My deepest condolences to the family. I also worked at Mountain Bell and knew Dale as a sweet and gentle man at work. He was always kind and helpful to all his co-workers and treated everyone with respect. Prayers and thoughts to all.

Dearest Pam and family,

I was so very sorry to hear about Dale. I can't imagine the pain and loss you're going through right now. He was a kind and loving man. Our prayers are with you and your family. I'm sure my mom and grandparents were there to welcome him home with smiles on their faces and love in their hearts!

Pam and family, I was so saddened to hear of Dale’s death. I met you and Dale many times at my sister Phyllis’s or my mom and dad’s ( Martha and Gilbert). They all thought the world of both of you. Dale gave much to the world. It was a better place with him in it. Mary Lou Nosco Nevada, Iowa
