Condolences to all of Dale's family. Although I haven't seen Dale since High School, he was a big part of those junior and senior high school years, since we both loved music. He was a warm and gentle soul, and I'm sure he touched so many people during his life. He's home now! He will be missed by all close to him and all whose hearts he has touched.

Love you Uncle Dale! All of our memories during the holidays; Amish delights, Mummers Day Parades, love and family. I’m so thankful I was able to chat with you over the phone a few months ago and hear your jovial voice and listen to your jokes. Love you so very much!

We really appreciated seeing Dale at church. He was always upbeat and encouraging even when he was going through his physical trials. We will really miss talking with him and seeing him at church.

Judy and I are saddened to learn about Dale's passing. I know he lived life for his family . He always spoke lovingly about Linda, the children and grandchildren. He will be missed by family, friends and co-workers.
