WAUKESHA

Dale Gary Deiter

Jan. 13, 1946 - Jan. 14, 2009

Dale Gary Deiter of Waukesha found peace Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2009, at age 63. He was born Jan. 13, 1946, in Escanaba, Mich.

Dale’s final battle was with cancer, which he fought like a true champion until the very end. Dale was and is an inspiration to all that truly knew him. Dale achieved everything he set out to do and laughed at life’s road blocks that would bring most men to their knees. He was also one of the best culinary masters around. Some of his culinary creations were nothing less than master pieces. Many taste buds will truly miss his cooking skills. Dale never said no to hard work. He could work days on end with no sleep and then get home and create a meal that a top chef would praise.

Dale was a man with an iron will. He fought like a wolverine for a lot of his life. He battled with a kidney removal, tumors, blood poisoning and a broken back, to name a few. And he always came out smiling.

"God is our savior, our creator. He blessed us all with the gift of life and eternity. He wiped away all our tears when we were in sorrow. And his ideas of life are not meant to borrow."

Dale was preceded in death by his beloved son, Furney.

He was the loving father of Chet (Tammy), Heather (Terry), Kimberly, Tabitha and Diane (Bob). He is also loving survived by grandchildren; great-grandchildren; other relatives; his ex-wife, Carol; special friend, Louie; and many friends.

Dale will be deeply missed and never forgotten. Dale’s loved ones would like to thank all of the wonderful, caring people that worked so hard to give him all the comfort and love during this difficult time. All of you are truly appreciated. God bless you.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the 12 p.m. service Saturday, Jan. 17 at Church and Chapel Funeral Home, 380 Bluemound Road, Waukesha. Private burial will be at Prairie Home Cemetery.
