Condolence & Memory Journal

I met Dale at the Flying Circuits in New haven, we shared a passion for rc helicopters, although i was not very good at flying and continually would crash mine, Dale would always say come on out to the office, which was right around the corner from the flying field and was always so kind to help me fix my helicopter, i cant count the times i would call him and say...hi Dale its Gary....and before i could even finish my sentence he would say come on over! and he was always so kind to have me come to his office and fix my helicopter time and time again, he was a great pilot and knew helicopters inside and out. When he was finished fixing it he would always take me outside and we would test fly it, he would show me some really cool tricks, which i was never as good as he was at doing them, lol, but he would always make sure it flew perfect and steady for me, until the next day or two, then i would call him again....he was a super kind man! Id like to express my most sincere condolences to his family and to thank Dale for all the times he gave his time to help me get my bird back in the air.
