Dale Victorino Cabalbal went to his Eternal Rest on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, at Providence Adult Critical Care Unit, following a sudden illness, with his family at his side. He was 68. Dale was a Vietnam Veteran and retired after 20 years of service in the U.S. Army. He and his family were reassigned to Elmendorf AFB in Alaska in 1978, and remained in Anchorage. He then went on to work for and retired from the U.S. Postal Service. He was a lifetime member of VFW 1685, an active member of American Legion Post 28, Na Keiki o Hawaii Hawaiian Civic Club, FOE 4207, AK Team Poker, Windy City Dart League, GABCO Pool Team Downtown Pool League and was a musician in the Hawaiian Time Band. Nothing was more important to Dale than his family, and treasured time spent with them. This included extended family that chose to be a constant in his life. He had a magnetic personality and an infectious smile. Dale loved fishing, going to bingo and living the "retired life." He was an avid volleyball player and Volleyball Official for many years. He played with the All-Army Volleyball team while in the military, and was chosen to play in three Arctic Winter Games after retiring. Dale's family takes pride in the fact that he chose to help others by being an organ donor. Dale is survived by Linda, his wife of almost 50 years; daughter, Kimi Cabalbal-Vigesaa (Vince Vigesaa); and son, Kevin Cabalbal (Angela Hartsfield-Cabalbal); along with his grandchildren, who were his reason for smiling; as well as his sister, Maize Lacar (Richard Lacar); and numerous nieces and nephews. There will be a potluck Celebration of Life on Sunday, Dec. 20, 2015, at 2 p.m., with Military Honors at American Legion Post 28 on Brayton Drive. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to suggest either becoming an organ donor or considering a contribution to: LifeCenter Northwest 3650 131st Ave. SE, St. 200, Bellevue, WA 98006.
