Roy Dale was one of the nicest men I’ve ever known. He was also the son of one of my favorite human beings. His smile was ever present and he was liked by everyone he came in contact with. He was an “old soul” even in his younger years with a very solid moral compass. I’m very sorry his mother, wife, son, grand kids and siblings (my old buddy Teddy) as he was taken from them far too early. May you all continue to spread his love. RIP old friend.
