Milo Dralle

Monday, February 15th, 2021

Milo Duane Dralle, beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather passed away peacefully at his home, after making his final round checking on his cattle.

Milo, age 82 was born in Gayville, South Dakota, the 13th of 14 children, born to Clarence and Hulda Dralle.  In 1947 the family moved to Bellingham, Washington.

In 1955 he met Patricia Grimbly and they eloped to Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, and were married on August 10, 1956.  As a young man Milo was a log truck owner and operator.  He then went on to become a drywall contractor for many years.  After retirement he enjoyed spending time on the farm raising beef cattle.  He and Pat also enjoyed traveling.  His favorite destination was Maui.

Milo is survived by his wife, Pat of almost 65 years; sons, Steve Dralle, Joe (Christy) Dralle, Chuck Dralle; daughter, Lori (Rod) Ledbetter; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; sister, Amy; brother, Alan (Carol); and numerous nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his parents; six sisters; five brothers; granddaughter, Darci; daughter-in-law, Sharry.

A casual Celebration of Milo’s life will be held on Saturday, February 27, 2021 from 1:00 – 4:00PM at the Christ the King Church, 1000 Fountain St., Burlington, WA 98233, south entrance.  Cremation arrangements are under the care of Lemley Chapel.  Share your memories of Milo and sign the online guest register.

    I have very fond memories of visiting Milo and Pat’s property with my grandparents, Janice and John McCaffery, when I was just a little kid. We used to cut wood all day and roast hot dogs on the brush fires. My condolences to the Dralle family. Milo was always a very kind man and one of my grandma’s closest siblings.

    What a nice Man. I met Milo in the early 80s and over the years saw him when he needed tractor parts.

    Milo was one of my favorite cousins. When we were kids, my late brother, Bob, and I would visit the Dralle farm outside Bellingham and stay over Spring Vacation with Milo’s Mom (my Dad’s oldest sister) and Dad and his sisters, Ardyce, Amy and younger brother Alan. We had a great time playing softball out in the yard. When Milo heard we were coming, he would say: “the City dudes are coming to visit”. When we arrived, we would go out to the barn to say Hi and he would look up from milking a cow and hit us in the face with a squirt of warm milk. He was a fun and generous man, great husband to Pat and father to his kids. We will miss him.
