He continued his love for sports throughout his life; he was an avid Nebraska Cornhuskers fan as well as a North Dakota Hockey and North Dakota State Football fan. Dale had deep faith; he was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jamestown. Dale loved his family and was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle.
