    I am so sorry to hear about Roy Dale. He will be missed by many. I am blessed to have known him. He always had a smile on his face and the lover of life. He loved his family and it showed every time I ever saw him. He was a huge joker and loved to laugh. Thats what I remember and I am so sorry I haven't been able to be around the past several years. Just know I love you all deeply and very sadden for y'alls loss. God bless everyone and my Roy Dale rest in the arms of God peacefully for eternity

    So many fun memories of Roy Dale. Somehow I can’t think of Roy Dale without thinking of my Daddy (Preston), Aunt Martha and Uncle Leon. My Daddy teasing him about being “momma’s baby boy” and the grin on his face. Love you Roy Dale! ♥️

    I have many fond memories of Roy Dale from school and football. We were paired up a lot of the time during practice , and even though we tried to not overdo it on tackling drills (just hard enough that Coach Henschel wouldn't make us do it over and over again) when Roy Dale landed on you, it wasn't something you forgot easily. He always had a smile on his face and a laugh in his heart. My sincerest condolences and prayers to his family.
