Dale was born on June 7, 1960, in Lakeview, MI, the son of Lloyd E. and Letha M. (Moore) Benkert.
Dale was described as being extremely kind; he would do anything for anyone, and once in his heart, you were always there. He was very supportive of his family, enjoying all the events his grandchildren participated in. He was known to be happy and always enjoyed a good laugh. Dale was very much an outdoorsman, and could either be found outside riding his tractor or cutting wood. He fixed many cars for friends and family (always free of charge), and enjoyed his current position working for Mid Michigan Auto Body Parts. He loved hunting, especially at his Mom’s in Barryton, and enjoyed being involved in Barryton Days, which was something he always looked forward to.

Dale was preceded in death by his father, Lloyd E. Benkert and his grandparents.
