Dec. 15, 1940 - June 11, 2012
Dale Moyer of Bend passed away June 11, 2012, in Bend, surrounded by his wife and family.
Dale was born to Sam and Geneva Moyer December 15, 1940, in Gooding, Idaho. His family moved to Powell Butte in 1955. He graduated from Redmond High School in 1959, and on September 9, 1962, he married Pat Hollenbeck, and together they raised three children.
Dale worked for Country Fresh Dairy in Redmond for 13 years, then was a route salesman for Franz Bakery until he retired in 1994. He then increased his herd of cattle and became a full time farmer, a life he loved. Dale was a man of great integrity, a hard worker and he never met a stranger.
He enjoyed camping, elk hunting, and working with Pat, as best friends, farming and gardening. He liked dandelions because they announced spring was here and it was time to plant.
Dale is survived by his wife, Pat; children, Steve (Lylah) of Redmond, Julie of Newberg, Scott (Jennifer) of Beavercreek; three grandchildren, Steven, Serena, and Korey; and five brothers, Gene, Ken, David, John and Jerry.
He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, and his beloved Border Collie, Candy.
A celebration of Dales life was held Friday, June 15, 2012, at 1:30 p.m., at The Redmond Grange Hall, 707 SW Kalama Ave. in Redmond.
