Dee, I feel privileged and honored that I was included in his circle of work friends at the FAA. I will miss his sensitivity and sense of humor. Each time I talked to him, he always had me laughing so hard my cheeks hurt....especially when we discussed the antics of our animals. Dee - may time be a source of healing for you. He loved you so very much and delighted in retelling the unique way that you two met. Dale was a phenomenal southern gentleman and I pray that he's making happy contrails...until we meet again.

My deepest condolences to the family. Dale was a great mentor and friend to me at the FAA. I looked up to him and always sought his advice for difficult questions since he was a master at dealing with difficult with multiple sides. He always had a good word to say and kept it funny. He will surely be missed by all. May his soul rest in peace and may God keep your whole family in the palm of His hand.

Dale was great at everything he did, but he also had the rare talent of being patient and kind and humble at the same time. I will miss trading scuba diving stories with him. He will be sorely missed and I pray for comfort for his family.
