Dale will be remembered by his family as a true "jack of all trades", being able to help others with just about any problem.

I was a co-worker with Dale for 15+ years. Thought we were a good working team. Dale had a way of keeping me busy that made the day go fast. Dale was a dedicated worker at CIPS and I respected his work ethic. I'm sorry to hear that he has passed. We talked on the phone this Fall about our similar medical conditions (leukemia) and how we were dealing with our problems as well as revisit some of our fun times together at work. I'm sorry for your loss and want you to know that you're in my thoughts and prayers.
