Dale was a loving father for his daughter and 2 sons. He enjoyed taking them to the races when they were little. He treasured being a part of his daughter’s time in 4H and he never missed an event that his children were a part of. He loved taking his sons Dale Jr and Jim hunting. Dale found enjoyment being there when his sons wanted to start hunting and found great satisfaction watching them harvest their first deer. He cherished when he became a granddad & enjoyed babysitting his grandchildren.

 Dale was loved by all who came in contact with him. He had the gift of “help” to anyone who was in need. He was very generous with his time and talents. One of his outstanding talents was building several homes in the Franklin area for sale and his personal residence before moving to South Carolina. His craftsmanship was superb and detailed.

    Dale was a very close & special brother of 72 yrs. He was always there for advice on family issues. I would always go with his advice – there were great wisdom in his decisions. I no longer can just pick up the phone. He will be greatly missed – many tears for the future.
    Our Dad who is 94yrs young is tremendously grieved. Dad has experienced the greatest grieve possible – that of losing your child.
    Prayers for our family & Dales’ devoted wife Debbie who was by his side through his lengthy illness.

    Dad was the greatest father a child could ask for. He always made sure we had a need for nothing. My heart is heavy knowing I can’t reach out to him to check on him an have him ask me how I am doing an how the grandkids are. I know he is no longer suffering and is with Gram once again. I love you Dad.

    Dale and I grew up together as neighbors and best friends. We lived right next door to each other. We played baseball, built forts in our yards and in the woods behind our houses, rode our bicycles everywhere, and talked about our girl friends as we got older. After high school, I went off to college and later joined the Air Force. We lost contact. I will always remember Dale as my childhood friend and companion. My thoughts are prayers are with him and his family.
