    Dear Dale. Our paths did not cross often enough, as I will never forget the first time we met when you visited Chris in Pullman. Spare tires on the Winnebago, Onions, VHS tapes, Football game and Whisky.

    A bag of onions will never be looked at the same, without thinking of you Dale. RIP.

    So sorry to hear of Dale’s passing, We had so many good times camping especially at Eagle Valley with he and Sharon. He and my Dale (gone since 2019)will have a lot to talk about in heaven I’m sure.

    My first encounter with the Clark Family Reunions was with a greeting from Dale and Arlo. The welcoming embrace was one of belonging to a greater family. and now he has been given a hug from his Almighty Father God. What a celebration that is going on in heaven for him.
    Oh! and then there is the North Dakota Family Reunion when Dale lost his luggage. We had such a good time sharing family times. Then there was the two hay wagons throwing hay at each other as we tried to get the trucks to pull us all up the hill. Laughed to hard. Thanks for sharing you Dad with me.

    A great living life to the fullest man, we had many years of friendship in our Redneck Christmas group and our love of dancing to our favorite band. He will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to the family at this time. Rest in peace.
    Love Lesley and Reggie
