Memories Timeline


  1. It is with sadness that I read of Dale’s passing. I first met Dale on a fishing trip to the NW Angle, who fished with Bill & Bob. He was a superb poker player (smile). What a trio they were. Dale was the kindest and gentlest person I have ever met. My sincere condolensces to the family.

  2. Dale was the nicest person I have ever worked with, anywhere. I treasure our years together at Handi-Wheels where Dale made sure all his riders were well taken care of. Many tears have been shed by me knowing Dale did not receive his due retirement with Maxine. I have been honored to have known Dale. My very sincere condolences.
