They had five children together and relocated to the sunny San Jose bay area to work for Control Data as a draftsman designer. He then went into business as a builder and developed a love for property and real estate. He enjoyed breeding his boxers, hunting for the next piece of property to invest in, watching the warriors, Sharks and 49ers, and wearing his cowboy hat and snake skin boots. Dale was a smart, honorable and stubborn man, who always made sure to provide for his family. Dale and Jacquelyn were married for 61 years.
