Dales’s friend Harold called me and told the sad news of Dale’s passing, We had no idea since we didn’t see it in the paper or else we would have come to the funeral. We used to ride the White Pine Trail with him through the years and even went on kayak trips. Lots of fun (and stories) such as when he went over the small falls backwards in his kayak on the lower Rogue! LOL. Please know that we are also grieving his loss.

We are so very sorry for your loss.
