at a favorite restaurant constantly laughing and joking and having fun and looking at the girls. Dale was always a good friend and we had the best of times that I still recall today. I am in Florida and was thinking about the old times and did a google search for Dale only to find he had passed a few years ago. God Bless Dale, I will never forget you friend!
Dear Steve and Bonnie,
As I sit here today at 1:00pm, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. It’s time out to devote the next silent moments for your father, Dale, and to you. I’ll always remember his warm, kind, smiling face, and wave from across the room. I’m sure one of his greatest comforts in life was having you as his family. God Bless.
His sense of humor is at the top of the list of reasons we will miss your Dad, you have many more. Peace be with him and you.
Steve and Bon, We are so sorry to hear about Dale. Even though we only met him a few times it was obvious how much he loved Steve and all of your friends. He was a kind man and will be missed. Our prayers are with you and your family.
When I grow up I want to be just like Dale!
So sorry to hear of Dales passing. We were best buddies at Holmes High School. We played in the band and hung out at the Y together. We even both retired from GE but had not seen each other for years. It’s sad how friends drift apart but we sure had fun together back in the day.
Steve, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Dear Steve and Bonnie, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and friends of your father. With deepest Sympathy, Susan
RIP, Dale……..I will miss my reminiscent friend…….Have one ready for me on the other side.
God Bless your family and friends thru this difficult time. Death being a part of life is hard to understand. Rather than letting the hurt in their heart be a sign of your loss, let it be an eternal reminder of everything they have gained from sharing in the life of someone so special…
Tonight our skies have a new star while Heaven welcomed a new angel.
I had the pleasure of talking to Dale on a daily basis at VRI. I met Dale and Lois when they came to VRI. Dale you will be missed . May god be beside the family and friends during this time of sorrow.R.I.P.
I didn’t know Dale very well but had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times and enjoyed talking to him on the phone several times at VRI. He always seemed to be a happy man and appeared to be a man who just never gave up and was constantly busy. He will surely be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and close friends.
I am thankful the opportunity to have met and worked with Dale and will miss his warm smile and personality. I pray that the family will find peace and comfort in the Memories and good times that you had with your Father, Family Member, and Friend.
We will miss Dale’s warm smile and sweet personality. His love of family and animals was always evident in the many wonderful conversations that we had. We were very blessed to know Dale. Our deepest condolences to Dale’s family and many, many friends. Happy trails, Dale!

So sorry for your loss, Dale will be missed.
Dale I met you through your son Steve. We had some really good times. You had a big heart and a great sense of humor. I will always remember when you, Dave, Steve and myself went to Germany and Amsterdam. I guess we will have to do that again on the other side.
