Dale was a force of calm, patience and kindness when I first started out as a very green freelancer for the Gazette. His quiet competence combined with a lack of ego made him a breath of fresh air as a co-worker and friend. Saying a prayer and wishing peace and comfort to Dale's family.

Dale was one great man in Kalamazoo Gazette newsroom. He was always there to help answer a question and be a true friend.
He really helped make the newsroom an enjoyable place to work.
RIP my friend. Judy Hale Johnson.

Dale was one of my favorite people and certainly one of my favorite bosses. Everything I think about the importance of local news coverage I learned from Dale. He was kind, fun, inclusive and a joy to be around, especially during the Hometown Gazette years. He was truly King of the Hometowns!
