    Sad to hear of Dale's passing. Having him as a customer, and dealing with him every day, he also became a friend. He was a great man, and I'm glad I had the pleasure of knowing him. R.I.P.

    Mr. Dale was a sweet man and will be missed by many. I had the honor of him roofing both of my homes, he was the best in the business. You could tell he really cared for people. Praying for comfort for all his family during this difficult time.

    Wendy and I are so sorry to hear about your dad. Dale was always a man of his word and a man I could trust. If he told me something, it was the truth. I think the Lord for the time that he allowed Dale and I to be friends. He will be missed not only by his family and love ones but by anyone that their paths had crossed. I know Dale is in heaven and I pray for your family so that you also may have some comfort. We love you all.... Jeff and Wendy Ludwig
