CEDARVILLE — Dale E. Nordyke, age 76 of Columbus, formerly of Cedarville passed away on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at First & Main Assisted Living. He was born on January 27, 1942 in Wilmington, Ohio to the late Homer and Helen (Rhoades) Nordyke. In addition to his parents, Dale is preceded in death by his beloved wife of 53 years, Lynda "Lynn" Nordyke as well as his brother, John L. Nordyke. Dale is survived by his son Jeff (Kristin) Nordyke; his daughter, Amy (Ben) Struewing, grandchildren: Reese Nordyke, Caleb Struewing and Brady Struewing, his sister-in-law, Sondra Nordyke as well as niece, Susan Davis and nephew, Alan Nordyke. Dale was a devoted husband to Lynn and they always enjoyed their time near the ocean in Florida. Both were amazingly dedicated to their grandchildren and spent as much time as possible with them. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed listening to country music. Dale taught accounting, health and physical education for Cedarville High School and coached the boys' varsity basketball for over 30 years. If you were a player on Dale's team, you knew his offense was referred to as the "shuffle" and defense as "kachina." He also ran a basketball camp in Cedarville for nearly ten years. Not only was Dale a teacher and a coach, he was a mentor, role model and friend. He influenced the lives of so many of the youth in Cedarville and will be sorely missed by the whole community. A visitation will be held on Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Grace Baptist Church, Cedarville. His funeral will follow on Friday, September 14 beginning on 12:00 noon. Dale will be laid to rest at North Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family is creating a scholarship for a young athlete to continue Dale's legacy.
