Dale went by many names, some called him Crabby Dale others called him, Schnoz. It meant the most to him to be called Dad and Grampa. He was so very proud of his children and grandchildren. He loved riding Harley, playing the slots, dirt track racing, auctions, and attending any event or activity his kids and grandkids were part of.
Dale received the gift of organ donation seven years and 10 months prior to his passing. He was deeply grateful to his donor and the transplant team at M Health. He used this bonus time to live life fully, appreciating each extra moment with those he loved. The family is also thankful for the staff and doctors of the COVID ICU at the St. Cloud hospital for their care and compassion.
He is survived by his best friend and life partner, Lisa; beloved children, David (Courtney), Nichole, Amanda, and Nathan; his cherished grandchildren, Tre, Adrianna, Adrian, Kash, Tanner, and Reed; his brothers, Greg (Geri) and Randy (Susan; his sister, Janice; and several nieces and nephews.
