Growing up in rural Sanborn, Dale attended Sanborn Public School and was a graduate of the 1960 class.  In 1962 he was joined in matrimony with the love of his life Dorene Wichman, and together they farmed and raised their three children: Dawn, Daniel, and Darcy in rural Sanborn, where he was a member of the Sanborn JC’s and the local Golf Club.
