Bringing Dale Home

On 20 June 2019 while driving on Highway 2, North East of Harper, Kansas, Dale struck a deer. After seeking refuge on the side of the road a passing motorist, avoiding a collision with the stranded vehicle, left the road and tragically struck Dale. He was treated by health care professionals on scene and in hospital, however passed away at 2:14am.

Dale was a successful, passionate photographer, loving partner and father to Karlie and Mia, and generous friend to all.

Dale leaves behind his beautiful partner Karlie and his perfect baby girl Mia who is just 10 months old. He was widely loved and will be a huge loss for many across the world both personally and professionally.

We will all miss his tongue-in-cheek humour, his passion for his work, the love he showed his family and the man he was for his friends and colleagues

We set up this page so those who loved him and will miss him can do him the greatest service of all - contribute towards his legacy, to support his family. All monies raised will go directly to Karlie and Mia. I know for this, he would be eternally grateful.
