Dale E. Williams, 72, of Mountain Top, passed away Tuesday evening, Jan. 8, 2019, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.

Born on Nov. 14, 1946, in Scranton, he was the son of the late Edward and Margaret Brink Williams.

A graduate of Wallenpaupack High School, Class of 1964, he enlisted that summer to serve his country with the U.S. Navy. He served in Vietnam and aboard the USS Braine and received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Vietnam Campaign Medal. He was honorably discharged in November 1967.

Following his military service, he continued his education, earning an associate's degree in electrical engineering from Penn State, Scranton, and a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Wilkes College with a minor in physics and computer science.

Early in life, he was employed at RCA, Mountain Top, and Emcee Broadcast in White Haven. He enjoyed a long career as a self-employed electrical engineer, having installed television transmitters in the U.S. as well as foreign countries.

Dale was an active member of First Presbyterian Church, of Nanticoke, where he served as lay speaker, elder, and on the board of trustees. In his spare time, he enjoyed many hobbies including cooking, gardening and target shooting and was an avid reader.

He is survived by his wife, the former Robin Olver, with whom he shared 39 years of marriage; sisters, Cheryl Batchelor and husband, Teddy; Karen Hatton; and Margo Van Orden and husband, Gene, all of Lake Ariel; an aunt, Ann Reeves, Clarks Summit; and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday at First Presbyterian Church of Nanticoke, 229 E. Main St., Nanticoke, with Wayne Wolfe, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Carbondale, officiating.

Friends may call for visitation from 1 p.m. until the time of the service at the church.

If desired, in lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Dale's memory to First Presbyterian Church of Nanticoke.

Arrangements are in the care of Davis-Dinelli Funeral Home, 170 E. Broad St., Nanticoke.
