To his daughter, Teri, Dale was a Hero, always being there when needed, especially to fix anything at a moments notice. And to his son, Jim, he was more than a father, he was also like a Brother, they did so much together. To his community, he was a faithful volunteer, especially with the Hanover Volunteer Fire Department. Dale loved and cherished his family, was a good provider, and especially loved being a Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, and Uncle.
