I am so very sorry for your loss. Dale was a good man. I have many fun memories growing up with Bonnie, and how funny he always was with all of us, always joking around. . Your all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there - I do not sleep. I am the thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints in snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. As you awake with morning's hush I am the swift-up-flinging rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there - I did not die. Sending happy memories & prayers ❤️

My condolences to the entire family! Pops was the best I have so many great memories of him. Although he didn't express his emotions or feelings he genuinely cared for others and would give you the shirt off his back. He will be missed by the many people he touched! You all are in my thoughts and prayers and you know I will do anything in my power for you!

Dale was a wonderful Man!! What I knew of him is that he was a family man and always had a smile on his face. He was eager and willing to go out of his way to help anyone and never asked for anything in return. I'm truly sorry for his loss but I have faith that he is at peace and still with his family.

Dale was a great guy. I especially enjoyed his sense of humor each time I stopped into his shop and the stories he would share. The shop will not be the same without him. I am terribly sorry for your loss, Dale will be greatly missed.
