I worked with Dale for many years, he was a true professional. He took great pride in his work and it showed, among the mourners at his celebration were quite a few of his customers and most of his co-workers. Sometimes Dale just couldn't help himself, on a job in Arlington an inspector for the county walks by with a Hershey bar in her back pocket Dale grins and says" sweet ass" we thought we were going to be thrown off the job but the young lady had a sense of humor thank goodness. He was quite a card and will be missed by many.

So sorry, we have so many fond memories of when we took Dale & all his family to church with us every Sunday for years when he lived in Monterey, Virginia. He always had a smile. Rest in peace friend.

...In the Wind continued conversations, two wheels, rolling over the ridges, running the twisties, on thru the valley below, chasing a river, ...in the wind RIP Brother Dale Thanks for the memories

I was blessed to be able to spend the last 7 weeks of Dale's final journey home with him. Through the tears and the sorrow, my heart remains full of the wonderful memories we shared. The smiles and the laughter , even on his final day will always bring me comfort. No more pain no more medications....the peace on his face at the end assured me that he was finally in comfort....and on his way home. Save a place for me....Until we meet again...RIP my sweet angel friend <3 Ride High
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

What I loved about Dale was he never let anything bother him and to him, every day truly was "a great day to ride". Dale spoke exactly how he felt and he wasn't wasn't afraid to show it, his true genuine self was always present. I rode many times with Dale and we shared a lot of crazy moments with a lot of laughter. I will never forget the apple pie you made.. it was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! And I will never forget choosing the wrong door in your house that night... we laughed for hours!! Rest in peace my dear friend... I will see you again!

My memory of the first time I met Dale. It was a Wednesday evening at Grove's for a dinner ride with the HOG chapter. Dale, my self and another guy showed up. Had no clue where to go for dinner and ended up in Wardenvills WV for dinner. Had a great time riding with him that evening. The next time I saw him he chewed my butt out for riding to close behind a semi truck. After that he taught me the correct ways to ride. With his help it has made me the rider I am today. Thanks Dale for all the advice over the yrs. You will be missed but I know you will be riding with us in the sky.
