Dale was a kind and gentle man. I only had an inkling of all his accomplishments. My heart goes out to you during this time of grief. God's blessings on your family.

Dear Carol, Glen & Mary,
I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I have fond memories of our Sundays at St. Andrews and school days in Carbondale. Your mom was always so sweet too. In recent years I had seen your dad at some Washington University events on occasion. He certainly lived life to the fullest. May God comfort you in this time of loss.
Sincerely,
Tracy Justice

I was saddened to read about the passing of Dr. Besterfield in the Post-Dispatch. He was my advisor at SIUC, both before and after being drafted in 1968, while earning my EE degree. He was always understanding and very helpful especially after my return from the Army. He also encouraged me to go to graduate school which was very beneficial in receiving a position at Emerson Electric and later at McDonnell Douglas/Boeing. I have always been grateful. May he rest in peace.
