I will always remember that Dale, was the one that gave me the nickname Inky. Which has followed me my whole life, through elementary, middle, and high school. And what my friends and family still call me. He had a great sense of humor. I remember his laugh. RIP Dale. Your cousin Inky,
I always enjoyed our family breakfast with him and his stories. He was a very kind man. Every time when I wear one of his scarves 🧣 I will remember him.
