In 1970, he married Florine Marie Kirkpatrick and they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary this past March. Dale was a long-time resident of Gainesville, retiring after ten years from Webber Aircraft. He enjoyed fishing, wood-working and tinkering in his backyard shed.
He is survived by his wife Florine, three sons, Jerry Hoelscher of Wylie Texas, Travis Barter of Caldwell Texas, and Mike Barter of Levelland Texas and two grandchildren, along with a sister Marcia Mercer of Gainesville.
