A private family funeral service will be held Monday, June 22, at Cedar Memorial Chapel of Memories. A

Dale could often be found meandering the aisles of Menards planning his next project out at the house. He took pride in his landscaping, his trees and his home, a home that sheltered his beautiful wife and family.
