I was deeply moved and very sad to hear of the passing of Dale Alt. Dale was always one of my best buddies since we first met playing golf at Yule Golf Club in 1992. He was a very good golfer and there was not a mean bone in his entire body. He never bragged about how good he was. Dale was a very modest person. I always looked forward to seeing him every time I went to Grandview to play golf. I feel for his entire family. He will be greatly missed.
