  • Barney & Pat Bjornson says:

    Dale – thank you so much for your wonderful friendship over the past 40 years. It seems like yesterday that you moved into our Calgary neighborhood and the ritual of bridge games, dinners, visiting over the backyard fence, and later visits to various cities you settled in when your job relocated you from Calgary. Wonderful host, chef, people person, gardener (remember the fire department showing up at your house when burning garden cleanup in the fall!), card shark and a loving husband and dad. Our condolences to you Elouise, Bill and Colleen. Rest in peace Dale – we will miss you. Love, Barney & Pat, Carefree,, Az.

    Back in the late 1980’s, Dale was President of Westbrook Construction which was owned by PCL and eventually would become the PCL Civil Constructors that we have today. Dale would frequently come to Florida to review our bids. He would sometimes work his trip it in with a cruise or other vacation so he would be in his casual clothes (Hawaiian shirt, shorts and sandals) which we all found a little amusing in the bid review!
    I was amazed at the amount of knowledge Dale had without having to reference any books, binders, etc. But the thing that he had going for him the most was his people skills. What a great man and positive leader. I never heard a negative or pessimistic word out of his mouth. He always had a good joke or something to laugh about. He is a great example of leadership by building people up, not tearing them down.
    Dale liked to get away from the office and take impromptu walks with individual employees to get to know us on a more personal level. I was very young at the time but I was fortunate to be invited on one of those walks with him. I will always consider him as one of my top all time mentors.
