  1. Gwen and Family,

    I thought the world of Dale. While we rarely saw each other after our kids aged out of Adventure Guides, I always think fondly of him when looking back on those times.

    I still remember our first “camp out” when none of us was smart enough to think to bring chairs and we spent 2 very long evenings trying to keep our backs and legs from cramping up while sitting around the fire for which we also did not bring enough wood. Needless to say future camp outs were much more comfortable.

    Dale was always a pleasure to be around. I remember that he was always interested in me and what was going on in my life. He really cared about others.

    I wish all of you the best as you mourn his loss. My prayer is that your memories are filled with the good times you had together.

    All my best to all of you.

    Lance Robnett
