He was born the 5th of 7 children on August 5, 1936, in Muskegon, MI to parents Cleo and Margaret (St. Armour) Casler.
Dale graduated from Muskegon Heights High School in 1956.
Dale proudly served in the United States Military from 1955-1959. He served the Navy for a short time before transferring to the Army. While in the Navy he said he was disappointed because he spent all that time on a ship and never got a fish! In the Army he explored Alaska, Washington, and White Sands New Mexico. Dale always spoke very fondly of his service time.
He moved to Minnesota in 1967. In 1995 Dale met the love of his life and soul mate Aurilla Storm. She could cook and he loved to eat. They enjoyed spending time finding treasures at flea markets and garage sales. Together they traveled the US and enjoyed time with family.
He worked hard and retired from Plastech in 1997, after 18 years. Dale was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2007. He became Temple worthy in 2008.
With never ending patients and love he passed his knowledge and passions for hunting, fishing, cribbage, and cards to his children and grandchildren.
Dale loved spending quality time with his family and friends. He was an amazing man who showed kindness to everyone. Dale was always there to help anytime it was needed. His great sense of humor and loving jokes always brought a smile. Dale leaves behind a beautiful list of memories for everyone who knew him. He will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.
