Dale Edward Meyer was born Nov. 21, 1944, a son of Edward and Melvina (Gehlsen) Meyer.

He died Monday, June 24, at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, Neb.

Dale was born in Carroll, Iowa. He received his education in Ar-We-Va Community Schools graduating with the Class of 1962. After high school Dale worked for area farmers for a couple of years and then went to work for Farmland Foods where he remained for 40 years until retiring in 2006. Dale married Lois Beermann on June 10, 1986, in Colorado Springs, Colo.

In his early days Dale liked riding motorcycles and would go to Vancouver to board the ferry to California and then take a road trip on his bike back home. To say the least he was an outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing trips to Minnesota, Canada and a cabin at Okoboji to relax. He loved anything to do with antique tractors from restoring and collecting 19 of them, to driving them in tractor shows, participating in tractor rides throughout the countryside, or old-thrasher conventions in Iowa and Minnesota. Dale was a member of the Green Ridge Association. Dale was a member of the Five-Mile House and the Schuetzen Verein Club near Westside. His favorite music was country western, and he and Lois enjoyed polka dances.

Survivors include his wife, Lois; one son, Chad and his fiancé, Amy; two daughters: Stacy and her husband, Matt; and Trish and her husband, Michael; one granddaughter, Grace; other relatives and friends.

Dale was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Gene.
