For most of his career, Dale worked in the automotive industry, including Polar Chevrolet and Tousley Ford, both in White Bear Lake, Harry Browns Chevrolet in Faribault, and Clements Chevrolet in Rochester. Dale had an impeccable work ethic. He lived in service to others and did so with a positive attitude.

There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for his family. He will be deeply missed by all.
He is met in Heaven by his parents; daughter, Tamera; sister, Faith Bollinger, and many other loved ones and pets. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda; daughter, Amy; son, Matthew; granddaughter, Nikki; and many other loving relatives and friends.
