Dale was born in Cameron, Montana on July 31, 1935 to Frank and Willa Dearing. Dale married his soul mate Myrna Moe on January 29th, 1954. Through the years they built their dream home in the mountains and raised their three wonderful children.
Dale held many jobs before retiring at the age of 55 after 33 years with the United States Post Office. Dale and Myrna loved travel and they traveled all over the world. They especially loved traveling to spend the winters down in Arizona camping out in the desert in their R.V. which they did every winter for 26 years. They lived a full life since retirement and developed many wonderful friendships with people from Montana to Arizona and many points in between. Dale was a quiet man who enjoyed tending their beautiful yard, feeding the wildlife and working in his shop carving wood sculptures, completing metal work and repairing anything that broke around the house.
