Dale was born February 4, 1945, in Hillsboro.  He graduated from Nokomis High School and went on to proudly serve our country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War.  Upon his honorable discharge, Dale worked on a farm in Delphos, KS, the Martin Elevator in Witt, and the Nokomis Township where he served as Highway Commissioner for several more years.  Dale was also a lifelong farmer, and he especially enjoyed checking fields on his side by side in his later years.
