We were next door neighbors to Dale and Betty Sue and loved them like family. Dale was always a pleasure to be around with his witty way with words. He was one of the most knowledgeable men we’ve ever met. He’ll live in our memories as one of the most accomplished people we’ve known. With great respect and homage, Dave Vaughn and Judy Stewart
