Dale’s two passions in life influenced his two different career paths. He loved to cook and owned Michael’s Deli, then after becoming a Registered Nurse he worked for 22 years at Capital Region Medical Center. After leaving CRMC he, once again, opened his own restaurant, Taco Depot, with his mother.
He was a member of Community Christian Church and enjoyed helping others by going on many mission trips through the church.
Dale was a caretaker at heart and loved helping people in any way he could whether it was nursing, going on mission trips or cooking at gatherings of his family and friends.
