I met Eddy at Foyer Lacombe where one of his children would visit him every day. I thought he must have been a real special man to bring up such a loving close family. My best wishes to his family.

My memories of Mr. Dales go back almost 50 years....going to the house with Lorna after school, hanging out in the store on main street before it moved to the new location across the road from the community hall....great memories. A good man who always welcomed the friends of his children. My deepest condolences to the Dales Family.

To Eddy's family, please accept my sincerest condolences.

The Onoway community has lost a champion, as Eddy always championed for a better community. Everyone who knew Eddy are thinking of him and what made him an amazing man in thier eyes. I will share a couple points below.

Eddy shared his knoweledge with everyone. I remenber one time in school he had brought in a gatling gun and spoke about its history and the era it was used, what a great history lesson.

Many of the memories I have of him was when I joined the fire department as a junior firefighter, Eddy was the Fire Chief at the time. Eddy faithfully served his community for many years prior and played a huge role in setting up the Village of Onoway, at the time, to better protect its residents.

Rest in Peace.

One beautiful summer afternoon, I happened to be conversing with a very wise man. I didn't have too many good thoughts to share with him so he shared one with me. He told me "Not to waste positive energy on negative thinking" and I remember that to this very day. Thank you Mr. Dales for sharing your wisdom with me. ~Ed

My deepest condolences to the Dales family in their loss of Eddy.
I met 'Uncle Eddy' while working for his brother, Rex and over the years had many good telephone visits with him when he would call the office.
He, in the dead of a bitter, cold Edmonton winter would bring such a burst of warmth and sunshine to the day when he would say the the sky was blue, the birds were singing and the palm trees were swaying in the breeze in 'beautiful downtown Onoway'. Then he would laugh. (Truth be told, there was lots of fresh snow on the ground with nary a spec of blue in the sky and the bitter winter wind was whipping that same snow across the ground!)
He loved his family and his community. He was a most proud man. He will be missed.
April-12-14
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. God grant you peace as you celebrate your father's life. Hold the memories close to your heart.

This is such a very sad loss not only for the Dales families but also for the Onoway community as a whole. Eddy was such a wonderful man. As a kid growing up in the Onoway area, when coming into town, one stop was always the Eddy Dales General Store, on main street at the time. Eddy, with that fabulous smile, always took the time for aquick chat. with young and old alike, making the store a warm, friendly, welcoming place in Onoway.

With fond childhood memories, took me a long time to figure out how that famous "Dipping bird" on the ledge in the back of the store worked.

Thank you Eddy. You will be greatly missed.
April-12-14
My thoughts and prayers are with you all through this time of sorrow. Eddy was a wonderful man who always had a smile on his face and a caring and giving heart. He will always be remembered fondly in my heart.
