Dale was an ambassador to the Greenville News and Piedmont for all of the reporters when we began work there. If we needed to know anything about anyone in Greenville, Dale was our go-to encyclopedia. He had more information and background tidbits than the library. I'm so sorry to learn of his death, but know that Greenville and its media and arts communities are richer for having known Dale!

Dale, you were a great colleague and friend as well as the all-knowing fount of Greenville knowledge. You always came through when any of us at the Greenville News needed to know that little tidbit of history about the city or a source. You will be missed by your family and friends. Love you, Jenny
