  • Ron & Sally Swanson Dale was very special & will be missed by lots of people. Loved his sense of humor, soft spoken, kind & gentle man. Our friendship started 63 years ago as Ron joined the JC’s & I the JC-ettes. Ron so enjoyed the hunting trips to Mich., perhaps not too many deer were had but they surely shared lots of stories, laughs & even good food! Our love & prayers go out to Dale’s beautiful family, our dear friend Nancy.
