To the family of Dale he was a very nice man. We had the pleasure of doing business with him. Dale always had a smile on his face and kind words to say I remember going in Dale's Auto Sales and on slow days he would be sitting there playing solitary. Our kids always like him and he would let them have a piece of candy. I always felt like he really cared about his customers even after he sold the business he would stop to talk when he would see you out. My God Bless the family and our sincere condolences
