Whether or not we were ready, heaven needed this gruff angel. Dale W. Berndt, age 75, passed away unexpectedly on April 30, 2020 at his home. Beloved husband of Elaine Berndt for 48 years. Dear father of Shelly (Mark) Edwards and Sean (Briana) Berndt. Exceptionally proud grandfather of Kade and Jase Edwards and Carter Berndt. Survived by other relatives and friends too numerous to list.
Dale proudly served his country in the US Army from 1965-1967. He will be remembered for his dry sense of humor, his willingness to drop anything to help anyone, his love for the outdoors, and his unique ability to provide advice or opinions regardless of the asking. Let’s not forget his coffee cup and the famous t-shirt “In Dog Years, I’m Dead” which mom had to buy in multiples because he wore them out.
Dale cherished most the time he spent with his family, especially his 3 grandsons. They will miss his hugs and watching his constant bantering with family and friends. Rest assured, your spirit, stubbornness, and your huge heart will live on through them. Rest in peace until we see you again…
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Sharing of happy memories always welcomed and embraced.
