Dale's life:

Always  a charger, Dale, known to friends and family as "Buzz,"  started an excavation business while still attending Lake Forest College, where he graduated in 1963.  He expanded his operations into construction and real estate development, becoming an extremely successful member of the Illinois business community.  But there was still time for the fun side of life, and Dale, a jazz music fan, sponsored several jazz festivals.  Knowing his love for cars, classmates will not be surprised to hear that "Buzz" pursued drag racing as a hobby, with his brother as a partner.
