I am so sad hearing of Dale's passing. It has been at least 40 years since we last visited. Then, at Alcova, some of my best memories are of those days. The things we enjoyed, Dale taught me a lot about cattle and ranching in general. Some of the predicaments we got into. I know he will be missed by all that knew him. The Lord has taken home a good man.

Sorry to hear about cousin Dale's passing. We used to have fun fishing together when we were younger at the ranch in TenSleep. Many memories of this young man.

I am not much of a hero worshiper, but when I was in Junior High School and Dale was in High School, I would go watch high school basketball practice just to watch Dale play. I always wanted to try to be as good as he was. He had such a fantastic junior season in basketball and then hurt his shoulder in the fall of his senior year playing football. Shooting only with his left hand he was still the leading scorer. And he was always so composed on the court. A cool customer kind of leader. May I offer my condolences to Dale's family and friends. I will miss him all the way from my home in Utah.

A truly special man has finished his earthly life. What a wonderful, loving, pleasant individual he was. He always had a smile on his face and a big hug when you saw him. I have fond memories of Dale that I will always remember. My condolences to all the family and my prayers are for your strength and peace at this hard time of our earthly life.

Every time I saw Dale, he was smiling. I was very happy when so many of the Lyman clan made it to Sienna's birthday at the Tongue River Reservoir this past June. That evening, Judy, Sienna, Sienna's husband and my son Kevin, and my husband David, all decided to do one last excursion in the fishing boat. That left me back at camp with Dale. I was a little worried because Dale was not a real talker, but I knew Dale and Judy were anxious to get back home so they wouldn't be out long. As luck would have it, the boat had other ideas and it took a couple of hours to get it to dock. I ended up having a most enjoyable time with Dale; I discovered there didn't have to be a lot of talking to fill up the time. With Dale, silences were comfortable, and when he did talk, his dry sense of humor made me laugh out loud.

I am blessed that my son married into this beautiful, loving family.

To this dear family we send deepest condolences. After having known Dale for many years, I could tell stories galore. Like about the time he spent countless hours rescuing stranded cows in mid winter at Tensleep Preserve. The cows did not belong to the Lymans, but as everyone knows about Dale, he was a man always ready to lend a hand to those in need.

I met Dale long ago on the day I reported for duty to manage Tensleep Preserve. I was dropping a trailer off halfway up the county road to go get a more heavy duty truck to pull it the rest of the way up the mud and snow that March. He sat there making sure I didn't get stuck. That was my welcome and he was the only person I saw that whole week. He later counseled me on local need-to-know items, like not worrying too much about people's opinions at first and just showing them who we are. He told me if people teased me about eating pine cones and such, it was because they liked me.

I am guilty of never even considering Mr. Lyman not being a part of life in Washakie County. He was an institution and part of the fabric. I know Dale lives on in the smiles of his grandchildren.
