Condolences

Teddy (Ted) Huculak:
Dear Rob,
Learning of your Dad's departure has left me speachless and a an empty space on my life.
Dad and I spent many years working at AGT in Rocky Mountain House..and always our helicopter flips into the mountains for work included the unexpected. He was the telephone guy and I was the radio guy
Your Dad was a very very hard working man whose entire job was mostly out of the compartments of his Line and Station Service Truck enduring the bitter bitter cold and hot hot days that Rocky has to offer. There was never a day that Dale did not greet me with a "Good Morning Teddy Boy"..always including a huge smile..and a few pulls on his pipe !!!! We spent a lot ton of family and work time. Your Mom worked in my wife's store. Together we also followed you hockey career. Life and time pulled us into different directions but always our friendship remained.
Rob remember Dad with a smile knowing that was Dale's way.

Dear Michelle, Perry and Ron,

We were so sorry to hear of Dale’s death. On our return from visiting our son and his family in Revelstoke, we read Michelle’s email---thank you for notifying us. Our condolences to Dale’s family and to each of your families.

Although life and the passage of time took us in opposite directions, with few opportunities to visit, I have very special memories of fun times with Dale in years gone by. eg We must have seen every Roy Rogers/Gene Autry movie ever made.

Love, Ken and Carolyn

p.s. A donation in Dale’s memory will be made to the Salvation Army.
Stew Stephanson :
It's with sadness I read about the passing of Dale. For many years there was a core group of utility company workers in Rocky area ( phone, electric and gas ) that crossed paths on almost daily bases. We would coffee together at times, or sit at the same lunch counter when working out of town. Dale at AGT was one of the group, myself at NUL gas was another. Over many years I enjoyed a quiet friendship with him, always a ready smile, and gentle nature I appreciated. In our retirement years, on occasion our path would cross and we would get up to speed on our lives. Yes, I did know he had a "special " friend in later years that brought him happy times and a reason to enjoy life. My sympathy to Dales family and freinds.
Stew
