Saying goodbye to Dale
A reception is planned for Saturday, Sept. 20, for the late Dale Owens, who passed away in a tragic boating accident while fishing at Blue Mesa.
Dale’s body was cremated in accordance with his wishes, and no formal services are planned. His wife Mallorie says the “family will greet and share memories with friends” from 2 to 4 p.m. at the family home, 2749 Abarr Drive. No memorial has been chosen for donations, but people are “free to donate to the charity of their choice” in his name.
“We are still trying to process what has happened and take care of the myriad details I now face,” Mallorie told club Vice President Lou Colton. “I will need a lot of time to process this. He was a wonderful person and the very best husband and partner I could have had.”
Dale was fishing with a friend at Blue Mesa on Sept. 3 when a sudden squall hit and swamped his boat.
As Mallorie noted, he was a wonderful person. And he’ll be missed.
