Dale enjoyed eating, ice fishing or ‘South Texas Ice’ fishing, hunting, his Detroit Tigers and westerns especially anything starring his hero John Wayne. He had many sayings he was quick to interject over the years. Here are our favorites, hope you can hear him saying them: “What the devil!” “Hey there kiddo!” “Hey there young feller.” “Here’s looking at you going down me!” (for a toast) “Doesn’t take a gardener to tell that from a rose.” “Jerk the slack out of your line.” “Ahh, just resting my eyes.” “If that comes up again we will both vote on it.” “Little whipper snapper.” On one of his visits to Texas, Dale whole heartedly gave himself over to the Lord and was water baptized. Graveside services will be held Monday August 12, 2019 at 11:00 am at Woodlawn Cemetery in Curtis with Jimmy Klepac officiating. A luncheon will follow at the Curtis Baptist Church. The family extends their gratitude to the staff at Knopp 2 Nursing Home for the care provided to Dale which helped him maintain a healthy and prolonged life while providing the best and most loving care available.
