Many remembered Dale by his giving heart and bright smile.  He was affectionately called "Smoke" by his family and friends.  He was known as a jokester.  Dale had a saying “Talk to me nicely or don’t talk to me at all,” and, “If you ain't got no haters, you ain't poppin.” He always called everyone "You's a goofy."  His favorite football team was the Washington Commanders, formerly known as the Washington Redskins.
