    Corona CaliforniaI’m glad I had the opportunity to visit with Dale at the Halverson reunion. I will remember him always.

    For here we have no enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come [Hebrews 13:14].

    Your lasting generosity to your nieces and nephews was unmatched and will not be forgotten. Rest in peace.

    Dale was a very dear friend of mine for many years and I was saddened to hear of his passing.
    We were both in the carpentry trade so we had many hours of discussions about things related to carpentry. We helped each other on many different projects and saw each other almost every weekend.
    Dale was a very kind and generous man who would lend you anything he had or offer to help out if you needed a hand.
    Dale and Freida were like family because we spent many holidays and birthdays together and Dale made the best smoked turkey I have ever tasted.
    Dale was very intelligent and had a knack for figuring out ways to do things that might have at first seemed impossible.
    He was also an “inventor” of sorts as I remember the “Old Milwaulkee Beer can crushers” that he made out of old garage door opener motors.
    I could go on & on, but I will stop here and just say that I will miss him dearly.
    Goodbye old friend we’ll meet again some day and maybe crush a few cans together.

    I am truly sorry to hear about Dale passing away. We were four months in basic training together and 17 months in Treiste Italy. He was a great pal along with his brother Dwight.
