Dale worked for Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company in Everett for 35 years, holding many positions and making many friends throughout that time. He attended Everett Community College and City University where he obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Business.
Dale found his passion in martial arts and studied in Europe, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

Dale loved showing off his trophy room with at least 40 weapons that he knew how to use in martial arts training and tournaments, and his several earned awards, medals and certificates.
Dale loved his family, and was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather. So many friends and family loved Dale and the strong man he was. He entertained us as a great storyteller and lived his life in a manner that provided the material. We will all miss him, his zest for life, his sense of humor and those stories we loved hearing.
