Dale was born August 30, 1969, in Albany, GA to Ronald and Janice (Groter) Davis. He married Cathy (Toms) in York, on January 8, 1993. First and foremost, they were the best of friends.
A graduate of Venice High School in Venice, FL, Dale graduated from Hastings College in 1993. He worked for NTV Network for a number of years as a director and commercial producer. He eventually joined Hastings Public Schools as a building custodian and spent 11 years at Lincoln Elementary School. Dale loved what he did and his interactions with his students at Lincoln were a big part of his happiness in life. Most recently, he managed the custodial department at CCC in Hastings. He was employed there at the time of his death.
Dale’s children were his pride and joy. Following his son’s sporting events and coaching his teams was so important to him as his dad. Likewise, as his daughter got more involved in music and theatre, there was no one more proud than he was to see her perform and create. He shared a love of history, Star Wars and Marvel movies with his kids.
He is survived by his wife, Cathy; son, Wyatt and daughter-in-law, Ryanna of Lincoln; daughter, Annie of Hastings; father, Ron; brother, Clint both of Aurora, CO; Aunts, Renee (Ron) Kaefer of Venice, FL, Cristie (Paul) Bennett of Naples, FL, and Karen Uhlman of Harrodsburg, Kentucky; Uncles, Robert Groter of Missouri and Bob (Lorraine) Davis of Pittsburg, PA; sisters-in-law, Vicki (Mick) Northrop, Cindi (Steve) Nickel of York, and Kristi (Marc) Felix of Lincoln; brother-in-law, Tommy (Dee)Toms of Hastings; 12 nieces and nephews; 10 great-nieces and nephews; and several cousins.
He was preceded in death by his mom, Janice, and grandparents.
