I just got the news from his wife's [Kelly] daughter.

It seems that it was a blood infection as cause of death.

Dale was a husband, father, Marine Corp Veteran [Vietnam], my friend and SC member.

He genuinely cared about people. When I dropped out of our group while leaving Fontana on our last Dragon run. Dale and Kelly pulled in behind Gayle and I just to check that we were OK. He explained that as a Marine ..." we don't leave anyone behind."

I am honoured to have had such a friend.

Rest in peace

If it is Tecaholic2 then his last post was about a Corvair.

Sad. The board has been around for about 12 years now in different iterations and only a handful of folks have left the earthly plane that we know of. Not too bad unless you are one of them.

Condolences to his family.

Very sorry hear of his passing. He sounded like one of the guys who was really dedicated, and seriously out and about in his MR2.

R.I.P.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Dale in person and It wasn't necessary as I considered him a good friend with many of the exchanges I have had on the board and though PM.
I'm sadden for his families loss and our loss of a great member.

Dale if you are out there my spark plug challenge still stands. RIP good friend. :(

As a n00b here, I never met the man, only read some of his posts. Based on that alone, his spirit and heart came through. I'll miss him. Sympathies to friends -I'm sure there were many- and family.

How sad. He was a long-time member of the board. Fairly active and always game for a good convo. Resquiat in pace.

Thank you for telling us, Duska.
I only met him a few months ago at the dragon, but I learned a lot from his posts here (and will probably continue to do so). I'm glad that he got to make that trip, too bad that he won't get to make any more.
My thoughts go out to his family.
