    My deepest condolences to Colleen and family regarding Dale’s passing. I got to know Dale as a youngster through his friendship with my Father. He was always so friendly and had a great sense of humor. He was one of my Dad’s friends who I really liked. I believe Dale was the one who introduced me to country music. During hunting outings Dale always had the radio dial tuned to a country western station. RIP Dale, thanks for leaving good memories of you.

    Dale and Colleen were our wonderful neighbors on Oywhee Drive. They were full of kindness and generosity. Our children loved to see them & always looked for Dale to be outside working on his beautifully kept yard or Colleen tending her lovely flowerbeds. Dale always had a good wine to recommend to us to try; we still have a bottle of delicious Bordeaux we bought from his store.
    Our love and thoughts are with you Colleen.

    We were also neighbors of Dale and Colleen on Owyhee Drive. They were wonderful neighbors. Also growing up in Mountain Home I went to school with their son Brad. Dale and Colleen would bring us cookies for Christmas and they helped my young son find his escaped tortoise who was just chilling in their backyard under a bush. Our thoughts are with Colleen and their children.

    We want the family to know that you have our thoughts and prayers during this time. We considered Dale to be one of our best friends during the time we lived in Idaho . We have fond memories of Dale and Coleen as neighbors and members of the “Good Times Gang”. I had the privilege to know Dale as a fellow educator, business man and golf partner. We had some great times hunting sage hens on the Brace Ranch in SW Idaho. Dale was the chef for the crew and we never lacked of food and laughter. May God Bess and keep the family safe and healthy.

    From the Lee family
    We want Colleen, Karen, Brad and their families to know how sorry we were to hear of Dale’s passing. We had many “Good Times” together, enjoying Dale’s marvelous cooking and storytelling. We did try to mail a sympathy card, but it was returned to us today. May all the wonderful memories you shared as a family sustain you and give you peace and comfort.
