Dale was born in Grande Prairie, Alberta on June 18, 1940 and travelled across Canada many times during his life. In 1965 he came to British Columbia and in 1969 settled here in Revelstoke. He had worked as an underground miner and worked on the Mica Dam. Dale was very proud of the fact that he had just celebrated 37 years alcohol and drug free. He was very involved with Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous and was a member of the Revelstoke Seniors Center. Dale enjoyed playing cards and was quite ‘a crib shark’, he also enjoyed listening to music, yard saleing and swap meets, and was especially fond of collecting watches. Dale and Lenora loved to travel and enjoyed their trips across Canada and throughout the United States.
