    Growing up with Dale will always be in my memory. The things we did and the fun we had. He was the closest thing to a brother that I could have had. I will miss him much.

    So sad to hear of your loss. I have many memories of Dale and me growing up as a couple of farm kids from the north side of Gaylord. We had some great times just messing around our farms together.
    Rest in Peace my Friend
