Born in St Clair, Michigan
Resided in Anchorage, Alaska


Dale was born on Christmas Day in St Clair, Michigan. He passed away on Aug. 15, at the age of 82, on his 57th wedding anniversary.
Affectionately known as MOLB (Mrs. Ogden’s Little Boy,) Dale grew up diving in the St. Clair River and playing goalie on his hockey team. After high school, he worked in a machine shop before joining the Merchant Marines, sailing the Great Lakes on the Verona. Soon after joining the Army in 1960, Dale was stationed in Korea, where he met his future wife Kae Sun. They married, had two children, and shared 57 years together. During his 28 years in the military, Dale worked in Ordinance and left the service as a SgtMajor. He enjoyed target shooting, with a particular interest in muzzleloading and the mountain man era. Dale was a hard-working, kind, fair, and generous man who was quick to crack a joke and always willing to lend a hand.
Dale was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn and Betty, and his Aunt Mary Jane. He is survived by his wife Kae Sun; his daughter and son-in-law Katharine and Jon; his daughter and former son-in-law Karol and Daniel; his grandchildren Brandy, Dustin, Ethan and Emily; his great-grandchildren Lyric and Harbor; and his brother and sister-in-law Gene and Linda.
Services will be determined at a later date.
