    I am so very sorry Lorraine and Kelly for your loss. Dale has been a client of mine for a few years now. This news is so shocking and I’m quite taken back as to his sudden passing; it wasn’t that long ago he walked in the Barbershop. Our conversations were always so valuable to me. The closeness of his family were so important to him, and he would always be such a wealth of knowledge on places to travel. I will donate in Dale’s memory. I am so very sorry.

    To Lorraine and Family,

    I received the new last Friday of Dale’s passing and was deeply saddened by it. Dale was my boss, supervisor, and friend. Dale always took the time to share his knowledge and insight, and to provide direction when needed. He always looked out for others, and had a high sense of integrity not only in his words, but in his actions. It has been several years since I have had the availability of Dale’s guidance…but a few weeks ago…I kept thinking…”what would Dale have done in this situation”.

    Dale’s character and principles were never compromised and he was always there to back you in a difficult situation.

    Even though we did not get an opportunity to meet. He spoke often of his wife Lorraine, his daughter, and his golden retriever. They were all priorities in his life.

    Dale will be missed.

    Dale was a good friend for many years. After several failed attempts to reach Dale by email we discovered his passing.
    Dale was a great man with a wicked sense of humour and was a wonderful friend. I particularily enjoyed our business travel together.
    You are missed my friend.
