He was born in Roseland Nebraska and reared, along with his three sisters, Sharon, Patricia and Sandy by his grandparents, A.G. and Anna Bourg.

I married into the Dempewolf family 35 years ago, so suddenly I had a wife, Dianne, three new sisters-in-law, Linda, Pat, and Barb, and four new brothers-in-law, Dale, Dave, Dave, and Jack, along with several nieces and nephews. When Dianne and I were dating, Dale told me I would never find a better wife than Dianne, Dodie to many of you, and he was correct.

I will always be thankful to Dale for his encouragement and advice, or I could have missed the opportunity to be a member of the extended Dempewolf family.

We miss Dale greatly for his friendship, wisdom and generosity.

How sad to think that we are now in a world without Dale. Although I haven't seen or been in touch with Dale in many years, I will always treasure his kindness and generosity. A memory that still stands out for me is when I was "stuck" in Springfield on 9/11 and Dale and Linda kept me well fed and well-entertained during several days that I couldn't get home. Thank you Dale (and Linda) for making the world a better place. ken
