Passed away on May 12th, 2014 in Sacramento, California after a long battle with cancer. He was born in Lodi, California on October 11th, 1949 to Floyd James Younger and Retha Younger. He spent most of his adult life living in the Yuba Sutter area.
Although a car accident in 1966 left Dale a quadriplegic, he never complained or felt sorry for himself. Instead, he tried to do as much as he could to keep up with everyone else. It was not unusual to see him riding a snow mobile or riding on an inner tube behind a ski boat. He tried to live life to the fullest regardless of his disability. Dale also volunteered countless hours to the Easter Seals organization during their yearly telethons. Including one particular fund raising year, he raised thousands of dollars by physically wheeling his wheelchair from Yuba City to Sacramento.
Dale is preceded in death by his father Floyd James Younger; his mother Retha Love, and his brother Larry "Keith" Younger.
He is survived by his two sisters, Vickie (Bill) Hedden of Oroville, and Traci (Rob) Landon of Yuba City; three nieces, Sonia Younger of Lodi, Chasity Beutler of Yuba City, and Stacy Beutler of Reno, Nevada; three nephews, Briston Callison of Seoul, Korea, Vincent Uriuas of Lodi and Carter Landon of Yuba City.
Graveside services will be held on Friday, May 16th at Sutter Cemetery in Sutter, California at 3:30 p.m.
Services are being held under the direction of Ullrey Memorial Chapel.
