Dale served his country in the United Sates Army as a member of the Army Chemical Corps located at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Baltimore, MD. Dale married Helen Stickler on October 25, 1952. The couple happily celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in 2017 in Atlanta, GA at their favorite French restaurant, Bistro Niko. He was employed as a Superintendent at Amoco Oil Company, retiring in 1990 after 38 years of service.Dale attended Northside Drive Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA and Grace Covenant Church in Iron River, MI. He loved cars, penny banks and his time at the family home in the northwoods of Wisconsin. But most of all he loved his time with his wife, children and grandchildren, whom he all loved passionately. He always enjoyed a good conversation particularly when he could "brag" on all of his grandchildren. He and Helen had a magnificent 28 year retirement living in Northern Wisconsin, Colorado and Georgia. Dale is survived by his wife, Helen; son, Jonathan Schroeder of Atlanta, GA; daughter, Jane (Stan) Ryan of Denver, CO; grandchildren, Maria Schroeder and Teddy, Todd, Tara, and Trent Saldivar; extended family and friends.
