In July 1969, Art and I moved into what was to become our forever home in Sherwood Village. The first person to welcome us was our next-door neighbor Dale. He, Mary and their three children made living in the Village a warm experience. When they moved to Arizona, we missed them, and were happy when they returned, just farther up Clifton Drive. Once again, we enjoyed meeting Dale during our walks and talking with him when he would stop by on one of his bike rides. Sherwood Village will not be the same without him.
Our hearts go out to Mary, Danny, Cathy and Amy and the grandchildren. We pray their memories will keep them warm in the days ahead.

Graduated with Dale, he was a lovely boy in school. Have had class luncheons with him also. It was nice to keep in touch at luncheons all these years. So very sorry for his family's loss. May he rest in peace.

Our deepest sympathy in the loss of Dale our dear friend . A friendship that has endured many years, good years. I remember still the times he talked about Sunday mornings , it was the day he made pancakes for breakfast ! His family was his life. Let your tears be those of love & shared happy memories of a truly "nice guy".
