Dale was a friend and he was one of my regular customers at Lasting Impressions Catering Services. I remember him introducing us to his family. They supported the business because of him. You transitioned on my birthday and you will NEVER be forgotten. I love you my friend. Continue to sleep until we meet again...

I am so sorry to hear about Dale. I have worked with Dale at the City for years. He was one of the hardest working employees in Refuse and was always willing to stay late and work on Saturday if needed. His trash customers always expressed appreciation for his customer service. Dale will be missed by our whole Public Works and Refuse team. Rest in peace, Dale

So sorry to hear this sad news! We knew the Morris family from years ago when we were all growing up on Walnut Street. I ran into Dale one day at the City Credit Union awhile back in 2019 and enjoyed "catching up" with him. Thinking of all the family.
