Dale enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandson, "Foster", his little pal and buddy. He liked going to bull rides, camping, listening to country music and he was an avid hunter and fisherman.

Dale went to church, but enjoyed the woods as his church. He was a farmer and mechanic and owned Dale's Garage, where friends came often to talk and visit. Dale had been on dialysis and had suffered a lot, but he always had a smile and a twinkle in his eye, when family or friends visited.
