To The Rogers Family,

You have my deepest sympathy. Capture all the good memories. I worked with Dale at Timken and will never forget that he gave me a piece of scrap steel about eight years ago from the Machine Shop that helped my daughter build up her wrists and forearms for swimming. This helped give my daughter the strength to become the excellant swimmer she is today. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your husband. I know how that feels. It's ironic that Dale died on the 10th anniversary of my husband Bob's death. Maybe they will meet up there. I know that people say that time heals and it does, believe me. If I can be of help to you, please call me. I'm in the book under Shaw, R.L. & C.L. Love , Cheryl

To Dale's wife and daughters,
Dale will be greatly missed by all of us in the shops at Timken. He was a guy who knew everyone's job and always willing to help. I for one will miss both his wisdom and his pleasant and often jolly nature.

I went through my apprenticeship alongside Dale and worked near him for many years. He was always helpful and never abrasive. One of the good guys. - Harold Pyle

Dear Rogers Family,
My deepest sympathy to all of you on the loss of your beloved husband and father. I had the privilege of serving on church council with Dale in the late 90's. He was such a warm and kind man. I, too, lost my husband, Terry suddenly in October. May God wrap you all in his arms of comfort.
