He grew up in Holladay and graduated from Olympus High School. Dale attended the U of U and BYU majoring in Industrial Education. He could and would repair anything, whether we wanted him to or not. Dale served his country by joining the Army and was activated during the Berlin Crisis. He became a Mess Sergeant preparing meals for the officers. He met his future wife, Judy Gay Sjoblom, on a blind date at church. They were married July 2, 1965. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dale was an artisan in several mediums: arrowhead mosaics, sandstone carvings, and Silversmith jewelry. He has pieces in Jackson Hole, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Chicago. As well as a sandstone carving of Delicate Arch in the Utah Governor’s Mansion. Dale was a successful businessman owning Alta Schwinn Cyclery in Sandy along with his son, Aaron. Hunting and fishing were a big part of his life. He loved to Salmon fish in Idaho and in 2008, after living in Utah County for 43 years, he moved his family to Idaho to be closer to the rivers he loved. With his health failing, he and his family moved back to Utah in 2020. Dale was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in the High Priest Group Leadership, YSA Leadership, Primary Teacher, Scout Master, Webelos Sunday School Teacher and in the Sunday School Presidency.
