Obituary of Dale Oliver Paule
Dale Oliver Paule. A beloved father, friend, grandfather, and so much more, has passed away at the age of 85 on May 2, 2023. He died in West Hills, California with family by his side.
My father, Dale, was born in St. Louis, Missouri to Oliver Paule and Helen Lamb. He moved to San Fernando, where he was raised by his Grandmother, my great Aunt Vi and great Uncle Claude. He was an adventurous and free spirited young man. He attended San Fernando High School where he met some of his greatest friends. Dale co-founded a car club called The Igniters with a couple of his pals.
He enlisted in the Army in 1958 where he grew to become an airplane mechanic
In 1964, he was married to a woman by the name of Nikki Hendrickson. They would go on to have two daughters. Me, Victoria who was born in 1967 and Marni shortly thereafter in 1969. My dad’s favorite thing to do with us was to take us on long Sunday drives across the valley and watch old movies that were produced before my time. We would spend the day
together as a family. I remember when The Wizard of Oz was scheduled to come on television me and my sister were allowed to stay up late.
Speaking of movies, my father had a long career working for motion picture films beginning in the early 1980’s. He worked as a prop maker where he was promoted to becoming the vice president of Local 44. He was promoted once more to a Union Organizer of IATSE. He would always come home with a story to share from his day of work.
After his retirement, he picked up many hobbies. Some of these hobbies included reading, fly fishing, collecting antiques, silent films, thrift shopping, swing dancing, music, golfing, and most of all, writing. I cannot believe how many stories he wrote! He always had a story to write or a joke to tell. He was funny, whitty, charming, and always a gentleman. Not to mention his taste in fashion. He was always dressed to the nine with a hat to match and whenever I was to see him, I never knew which decade he was going to dress from. His License plate even spelled out hat squad.
He loved and cherished his friends and family more than anything. He believed that his friendships and relationships with his family were the most important things in the world.
He was survived by his daughters Victoria and Marni and his grandchildren Jesse, Amanda, Madison, Jack, and our beloved Hayden who we lost too soon.
