  1. I first met Dale when my Dad worked at FS 103 back in the 60’s. I was about 15 or 16. Even then I remember that he made the best pies in the world. I joined the LAFD eight years later myself and made skipper in 1978. My first assignment was FS 96B while Dale was on the A shift. I was by far the youngest member there, and Dale paved my way with the old timers on all shifts. It helped that he was the PC and one heckuva fireman- and still baked the best pies. He used to bowl with my dad and Dale and his wife, Kay, were two of the nicest people I ever met. He was salty and definitely ‘old school’, but a fireman’s fireman, for sure. I hope he’s found his lane.
