Not at all as he lived, Homer D. Dale passed away quietly in his sleep on May 23, 2021, in Sparta, Tennessee.

Homer was born to Harold and Peggy Dale in Dayton, Ohio, on January 10, 1951. If asked to describe Homer, many long time friends would say he was a bad boy but a good man. He didn’t waste words but if he had something to say, it was worth hearing. You had only to step into his shop to understand the life of Homer Dale. There you would find evidence of the multitude of skills and talents he had practiced and developed throughout his life. His love of designing, creating, studying - all were obvious by the collection of artifacts, tools, and inventions found in his shop.

His love of music played a significant role in his life. The beginning of a 55 year journey with his wife, Jeanne, began in the music room at Dixie High School. They spent most of their years singing and playing music together. There wasn’t an instrument he picked up that he couldn’t play. A more beautiful voice than his would be difficult to find.

His spiritual nourishment came from the woods, fields, streams, rivers, mountains - anywhere God’s creation was evident. Homer was a lover of nature and appreciated it was there he could find God.

Homer will be greatly missed by those who survive him: His wife Jeanne, sons and daughters-in-law, Heath and Kelly Dale, Josh and Harmony Dale, grandchildren: Hayden Dale, Landen Dale, Riley Dale, Noah Dale, Nicholas Dale, Leeland Dale, Savannah Dale and many special friends and relatives.
