    Dale’s humor, giggles, and work ethic as a co-worker will be forever in my memory. He will also be remembered for his extremely short backswing in golf. I was blessed to work closely with Dale. I’m sure he is smiling in Heaven. Matt 5:4.

    I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful and loving father-in-law in Dale Birk. I will never forget the time he took me to his spin class at the YMCA. He was 70 or so and incredibly fit and I was quite a bit younger and out of breath by the end of the class. Our daughters called him the silly grandpa. He would get down on the floor and play with them whten they were little. And I especially remember our trip to the Clark County fair. He was oh so devoted to family and always knew how to make us smile. He will be missed and never forgotten.
