For as long as I can remember, Uncle Dale called me "Julie Beth Kutzelman". He used my whole name in all interactions and I always thought that was both funny and endearing. I was never just "Julie" to him. I felt that my presence made him happy because it also meant that extended family was likely gathered, probably in Candlewood or on another travel adventure (the Florida Keys trip stands out in my memory). Above all Dale was devoted to his family and so proud of everyone. He loved to "gush" about their accomplishments. Boasting was not limited to the kids... he often included his rockstar wife Juliette and my mother Lyn, his baby sister. He was clearly impressed by determination and grit, putting the women in his life on top of the bragging list! I will miss you Uncle Dale. I hope you are at peace.

What a beautifully written obituary. A few things I did not know about, and am glad to know now - like the NYT reading.... Uncle Dale was one-of-a-kind and the accomplishments in his life deserve merit. More importantly his love for his family was always evident. Always spoke of the world of his children and was always so very proud - as he should be! My love goes out to Aunt Juliette, Sara, Alyson, Jill and Tom and all of Dale's grandchildren and their families. Who wrote this obit? Maybe a joined effort? Wonderfully written. Love to you all

What a beautifully written obituary for Dale! His very accomplished life is evident and will be carried on through the bright eyes of his loving wife, Juliette, and their very accomplished children, grandchildren and future generations. Dale was one of a kind and will be missed. I admired his conservative values and agreed with him (most of the time ; ) ) My thoughts and prayers are with his immediate and extended families as well as all who loved him. “Gone but not forgotten, although we are apart, your spirit is within me, forever in my heart”.

Our heart felt thoughts and prayers and so much love go out to my cousins, their spouses and partners, my aunt Juliette, and all of the relatives and friends that knew Uncle Dale. He was a unique guy, and he always had something important to say. We respected his intelligence and his accomplishments, mainly the greatest accomplishment of all which is to have a loving, supportive family until the end of his days. Rest in peace uncle Dale. We all loved you.
