He was known for mowing the neighbor's lawn and shoveling their walk.

He had a strong work ethic. He started working in Shelly at French's in 1969. His first position with them was a laborer. He worked his way up to be a Master Mechanic. Everyone that knew Dale knew if you wanted it fixed see Dale. He was well known for saying, “if you're going to do something, do it right the first time.” Though the company had several buyouts during his career he stayed there and retired in 2009 from Basic American Foods.

When he was not working at the plant he was busy keeping up with his three rental homes.
