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.

Waking up this morning thinking about Dale it hit me how lucky we are to get up each morning. Yesterday we set up this GoFundMe page (endorsed by Karlie and DK Photography) to raise as much money as we could to help Karlie bring Dale home, pay for his funeral and ease her financial burden to allow her time to grieve. So far we have raised over $30,000 which is amazing! I am truly touched by how many people have reached out and have contributed. To those of you who have supported this campaign so far I'd like to pass on my sincere thanks. I spoke with Karlie yesterday and she is overwhelmed by the generosity.

However, if possible, I'd like to do more for Karlie. I would please ask, if you can, to share this campaign to tell as many people as possible. Tell Dale's story and share why we are doing this. Thousands of people across the world have followed him and I'm sure would love to give back. Every donation counts and eases a huge financial burden on a young family.

Thank you again for your support. I will ensure Karlie gets to read every beautiful comment left by you.
