Began career in retail management after graduating from college. Moved to sales position (building materials) in the late '80s. Started Earthen Vessels Ministries, Inc., following acoustic neuroma surgery in 1991. Earthen Vessels was a faith-based nonprofit: we collected durable medical equipment which we then donated to mission hospitals in developing countries. Our primary affiliation was with Wheels for the World, an outreach program of Joni and Friends. See their website for details: www.joniandfriends.org. Earthen Vessels became inactive in 2012. (I hung up the wheels, so to speak, after Marjie retired from teaching. We now concentrate on being the best grandparents we can be!) Antics--and photos to corroborate them--are regularly posted on Facebook.

Gary & Marilu,

Thank you for posting this information for us. 

I must have started (a dozen times!) to compose a comment responding to the news of Dale's passing, but I never could quite "pull the trigger" and hit the "Submit" button . . . never quite sure that I said it right--or appropriately.  Being a latecomer to Butler--arriving the last grading period of 9th grade--and not possessing the most outgoing personality--I often felt that I didn't quite fit in when it came to trying to join established groups of longtime friends.  It was never like that around Dale, though.  We met in Band our sophomore year--Marching Band, Stage Band, Symphonic Band . . . any band! Generally smiling, usually joking, but always someone  around whom a person--even a relative newcomer--would feel accepted and welcome to join in.  We spent a lot of time in the music wing, but I knew I'd "arrived" when Dale invited me to join his intramural basketball team, the "Schlitz for Lunch Bunch"--and subsequently, "The Nads." Any time I think of Dale . . . I smile.

I don't know if I can be there in Oct. for the Celebration of Life, but I'm sure I will spend time that day smiling.

God bless and continue to comfort you all!

Fred

Dear Ellen Feder Kime,
Having received notice that you have a “big day” coming up in a few days, please be advised that you should make every effort to also make said day as “happy” as humanly possible. After all, there’s no sense in wasting an opportunity to make a “big day” a “big ol’ happy day!”

Ellen,
I happened to be in Butler/Slippery Rock for a short visit over the weekend and picked up the paper at my Mom's house, and I want to express my condolences to you and all your family. God bless and comfort you all!
