  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!

    I am stunned to hear of Dale’s death. His quiet presence and knowledge of all things related to Country Lane was greatly appreciated. After his heart surgery, I hoped he might actually join the hiking group again.
    He will be missed. God bless. Elaine MacDonald

    We are so sorry to hear of Dale’s passing. Dale was one of the first to welcome us to Country Lane Estates (CLR). We have many great memories of time spent with Dale talking about the many common interests we had. His knowledge of the history of CLR was invaluable and the CLR community has lost a valued member. Dale and I (Peter) attended CPA CMA events and shared insights into our profession. He made a point of visiting Monique & I whenever he came to CLR. He will be sorely missed.
