Christopher Frank Dale

Oct. 7, 1959 - April 17, 2020

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different

drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

Henry David Thoreau

from Orono High School where he played hockey, as well as trumpet in the concert band. A

Lake, MN. Chris loved his dogs and cats, rock bands (especially RUSH), his riding mower, his

back woods, Lake Superior, skiing at Lutsen, Swedish meatballs, reading James Lee Burke,

and solitude.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents and his brother, Jonathan. He is survived by his

parents, Michael and Marcia Dale, his beloved cousins, his aunt and uncle, John and Marilyn
