So many great memories of growing up and then as adults. Dale talked us into moving to Alberta to find our pots of gold and in turn I got other family members to follow. After 2 1/2 years we all decided Sussex was in our hearts. We all had many good times throughout the years and each time we lose a family member we all lose a piece of ourselves. although Dale's family is in Mass, USA we will always have you in our hearts.

I do not think I could write any better the feelings me and my family have for Uncle Dale and his lovely family than cousin Mysti has comment. You will be missed Uncle. Lots of peace and rest. Hopefully playing horseshoes with Dad.

I was extremely fortunate to have Dale in my life. He was always pleasant and made you smile. I am sorry i will no longer be able to enjoy his presence. I pray for all those touched by his enthusiasm. Saying goodbye is never easy, but knowing the joy of Dale makes it a little easier. I wish everyone peace and hope in this time. God Bless all.

One of the best uncles around bar none!! Uncle Dale was full of fun and mischief, which runs in the family I can confidently say. There are just too many stories to share!!! He was a kind hearted individual who was always around for his family whenever they needed him. He & Adam came to Canada at the drop of a hat when his brother Ansel was at Heaven's door, to be support for family and little did he know he had his own health issues that he & his family would soon be dealing with.

We want to send Cathy & kids our deepest & sincerest sympathy during this tremendously difficult time & hope that all of the many years of memories & stories shared, will help everyone through this sad time for our family! We are honoured to make the journey from Canada to help honour Dale and celebrate his Life with family & friends!

All of our Love,

Mysti, Jamie, Colton & Calli xoxo
