Oh the wonderful memories; teaching together at Aldan Elem, an adventurous 4 hour car ride from Aldan to WC in a blizzard, working together in the pharmacy, taking my son for a ride on the tractor, morning coffee and cheerios, cutting Kerry's bangs by the pool, the perfect behind your back catch of a pop fly during a family softball game, and yes, your humor that had us all laughing the last time you came to visit this past fall. Thanks Dale, for being a part of our family and brightening our lives. We miss you.

To Charlotte and family - my deepest sympathy. Since both you, Dale and I went to Aldan school then LA, and one summer I watched your girls occasionally, I feel I lost a close friend. I am so glad I went to 60th reunion and got to see Dale. I am sending prayers for your whole family at this difficult time. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

So sorry to hear this . Dale and Charlotte were dear friends of ours . We enjoyed many good times and laughs together . My husband Dick played basketball with Dale in high school and college . They both had a great sense of humor and loved to tease each other ! If you had both of these guys in a room you knew laughter and a good time would follow R.I.P Dear Dale and now you and Dick will be laughing in heaven !

"Only the good die young"--Dale was always caring, honest , kind and funny .We worked at Aldan School for too many years and he stayed positive for the most part. He kept snacks(Honey Bunnys) in his lower left desk drawer, had a landscaping business after school ,worked hard and had a terrific sense of humor . Every time i called him , he'd had another fall ,or something else broke BUT he remained upbeat and maintained his dignity --he will surely be missed !!!

Hi. It's me again. I mentioned that Dale and I did a number of things together or played practical jokes that we were mutual victims of. I would be terribly remiss if I didn't mention the extremely well received Lip Synch by all who saw it. Dale was Cher in a bikini with black wig and make-up with that hefty paunch hanging out in front. I was Sonny returning from his coffin for an encore wearing broken skis and poles with the tree trunk on my chest. We did our best version of "I Got You Babe". Dale's performance brought tears of laughter to your eyes. I knew that if I asked him to do this with me, he would gladly become involved, He was that kind of person......generous, willing, and capably fun.

Dale was a wonderful, generous, warmly funny human being who made living better if you knew him. I knew him for the years that we both lived in Hershey's Mills Estates. We did a number of things together and have considerable shared memories. It seems that Dale was my foil for practical jokes because his good nature and fun spirit made me feel that he appreciated them. He was certainly adept at returning the favor on occasion. Dale was sort of friend that you could just sit with and be comfortable in conversation or shared activities. We saw Dale and Charlotte several years ago when we returned to the Jersey shore from our present home in Arizona. I just said to my wife yesterday that we should try to hook up with them again this year. Because I waited a year too long, this has become my loss. I really liked Dale, liked being with him, and I only have a few people that I feel that way about. He was the epitome of a good guy. My wife and I feel bad for Charlotte's loss because their relationship was obviously a special one with much shared comforts.

Praying that God will give you strength and comfort during this difficult time. From what I have learned from Joni, he was a remarkable man and much loved. Know that in 2 Corinthians 5:8, to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.🙏🏽
Susan Shubert left a message on April 27, 2022:
I taught with Dale at Aldan Elementary He was an amazing educator . Good natured, patient, flexible and so committed to the school, the teaching staff and the students. He taught me , a rooky teacher when I first met him, to not take myself so seriously, to be a team member and to be prepared for whatever happened.. He was a good and generous person with a wonderful sense of humor and I benefited from working with him at Aldan and having the privilege of calling him my friend
