Dale served in many capacities with the fire department, including fire chief for 28 years. He loved serving his community through the fire department and Navarro County Firefighters Association. He received several certificates of attendance for his devotion. He had a love and interest for motorcycles and classic cars. He was the most devoted father to his daughter, Crystal. I was proud to call him my Daddy. He was preceded in death by his mother, Delorise Farmer; grandparents: H. L. & Stella Goodman, T.O. & Myrtle Farmer, and Elmer & Allie Belle Marr; great grandparents Mr. & Mrs. R. J. Carter; and numerous other beloved family members. Dale is survived by his father Jerry E.

He is also survived by the love of his life, Debbie (Almond) Seabolt, who he reconnected with in September of 2019 after a lifetime apart. She was his first and final love. Thank you to New Century Hospice and other medical professionals that helped Dale through his battle with cancer. We were all blessed to have Dale in our lives for the 65 years he was on this earth. He had a good soul, loving heart, and a great smile. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to Angus Volunteer Fire Department, or a volunteer fire department near you.
