I met Dale in 1994 when I joined the Cheektowaga Recycling Department He was a driver I was a laborer. Although most of the senior drivers were rotten and nasty to the new laborers Dale was a perfect mentor. He was one year older than me but well smarter beyond his years on how to be nice to people. He treated me great and treated all the guys great.. Even now when I go by his house on Harlem Rd (near the 33) I think of him and smile about the good times we shared together at work. I wish we could have more time together in our department but I moved on to other departments, but never forgot about what a great man he was. God bless Dale and his family!

Knowing Dale was knowing his smile and positive attitude. He and I were both members of Penfield Baptist Church when we were in high school, and I remember many youth group outings with Dale. He was a genuinely kind and amiable person. I'm so sorry for your loss.

- Sandy Smeltzer, SYRACUSE, NY

So sorry to hear of Dale’s passing he was a great friend through grade school and high school. I send my condolences to his family and my prayers too.
