My memories of Dale Reed . Dale was a great guy I have known Dale for many years through my mother-in-law . We would attend church on Sundays and then get a bite to eat before going on with our day. Dale is the kind of guy that you could ask questions on anything and he always had an answer he was so mechanically inclined he could fix anything. We would get together a couple times a month and take what we called a road trip way over in Indiana somewhere around Brookville Lake get a sandwich go look at the water and enjoy the day . We would always find an old church with a cemetery and look at all the headstones dates , Crazy something Old guys like to do. We would always have a lot of laughs rendering the worlds problems over a cold Coke. I'm gonna miss my old road traveling buddy and a good walleye sandwich. Rest in peace my friend you will always be remembered.

Dear Pat. I know Dale is flying high with his angels in heaven. I was so fortunate to meet you and Dale. God sent you both to our church to enrich our lives with your Christain love. Dale was always so happy go lucky when he came to church each Sunday. He always had the biggest hug for me. I wlil always remember Dale for those hugs. Pat, you know that Dale is in Heaven now but always remember we all love you so much and we are always here for you. May God comfort you in your loss of your loving husband Dale. R.I.P. my loving friend.
