Dale attended Independence High School in Coal City, West Virginia 1978. That year he enlisted in the United States Army and would go on to serve 5 years leaving as a Specialist E-4. Dale was a proud member of the I.B.E.W local 26 union and spent his entire career as an electrician, working across the country. He enjoyed spending time with his family and was a Harley Davidson enthusiast. If he wasn’t working on DIY projects around the home, spending time with his grandchildren, you could find him on the open road riding his Harley. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was a very good shot. Dale was very in tune with the principals of respecting nature and our connections to it. He was a man who wore his heart on his sleeve and was not afraid to speak his mind and always stood up for himself and his loved ones. He was a compassionate man who enjoyed the simple things in life and he was an excellent teacher passing down his copious knowledge to his children and loved ones. He was a one of a kind person who we all love and miss very much.

“In our Hearts”
We thought of you today, but that is nothing new. We thought of you yesterday, and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name. Now all we have left of you are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake with which we will never part. God had you in his keeping. We love you in our hearts. -Unknown
