Kay, Eric, Sam, boys, and family, Dale was such a sweet man and I treasure the time we were kind of neighbors and he took my boys under his wing until Eric got two of them with him. Bobby always wanted Mr. Dale to cut his hair and wouldn't let anyone else do it. I know a big piece of your rock has left but what an angel you now have to watch over you. May you find comfort in God' s arms. We love your family and you are all in our thought and prayers. Mike and Lisa Mahler, Bobby Kirkendoll, Ronnie Kirkendoll and Teddy Kirkendoll

We love y’all very much, and wish we could be there for the family. Y’all will be in our prayers.❤️
I am so sorry to hear of Dale's passing and hope that the sorrow felt by his loved ones is soon replaced with comfort. It is hoped that the memories made with Dale brighten the days ahead and bring a smile. Dale and I visited many hours at "the shop" while he cut and clipped away at the 'most challenging head of hair he ever did see'. It brings a smile when I think of the answers he gave to questions I would ask him. He was a very special person and will be missed, not forgotten.
Sorry for your loss, Dale was a great person and will be missed.
Our blessings and love to the Shull family. Mr. Dale was a wonderful man with a big heart and a warming smile. He will be missed. Tania & StevenFairfield bay animal control
