Cecil E. 'Buck' Dale Jr.
June 8, 1943 - September 25, 2016
Cecil E. "Buck" Dale Jr. passed away peacefully September 25, 2016, surrounded by his wife, father, sons, and sister. Buck was born June 8, 1943 in Natchitoches, La. to Cecil E. Sr. and Doris R. Dale.
Buck moved to the Rogue Valley in 1978 and ran Dale Electric until he wanted an adventure and they moved to Alaska in 1995. Buck continued to work as an oil field electrician in Russia, Alaska, and many other states until retirement in 2006. He loved to travel and spent many happy trips with Zora in their R.V., often meeting with family and friends all over the U.S.
Everybody who knew Buck loved him - family, friends, and co-workers. Buck was the rock you could always depend on. He saw what needed to be done and he did it.
Even though we will miss him terribly, we know he is no longer in pain.
Buck is survived by his loving wife, Zora and had just celebrated their 43rd anniversary September 15, 2016; their three sons, Rodney (Paula), Raymond, and Cecil III (Jessi); his sister, Paulette Trempe; his father; seven grandchildren; one great-grandson; and mother-in-law, Mary Lee Padgett. His mother, Doris preceded him in death in 1997.
Thank you Buck for sharing your time on Earth with us. Rest in Peace - you have earned it
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, October 1, 2016 at Perl Funeral Home, 2100 Siskiyou Blvd, Medford, Ore.
