On January 22, 2023, after a long illness, Dale Lang, 81, passed away peacefully while surrounded by family.

Born to William & Francis Lang in Calgary, AB, Dale was sociable, even-tempered, and fun-loving. He loved sports and was very competitive, in his earlier years he liked to play fast ball. He continued playing ball and into his later years he played slow pitch. Dale became very adept at curling, and he won regularly. He also loved horses and was able to co-own a race horse for four years with R.J. Bennet.

Dale was a member of the RCMP, and he served for 28 years across Canada: in Nelson, BC; Crescent Valley, BC; Burnaby, BC; Ottawa, ON; and Regina, SK. During his working years, Dale like to holiday in sunny spots and after retirement he loved to travel abroad and see different parts of the world.

Predeceased by his parents; his parents-in-law, Ronald & Golda Hood; and his sister-in-law Loretta Ritthaler, Dale is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Marguerite; his two sons Jason (Alana) and Bob (Vicki), and his daughter Dori; his five grandchildren Myles (Caitlin), Alexandra, Mikayla, Ryder, and Dailan; and his great-grandson Harrison. He will also be remembered by his sister Myrna Lang; and his sister-in-law Joyce (Glenn) Laycock; as well as by his numerous nieces and nephews and their families.

Dale was good-natured and will be missed dearly. Dale enjoyed life immensely.

  • Larry Proke says:

    Dear Marg and family – I was very saddened when I learned that Dale passed away. Please accept my very sincere condolences.
    I was transferred to “F” Division HQ, Regina in 1976 and met Dale . We ended up curling on the same RCMP team for the next 2 winters. We curled league play in Regina as well as various bonspiels and police curling events for 2 winters. We became good friends both at work and during our participation in sports activities. I will cherish many fond memories of our time together, which included a fun-filled weekend our team members and wives spent in Fargo, North Dakota to celebrate our “curling season”.!

  • Allan de St Remy says:

    Marg and family: Pat and I are so sorry for your loss. I was so fortunate to have known Dale for almost 60 years. Dale was certainly one of a kind and the best thing I could say is that I have never ever heard a bad word ever spoken against Dale. I was also fortunate that I was able to see the service on the internet. It was a wonderful service and I will long remember it. Our love to you and your family. Allan & Pat.

  • Jack Latimer says:

    Sharon and I were sorry to learn of Dale’s passing. We both met Dale over 50 years ago in Regina. Sharon worked with him at “F” Division HQ’s and I curled, golfed and played ball with Dale. The highlight of our curling time together was in 1984 when our team represented Saskatchewan at the Canadian Police Curling Championship in Summerside, PEI. Dale was a keen competitor and a gentleman both on and off the ice. We also enjoyed the times we socialized with both of you and have fond memories of those days. We were able to watch the service online and it was a wonderful tribute to Dale. We are very sorry for your loss. Jack and Sharon Latimer.
