Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Dale Wayne Licklider, with the checkered flag waving, crossed the finish line for the race of life on February 14, 2015. Dale ran an amazing race throughout his life as a beloved husband and father. Dale’s win came with an offer he could not refuse. This win comes with many perks, including a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time, and takes him to a grand place where he can race with the Winged Express. Music, laughter, and love are guaranteed.
Dale was loved for many reasons but mostly for making others laugh. The audience he leaves behind is his wife Kathy, son Cale, daughter-in-law Amber, daughter Katie, and beloved cat and companion Samson. Sister Sheila, brother-in-law Alvin Flatebo, nephew Dan, and niece Lisa.
We want to let you know that he was a great man and wish him a safe race in his new season. We will remember his smile, his laughter, his passion for music, and his love and dedication to his friends and family.
He was a wonderful man who had great stories, great taste in music, and always ready with a joke. Dale never let his illness hold him back and kept his independence (or stubbornness, depending on who you ask) until the very end.
Dale made a difference in the lives of many and asked that memorial contributions be made to Wayside Waifs or a charity of your choice. Honoring Dale’s request for no service, please take the time to do something that makes you laugh.
As promised these are for Dad:
