Dear Robb Family, We were so sorry to learn of Dale's passing. Unfortunately, we had lost touch in recent years, so we didn't know about Dale's illness. Lloyd has many good memories of the times he shared with Dale, and I always enjoyed talking to him. We hope that your memories of Dale will help to sustain you in the times to come. Please know that you are in our thoughts.

The world lost a great person when we lost Dale. One thing I will always remember about Dale is the great loyalty he had to his friends. I will cherish the moments we shared, always.

Blace and Kenny, I remember those summer days at Tuscora Park pool, riding in the snazzy red convertible, going to the drive-in movies, teaching Red Cross lifesaving classes and sailing at Atwood. We had wonderful times and I cherish them.

He was a pleasure to work with before he retired from Gradall, and a great person to have known. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family!

To all of Dale's family...please know that my heart grieves with you. Dale was a very special friend while I lived in the area. It breaks my heart that I lost track when I moved to Florida. He will be another guardian angel up there watching over me. Love, Betty Hoffman

I have very fond memories of Dale when we both were in the NPHS Marching Band and he will be missed but not forgotten.
