Grunseth, Dale (1929? - 2019?)
Dale Grunseth passed away at age 90, in Albuquerque, N.M.
Dale was born in Ingram, and lived there until joining the Navy after high school. He then trained as a butcher.
During the Korean War, Dale served in the Air Force and learned electronics. Eventually he lived in Minnesota, where he met his wife, Fae (Cater). Due to his wife’s ill health, they moved to the Southwest, ultimately making their home in Tucson, Ariz., where they lived for 40-plus years. Dale’s unflagging devotion to his wife’s care prevented him from spending much time with the Grunseth side of the family.
Dale worked for the Federal Aviation Administration for 30 years. He was active in several Lutheran churches. During retirement, Dale volunteered for suicide prevention organizations.
He had many interests and hobbies, including fishing, target shooting, ham radio, card playing, jigsaw puzzles, lip reading, drawing, welding, furniture making, concrete work, and working with wood, metal, silver, gourds, stained glass and leather.
Dale is survived by his son and daughter, their spouses, three grandchildren, a great-grandson, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
There will be a service for family in the White Mountains of Arizona, where he taught his children and grandchildren to camp.
There will be a Celebration of Life in Ingram during Ingram Days, Aug. 2-4.
