    Dale was a member of our church for many years and we grew to love him and count him as a dear friend. We were both Vietnam vets and he loved to go with me to our farm in the deep woods of East Texas and we would sit in the shade of our old barn and drink iced tea and swap war stories. Dale was not afraid of anything, but one late afternoon we carried some corn down to the creek to put in the deer feeders. I was walking point, and we ran across a 6 foot water mocassin as big around as a silver dollar. We were both armed and I started firing and I looked around for Dale and he was frozen stiff!! I screamed “shoot it, it’s getting away”!! He had the shot gun and I pumped every round I had in my .357 into it and it was still going. I started laughing and that was when he told me he was petrified of snakes!! That night we built a camp fire and a couple of my friends who were Vets came over and we sat there until 4:00am talking and laughing. I will always remember my dear friend Dale. He always had my back and all Pastors need a person like that.
    God Blessed all of us who knew Dale!

    Our friend and brother. 20 years of wonderful love for each other. He was a pistol and I could shoot right back at him. Live, laugh, love. We had them all. God welcomed home a fine man, a sweetheart, a warrior and one of our dearest people in the world. Via con Dios, Dale. Till we meet on the golden shore. Te amo..

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We consider it an honor to have known Dale. We all had great fun in our Bible studies. It was always fun to pick on him. He was a good guy. Can’t wait to see him in heaven rejoicing.

    Dale was always there for me even when i didn’t realize it. His last words to me were right before I moved to Connecticut, “I love you son.” Something that sounds so small to some, meant a ton to me because i grew up not really knowing my dad for unmentioned reasons.
