Eddie Dale flew away on his racing wings on March 14, 2012. He passed away peacefully at his home.|
Eddie was born on April 17, 1962 to Dale and Dollie Dale in Porterville, California where he resided his entire life.
He was the beloved husband of Merry Dale for over twenty years and the proud father of Jessica and Dewey (Samantha) Dale.
Eddie touched the lives of many people with his smile and generosity, and maintained his well-known and cherished story telling skills and sense of humor all the way to the end.
Eddie was a great man with a big loving heart and would give the shirt off his back to a person in need. He had an undying commitment to his great family and loved racing.
He often talked about his kids and how they had done things that had amazed him. The world lost a great man with one of the biggest hearts most have ever known. He will be remembered as a good friend, father, husband, son, and all around one of the best guys on earth. He told the most magnificent stories about racing and life and it was common to laugh for hours when spending time with Eddie. He was always smiling and making everyone around him smile.
Eddie was preceded in death by his loving mother, Dollie Dale. Eddie will forever be remembered by his devoted wife and daughters, his father, Dale Dale, sister, Tamera Keen (Robert), brother Ricky Dale (Joanie), and many other dear family members and beloved friends.
We wave the checkered flag for our beloved husband, father, son and brother Eddie Dale.
