  1. My heartfelt condolences to the Daugherty family. I’m sorry I only now fired up the old Google machine and tried to track Dale down. We were college room mates for three years and I count Dale as one of my most cherished friends ever. We shared a lot of good times. He used to share his Furry Freak Brothers comics with me and from them I’ll finish with “Keep on Truckin” my friend.

  2. So very sorry to hear about Dale. I won’t forget growing up next door and the great impression his positive attitude, smile, and enthusiasm had on me. My condolences.
