Dale was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin to Irving King and Doris (Jensen) King.

Dale’s variety of skill landed him jobs from building sail boats on both the West and East coasts, to building busses in Great Bend, Indiana and pickup truck beds in Kosciusko, Mississippi.

His extensive skills in the fiberglass industry, creating and building figures and creatures, put his works on display at Disney Land and Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

His Contagious laugh and constant wit just drew people to him wherever he was. He amassed dozens of friends across the nation and kept in touch with them all.  He was just that kind of person, everyone loved him.

With Dale’s extreme love of motorcycles, Dale was in the motorcycle parts and accessory business for over 10 years.  He worked for Home Depot and worked for the City of Santa Clarita, CA for numerous years until he retired and moved to Frazier Park, Ca.  While in Frazier Park, Dale purchased property and built his dream home and landscaped and added structures to the home to suit Dales love of the outdoors. Dale continued working as a fabricator, doing mock-up designs for a company that did work for BMW.

Dale recently moved back to the Kansas City area to be close to his mother and family.  Dale lived with his brother Doug and the two of them had planned to purchase their dream lake house at the Lake of the Ozarks. Dale also had a love for boating and that love would have been extended to that home.

Dale was preceded in death by his father, Irving King.   He is survived by his mother:  Doris King; two brothers:  Dennis King (Carol) and Doug King.   Many other relatives and friends.

Dale had many sayings he told people Like:

“ It's All Good”

“Remember Your ABC’s (Always Be Cool)

"Get That Thing"

And as he said and experienced “No One Gets Out of Here Alive”
