    Brenda and I were sorry to hear of Dale’s passing. We met Dale in 2002 when he & I worked in a band together. We both moved on from that band and we remained friends. We stayed in touch after his relocation to Florida and have had many countless telephone conversations since then.
    We will miss our conversations with Dale, his sense of humor and positive outlook.

    It has taken me days to overcome the shock I have encountered from Dales' passing to write in and express my heartfelt sadness to Marie and Mary for thier loss. Dale,his brother Barry, and Dales mother and father have been in my life since I met them in my high school days, and the common glue that held us together was the love of music. That bond was as strong as ever for the last 45 years, so the news of Dale leaving us has deeply affected me and my family, as all of us so enjoyed his vibrant personallity and wit, let alone his talents in music and golf. When Dale moved from Pennsylvania to Florida we always kept in touch, and just as I was wondering why I haven't heard from Dale, we read the news and the world become a lonlier place all of a sudden.

    My deepest sympathy for your loss of Dale, your beloved son and father. My memories will always be filled with laughter and smiles when I think of Dale and all the good times we spent together at the driving range, his shop and on the golf course. Watching you, Mary, develop into a wonderful young woman, your father always talked about you every time we were together. You will always be his pride and joy. May God bless all of you and I will never forget Dale.

    I was saddened to read in the Allentown Morning Call of Dale's passing. I was his co-host for several months on his talk show on WGPA during the Clinton years. I've always been grateful for the chance he took on me and gave me. I've thought about Dale often and wish I could have heard better news after all these years. Please accept my sincere condolences.
    In Christ, Alan

    I knew Dale back in the 90's when I worked in advertising for the Express Times. He was always so pleasant, and I always enjoyed visiting with him. Even after I let the newspaper I would occasionally stop by the driving range at times to see how he was doing. While I was dating my husband Joe, during one of his trips from Texas to be Pa to see me, I took him to meet Dale. Dale and him enjoyed talking about golf and Dale "hooked" Joe up with a couple of players that weekend on some courses.

    To the friends and Family....you are all in my thougths and prayers...Dale truly was a sweet person.

    Dale and I played alot of golf together at Bethlehem Muni and Green Pond. He always had me in stiches laughing my way around the golf course. He would always call me early in the morning to play golf and it was very hard to say no because there always was a story behind his offer. Dale you'll be missed!!!!

    Dale was a delightful man to be around. He had a great sense of humor and intellengence about many subjects. I loved hearing him play with Bret Messer and Scott McIntire. He was a person that I was proud to call a friend. He will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to his family.
