June 25, 1948 — January 7, 2023

Dale worked for Southwestern Bell and retired with 35 years of service. He completed his working years working for Maverick Communications in Beaumont, Texas. Dale was an avid supporter of the Nederland Bulldogs and loved the Dallas Cowboys. He enjoyed white perch fishing, a good round of golf and was known to hit the bowling lanes from time to time. Dale was a bowling champion from 1971-1973. He and his father, Percy enjoyed being members of the Money Bowling League. He loved to dance, loved his wife’s cooking, loved a good outdoor barbecue, and enjoyed sharing a beer with friends. He was passionate about and loved his entire family. All his grandchildren shared a special place in his heart. Dale had a glowing personality and was known to be a jokester, even though some of his jokes turned out to be corny, he still enjoyed telling them. He was a man that never met a stranger. He always seemed to know people no matter where he went and he always welcomed everyone as though they were family. Simply said, “To know him was to love him”. He will be loved and missed by his family and countless friends.
