Dale was one of my roommates in my junior year at Ohio U in Athens in 1975-76. We met while working at the student radio station. He was a wonderful person, and I am very sorry to hear of his passing. May he rest in peace.

Dale was my neighbor, I live across the street from him. He was such a sweet man. Last Halloween he dressed up as a scarecrow to give out candy and my son just loved it. He even let my son take a handful of candy instead of one piece, it was so sweet. I’m so sorry to hear of his passing.

I am feeling the pain of Dale leaving, he was such a good man and a man of God. We would get together over at his condo and have Bible study with a few of the brothers, I truly will miss him and have hope to see him again in the lords kingdom. The world has lost another truly Christian soldier. Praise the Lord
