Their leadership and service to the children, families, hungry & homeless at Lafayette Urban Ministry as well as to our entire community will not soon be forgotten.

Joe Micon, LUM executive director, shared that

“Dale lovingly built all the ‘cubbies’ used by the children in the LUM After School and 5th Quarter Programs. Dale and Joe were close friends spending many years together delivery bed sheets to the LUM shelter and food to the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry. Surely, if there is a pick-up truck in Heaven, Joe and Dale are back together, hard at work!”
