I knew Dale first as a student in our psych and human service program at the College of St. Joseph. After graduation, he taught for us and also provided inpui into the development of our undergrad and graduate degree and certificate programs in alcohol and substance abuse. I knew him as a builder, poker player, clinician, and most importantly as a dedicated father and model human being for all who knew him. He served his family, his community, and his country with honor and will be long remembered by all who were fortunate enoiugh to know him. Thanks Dale.


Rest In Peace my friend....
