Milton C. James Dale - 03/06/2006
Died peacefully on March 5, 2006. Beloved father of Ann (William Voller), James (Shelley Smith-Dale), Elaine, and Adrienne (Michael Thomson). Special grandfather of Daniel James Frazer (predeceased), Catherine Dale, grandmother of Jaime Shanara and Jordan Dale; and Scott and Leah Thomson. Cherished brother of Elaine, Helen and Ashton. Dear friend of Danny Duhamel, and the boys of Brook Lake Hunting Camp. In 1945, Flight Officer Dale was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for completing 38 sorties, including some of the deepest penetrations made into enemy territory. Several sorties involved a flight of nine to ten hours during which his qualities of endurance and tenacity were manifest to his crew, to whom his conduct was a continuous source of inspiration. He displayed a complete disregard for his own personal safety and a high degree of skill. His superb airmanship continued into civilian life with the Ministry of Transportation, first as Civil Aviation Inspector, applying his skills towards efforts to introduce aviation safety standards into Northern Canada, and later as Chief Flight Training Officer, training a new generation of pilots. He finished off his career as a VIP pilot with MOT.
