Janet, Jr, kiri, tara and Rachel

Our hearts break for you guys. I already feel the emptiness without him in this world. His personality was immense , short fuse but always quick to apologize and forget. His stories stay with me and always bring a smile to my face remembering them. Hands down the best boss I've ever worked for . Thoughts and prayers are with you guys .

Brown Family;

Sorry for your loss. My family I will be unable to attend the service. I can still picture Dale regularly sitting at the snack bar talking with my late mother Helen at Elk Lanes. My children also remember many a fire engine ride after Sunday morning breakfasts at the fire house!
