Dale was born on December 4, 1963 to Martin and Elaine (Easker) King in Milwaukee, WI. For four years, Dale was a member of the United States Navy and served on the U.S.S. Koelsch. He held multiple jobs throughout his life and brought a smile and positive attitude to work.  Dale married the love of his life, Kay Keith, on April 30, 2010. They were quite a pair. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and cooking. Dale also enjoyed spending time with his family and seeing his grandchildren. Most of all, he enjoyed eating the cakes that Kay baked.  At any family event or holiday, Dale always had his camera out, ready to take photos.  He was a very proud father, and an even prouder grandpa.  Dale is loved and will be deeply missed.
