Dale Rutschow passed away on June 15, 2018, after succumbing to a catastrophic motor neuron disease attributed to Lyme Disease.
He was a long-term employee of Digital Equipment Corp., Compaq and HP. A long distance runner, Dale also hiked, camped, hunted, fished and skied. When inside, he enjoyed playing Strategy & Tactics military games with friends across the nation
Dale lived by the Golden Rule, and will be remembered for his innate kindness, honesty, humor, and devotion to his family, friends and a menagerie of miniature schnauzers.
He is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart, Jennifer; daughter, Anne; son-in-law, Aaron; beloved grandson, Cannon; one sister, and two brothers.
A private celebration of life will be held in the near future.
A special thanks goes out to the wonderful staff at New Century Hospice and BrightStar Care.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Dale’s honor to the Grace Hospice Foundation at curohealthservices.com or lymedisease.org.
