WATKINS, Dale - Austin  
WATKINS, Dale Dale Watkins died August 9th at 2:30 AM of pneumonia suffered as a complication from leg surgery at the VA hospital in Temple. Known for his charm, personality, generosity and humor, he was best known as Dale of Dales Auto Parts, a household name in Austin thru the 70's and 80's. A polite and outgoing man of compassion, honesty and energy, he began life in tiny Elsey, Missouri born at home in 1936 to Joy Clover Watkins and Maggie Ritter, the youngest of eight children. He was raised near Bakersfield, California where he joined the Air Force after graduating high school, then served in Korea. Upon returning, he relocated to Houston and began working with his brother Ray for the Pettigrew-Smith auto parts chain. In the fall of 1970 Dale moved to Austin and opened his first store on S. Congress Avenue, the first of what would grow to 18 locations by the late 80's; all of which were open every day of the year excepting Christmas. Dale will be remembered by hundreds of former employees, friends, and associates and family as a hard-working and dedicated man with a sincere and personal interest in all of the lives he touched. He was passionate about country music, history, politics, animals and occasionally football. Dale Watkins was a good man and founder of an Austin institution. He will truly be missed. We rejoice in the rich and special life he was able to live. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Austin Pets Alive in his name. An informal memorial will be held on Sunday, September 6th at Matts El Rancho on South Lamar at 11:15AM

WIELAND, Roger E. - Dallas  
WIELAND, Roger E. Roger E. Wieland was born May 23, 1924 to Gertrude and Peter Wieland in Freeport Illinois and departed this world August 21, 2015 in Cedar Park, Texas. He was a devoted husband, loving father and proud grandfather. Roger was gentle, kind and patient and found satisfaction in helping others both in his business and personal life. His unique sense of humor softened many of life's sharp edges. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Janice Abels Wieland. Together they had two children, their daughter Cynda Wieland Bouse and her husband Jacob; their son Roger Vance Wieland and his wife Deborah. Their grandchildren include, Christopher Vance Wieland and wife Olga, Laurel Ashliegh Wieland and Zachary Jacob Wieland. Roger also leaves behind two nieces and their families; Rhonda Becker, her husband Norm and their children Ryan and Adrienne; Angela Snyders and her husband Dave all of Freeport, Illinois. A nephew, Craig Cline and his wife of Portland Oregon. Following his graduation from Freeport Senior High School in 1943, where he was an active member of the winning State Playoff basketball team, Roger was drafted into the U.S. Army. He departed to Mineral Wells, Texas for Basic Training and served in the 1st Army 16'" Infantry. Later that year, he continued specialized training in heavy weaponry in England in preparation for the D-Day Invasion of Normandy. On June 6, 1944 he participated in the first wave of U.S. soldiers who endured the stormy crossing of the English Channel and landed at Omaha Beach. His company fought across France and Belgium and while hiking up a trail in the Argonne forest Roger was taken captive by a German tank crew. He was a German Prisoner of War at Stalag 7A near Munich in Southern Germany. He existed there until April1945 when the Allied Forces overcame the German enemy. After several months he returned to U.S, shores and served his country in Washington D. C. as a Military Police Officer. He was honorably discharged in November 1945 and was awarded a Good Conduct medal, a Presidential Unit Citation, a Marksman Badge and Rifle Bar, a European Campaign Medal with a Triple Bronze Star, A World War II Victory Medal and an Honorable Service Lapel Button. Later, Mr. Wieland enrolled at the University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in 1952. He was an active brother of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity. On June 18, 1950 he married Janice C. Abels of Freeport Illinois and they relocated to Dallas, Texas where Roger began his career in business and finance. He retired in 1989 following an extended tenure as Vice President of a bank in Richardson, Texas. Roger was raised in the Lutheran faith and attended worship services regularly. While in Dallas, Roger and Janice were co-leaders of the University of Illinois Alumni Association, co-teachers of a Casa Linda Presbyterian children's Sunday school class, active members of Chi Omega Alumni Couples' Night Owls and members of The Rejebian book club. Roger was honored in 2014 as a life member of the Cedar Park VFW Post 911. During their retirement years Roger and Janice were blessed with the beauty and tranquility of Halcyon Farm, their small ranch in Navarro County, along with their Australian Shepard dogs and Arabian horses, mowing, fishing, hiking and watching the sun set. There they learned what "peaceful" truly means. One of Roger's rewarding hobbies was to create objects and decor of beauty from his small woodworking shop table, to share with family and friends. He was an avid golfer and upon retirement set his briefcase down and picked up his golf clubs. He enjoyed more than 30 years of golfing with his brother-in-law, Dr. Phillip E. Coldwell, husband of Norma A. Coldwell (Janice's sister). They especially enjoyed golfing in Oxford, England and Washington, D.C. A highlight of his golfing career was achieving a Hole-- In-One in Dallas, Texas. On his 90'h birthday, Texas State Representative, Tony Dale attended a celebration hosted by Roger's family. Roger was presented with a flag that had flown the previous day over the State Capital in Austin, Texas to honor his service to his country. A memorial service to celebrate Roger's life will be held on Friday, September 11th at 12:30pm in the Wildwood Chapel at Restland of Dallas.
