My deepest sympathy to Dale's family and friends. I worked with Dale in his banking career, and always remember him as a wonderful person, filled with integrity. He went the extra mile and brought joy even in challenging times. Dale made our world a better place. He was a blessing to all who knew him.

I met Dale in September of 2017 when I started working at RGS. Dale quickly became somebody I could count on. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable but he had great work ethic. Dale always had a great attitude even when things were less than perfect. Dale was more than a co-worker, he became a friend that I looked forward to talking with. We had a bunch of great conversations that I will always remember. These conversations varied from how he liked his lasagna with lots of sauce to how a bunch of his family were rooting for Clemson in the National Championship game yet he was going for LSU. I remember him telling me about a group picture he photobombed when he raised up his sweater because he had the opposing teams T-shirt underneath. As much as I enjoyed and will remember our conversations and well as the many great qualities that made him such a good guy to know, the thing I will remember most is the way he would light up with pride when talking about his family. I never met his son Ryan but feel like I know him based on the numerous stories I have heard. Dale couldn’t be more proud of his family and the pride he had when he talked about them is what I will remember most.

Dale left a great imprint on this world as well as anybody that was fortunate to know him.

I miss you bud!!

“He has awakened from the dream of life” ~ Shelley


Dale was one of the kindest people I have ever known. He was a gentleman. A comedian. He was a joy to work with. We could talk for hours about musical memories. We had attended the same concerts in the 70’s and never knew it. Becoming a father was the greatest joy of his life. He valued family above everything. I will miss you my friend. I cannot believe you are gone.

To the family: I worked with Dale at Quadros & Swanson. He was so much fun, what a great sense of humor! And he also worked hard and was very good at his job - a person I sought for counsel when questions came up. Sorry to hear about his passing
