I was heartbroken when I heard about Dale's passing. He was truely a very special man. I have known Dale for over 40 years at his garage. Fixed & inspected many of my cars, and he knew how bad I had it and made it easy for me to pay. He was a rare, kind, generous, compassionate man. His smile and kind heart, and always the gentleman. He will be remembered always! My sincere & deepest condolences to his family. RIP Dale!

Dale and Ona hold a special place in my heart. They took me in when I was a troubled teenager.
