Dale grew up between Texas and California, settling in California, where he met and married the love of his life Lorrie. If you ever met Dale, you knew he loved Lorrie and his family with all his heart and soul. They were married for 39 ½ years, and made their first home in California.
Dale was a veteran, serving his country in the United States Navy. After leaving the Navy, he worked for Mare Island Naval Shipyard in California, and then moving to Port Orchard, Washington to work for Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in 1994, as an electrician and ocean engineer until he retired in 2017.
Dale was a gentle and kind man, who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He loved the Lord with all his heart. He loved his family, fishing, the ocean, friends, working on cars, and was a big fan of the Seattle Seahawks, and Seattle Mariners. He had the amazing ability to fix anything and loved tinkering around his new home, and cars. It has always been said in our family, “If he couldn’t fix it no one could.” He gave amazing joy, belly busting laughter, and the blessed gift of pure love to his family, friends, and anyone he came into contact with. He will leave the biggest hole in our hearts, but we know we will see him in heaven one day. Although he is not here physically with us, he leaves such a legacy of love through his family. We were blessed to have had him in our lives, and he will be so greatly missed. Rest in peace love of my life….till we meet again.
Dale requested that in lieu of a service he be cremated and placed into the ocean. At a later date the family will join to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers or if you wish to honor Dale, you may do so by making a donation in his name, to support the cure for pancreatic cancer, or a charity of your choice.
On behalf of his family, we want to thank all of you who prayed, helped provide care, support, meals, and love during his illness. We are blessed to have you in our lives.
