Dale lived his first few years in Weston and then moved with his family to his Grandmother’s farm south of Lyons. He attended Lyons High School and graduated with the class of 1952. He married Ruth Etter at the United Brethren Church in Adrian on August 23, 1957. They spent all but ten years when they lived in Delta, living in Lyons.

Dale was a true friend, a man of his word, and a wonderful husband and father. I had the pleasure of singing with him for several years. He had a terrific voice, but much more than that, he brought his kindness and ideas to the quartet in a positive way. He will be deeply missed by his loved ones and friends, and yet his memory will live on as an example for all of us to follow.
