Today July 21,2020 I found out my dear friend Dale Thompson had passed away. I grew up with Dale ever since first grade. Dale and I were close all through the our school years. Lots of fun times hanging out around the dam and sawdust fields in back of Sharps garage. Dale and did lots of hunting up the tracks and Black Bridge area. I remember Dale wanted to go to college for Data management and I wished him the best of luck as I was leaving Ogdensburg for joining the Coast Guard. Since then I moved to New Jersey and now Florida. Dale will always be in my memories. Condolences to Dale's family. RIP Dale until we meet again my friend.

I truly enjoyed Dale and his sense of humor the entire time I knew him. My favorite memory is of him inviting me to Buster's for lunch on a Saturday and giving me specific directions on where to sit. Then explaining "the sisters" were taking him and couldn't know he was bringing a date. :) Such a great guy with many memories of my dad and other guys from his neighborhood growing up. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family
