Dale was a graduate of Beall High School class of 1956 and went on to Frostburg State Teachers College where he graduated in 1960. He taught junior high math at Prince Georges County Schools and obtained his master’s degree in his off time at George Washington University. After 30 years of teaching in the education system he retired as a Pupil Personal Worker where he helped at risk youth. Dale became an antique collector and an avid car enthusiast. His pride was finding parts to a Ford Model A on an old farm and building it back to its originality, and the love of his life was his new Dodge Challenger SRT. He attended the Hershey car show for many years and enjoyed antique cars. Dale was also an avid fisherman and would always lend a helping hand to anyone. He enjoyed his home in Frostburg and loved to garden when he could.
