The couple was united in marriage on December 9, 1967 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Brainerd and spent their lives living in Brainerd. Dale devoted his life to his family. He was well known around Brainerd and treated everyone like family. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He loved spending time talking about his younger years and about history. Dale was passionate about hot-rods, hunting, business, and nature. He enjoyed spending time with the Westgate Mall Community where he ran his last business. Dale is loved by many and he will be greatly missed.

Dale would want us to remember how much he loved spending time with his family and friends talking about the good old days.
