Dale R. Dyches


Dale R. Dyches of Mesquite, NV passed away at his home on May 15, 2013 after a courageous 42 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. He was 72.

Dale was born in Moroni, UT on December 31, 1940 to Joseph and Leah Dyches. He graduated from North Sanpete High School. He married his high school sweetheart and love of his life Ruth Puzey. They recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

Dale retired from Questar after 30 years of service. He received the most joy from spending time with his family. Dale always looked for the good in people, and praised his children for following their dreams. "Learn from your past experiences they will help you in the future" was a favorite quote. Being a loving, passionate, caring husband, father and grandfather he will be sorely missed by all that knew him.

He is preceded in death by his parents and brother Joseph Gary Dyches.

Dale is survived by his wife Ruth and 4 children. Dyann and Billy Hall (Mesquite, NV), Craig and Shell Dyches (Midvale, UT), Gerry and Heather Dyches (West Jordan, UT), Mylisa and Dan Graham (Sandy, UT), 10 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Siblings Ruel and Karen Dyches (Payson, UT), Edgel and Marie Dyches (West Jordan, UT), Joann and Mont Peatross (Payson, UT), sister-in-law Charlene Dyches (Mesquite, NV) sister-in-law Patty and John Doherty (North Hills, CA), and brother-in-law Jerry and Jeanie Puzey (Hurricane, UT).

Celebration of his life will be held at Fairview Lakes on July 27th between 2:00 and 4:00.

Special thanks to Mesa View Hospice.

Ruth and Family,
So sorry to hear about Dale, Rue was on the mountain this weekend and told us. We remember so many good times with you and Dale. In fact Me and the grandkids was laughing this weekend about walking around the lake with you and me falling in the mud and you laughing so hard. One thing I know we have sure missed you both on the mountain.
At least the pain is gone for him now and no more suffering.

With love

We send our sympathy and condolences to the Dyches family at this time of sorrow. We didn't know him well, but worked with his brother, Gary, at Chevron Pipeline for years. We enjoyed the time we had visiting him and Ruth when we were around the area where they lived. A fine man and great family. May God give you peace and comfort in the coming days. Theil & Bonita Atkinson.

Goodbye To the best Father in law that anyone could ask for. You will be missed by so many people you have touched in your life. I am so lucky to be married to Dale and Ruth's son, Craig. As Craig is a spitting image of Dale. So heaven has received another angel. You are finally out of pain now. The night sky another star your life has become a loving memory we know you will never be far. I know you are watching over all of us as our life goes on. We will treasure all the memories we have of you. You will always hold a place in my heart a loving treasured spot. You were really one in a million a cut above the rest all that knew you would agree you simply were the best. We all need to say a pray for Ruth now and make sure she knows that there are many people who love her and will do anything to help with the pain and loneness she is and will be going through. . I love and miss you with all my heart.
