Dale was preceded in death by his parents; two daughters, Vicki Cramlett and Karla Kay Cramlett; one brother, Joseph Cramlett; and one sister, Sandra (Carroll) Bowen.

Dale had a large family. He loved music and played in local bands; even recording his own short album in 1973. Dale was a strong-willed, God-fearing individual with a caring, gentle and loving side. He also had a healthy disrespect for authority and rules which contributed to his interesting stories.
