My long-time buddy Dale, an avid, orange-bleeding Tiger since his early youth has passed away at the young age of 53. I first met Dale when he was 11 or 12 and he used to hang out at our band practice room and he would help us set up gear, etc He was still in elementary school after we had all graduated... He became quite a musician himself.

His daughters are Clemson Graduates, with the oldest daughter being part of the student trainers for the football teams from 2016-2018! I'm not sure if his two sons went to Clemson or not but I do know they did have the opportunity to do so because their dad lived and breathed Clemson Tigers from a young age.

He'll be missed by so many, RIP my friend!

Pics,

1. He took this pic of his Daughter after the Championship in 2018

2. This is a photo of His oldest daughter, Dale, his dad (still living), one of his sons, and his youngest daughter.

Praying for his family and friends, thanks for honoring him by posting about him here.

We never know when our time is up so we need to be ready with no unfinished business.

53 is way to young!

Lost my life long best friend in 2005, he was 37.

I'm sorry for your loss. 53 is way to young to be taken but it sounds like he was a good man. He is with the LORD!

Prayers for the family. My daughter was the Tiger Cub mascot during the 2014-2016 seasons so she probably knows his daughter. I will let her know.

May God Bless and hold all during this tough time - that is way too young to go. I’m sure he’ll be missed, but hope all who knew and loved him will keep him living on through their remembrance's.

I'm curious to know if he had an account here at TNET... While the Tigers came up often during conversations, I never talked to him about any message boards. It seems quite likely that he would have.
