It is with sadness and sorrow the family and friends of Dale William Romahn announce his sudden passing due to a heart attack on June 23, 2020. Dale was 48 years old. Dale is survived by his mother Grace (formerly Schweitzer), brothers Paul (Jan), Neil (Christine), and sister Janette (Thomas). Dale cherished his four nieces and nephews Maria (Mark), Leigha (Steve), Curtis, and Nathan and took a keen and active role in their lives. Survived by his two uncles Bill Romahn (Beth) and Jim Romahn (Barb). Predeceased by his father, Durward Romahn, on March 17, 2020. Dale's love for the outdoors led him to pursue a career as a golf course equipment technician. Following his graduation from Kemptville College, University of Guelph in 1991, he went on to have a successful career working at Duke Lawn Equipment, Westmount Golf and Country Club, Deer Ridge Golf and Country Club, Club Car, and Graystone Golf and Country Club where he passed away. Dale was known as a loyal, trustworthy, and dedicated gentleman who was respected by all who worked with him and knew him. An independent, deep and quiet thinker, Dale preferred to stay behind the scenes to support those he cared about. Dale enjoyed spending time with his friends golfing, fishing, chess, football or listening to rock and roll. Those who knew him well would agree he had a mischievous sense of humour about him. His smile will live in our hearts forever.
