  2. Bonnie I am so very saddened to learn of Dale’s passing. How I enjoyed his friendship and comradery at our Country Lane RV Estates. He was always so quiet but attentive to everything that was going on. We loved his being with us at our Happy Hours. If there was any question re the park he had the answer. And his war wagon was always at our beck and call if a trailer or 5th wheel had to be moved. He was never impatient with anyone. I will dearly miss Dale. And I will say it again… I will dearly miss you Dale…Godspeed. Hugs Bonnie. So sad…

    Our condolences go out to Dale’s family; we were sad to hear of his passing. We enjoyed our association with him through the Good Sam RV Chapter. He loved lighting campfires with his blow torch & even after it got washed away during the flood he was always one of the first guys outside getting the fire started. He was quiet most of the time & very patient. We’ll miss him!
