Dale married Dorothy Louise Lewis, his childhood sweetheart on January 25, 1947. This union brought three children, five grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Dale spent his early years in the entertainment business and the central part of his life, working with his father and his uncle in the heavy construction machinery business. Dale and Dorothy were members of the DAC Country Club, as well as many charity organizations, where Dale helped raise funds for many children's charities. "I had a great life and enjoyed every minute of it, I would not change a thing, even if I could do it all over" comments Dale.
Dale was associated with the Western Film Festivels and acted in westerns with Gene Autry and several other known actors of the silver screen. As the western movies declined, he went from playing the Cowboy to acting on other shows such as Route 66, Dallas, and Walker, Texas Ranger.
