Janet, Michael and Lavon,
You are always in our hearts, but especially at this sad time.
We have never
heard him say an unkind word to anyone since we have known him.
He was a great uncle and will be forever missed.
Rick, Cinda, Brent and Kelly
Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this time. We know how much your Dad will be missed. We have
no doubt that he is already embroidering angel wings on hats for those in heaven.
Frank & Derek
Thinking of you at this sad
time. Prayers go out to you and your family.

A good hearted
man that had a huge impact on my formative years. He was always kind to his son Michael and all of Michael's friends.
I remember he drove us to our first ever rock concert at Hershey, and waited in the parking lot to take us home. He was a
very dedicated father to Michael, and I am a better person for having known Dale.
So sorry to hear of Dale's passing.
Sending prayers for the family!
He was such a good and kind man.
Dave, Sue, Sara and Luke Billman
