I will miss Dale – he is an integral member of the multi-patterned fabric of our school, a part of who we are. Dale’s colourful personality and vibrant can-do attitude changed the day. One spark from Dale and any problem turned into a challenge to be solved (accompanied by various facial expressions and humour in the eyes). Many years ago he had a BirdLab license plate fashioned for us, which I treasure. Even more so now. My heart goes out to you, Wendy. We celebrate and miss Dale. He was a role model for positive values and cooperative culture in School of Biological Sciences. xxx Sonia Kleindorfer

  • Ms Wendy Hayward: Thank you Sonia. You reminded me of his expressions. My favorite was raised eyebrows eyes wide open as if surprised at all around him and alert to take in all he could!

I didn't know Dale all that well, having only spent a couple days out field with him, when he was helping me on my Honours project, but we got on well. You'd think spending nearly two full days driving up and down dirt roads collecting samples would get tiresome, but Dale and I just seemed to click. We talked about everything from american politics, to sci-fi movies and books, to telling the dirtiest jokes. I had a great time and it made the 2 days fly by. You will be missed Dale. - Robert
