What a loss for the world. Dale was a humble human, a respected co-worker, a dedicated father and a friend to many. Some things I remember about Dale are:
How he knew everyone's name and what skills they had for each of his hundreds of employees; He adored his children; His silly dancing at the TRW Holiday party; and so many more. He lived his life like so many of us should - with feeling! My heart goes out to the family.

Mary and I are deeply saddened to hear of Dale's passing. He was a great man, and leader. Our thoughts and prayers always with his family.

I am so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of Dale. I worked with him when he joined TRW and later on Northrop Grumman. He was a great leader and kind in heart. He will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies and condolences to the entire family.

Sherry, This is a terrible shock. I am so sorry. I knew Dale when we deployed on ENTERPRISE (I was in VAW-113) and then again when he was in the Mountain (Space Command). I was honored to be a part of the effort to create his astronaut wings. A great man who will be greatly missed.

It was an honor to have worked with and known Dale during the development of the satellite retrieval equipment, training and mission operations for his flight on STS-51A. He was truly an officer and a gentleman. My sincere condolences to his family.

Capt Dale Gardner was a great boss, friend and mentor. He was so kind to me as a junior officer, was so gracious with my family and helped me get my first post_AF job. He also took time to visit the cadets I taught at USAFA. A humble man, who taught me so much. Thank you Dale. Jack

I was privileged to support Dale during his space flight and later serve with him at US Space Command. He was committed to excellence in all he did and a true gentleman. I was proud to know him and regret we have lost him too soon.

I cannot express the sadness I felt when I learned of Dale's passing. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family and the hundreds of friends he came to know. I had the opportunity to work for Dale at Schriever AFB, CO as a Security Specialist for TRW. He will be sorely missed. A special SALUTE to an American Hero!!
