Dale Reichle, 73, of Le Mars, passed away on Monday, April 8, 2019 at Accura Healthcare of Le Mars. Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, April 12, 2019 at All Saints Catholic Parish – St. James Church in Le Mars. Father Bruce Lawler will celebrate Mass. Burial will follow at Memorial Cemetery in Le Mars. Visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at St. James Church. There will be a rosary at 5:00 p.m. and a Scriptural Prayer Service at 7:00 p.m. There will also be one hour of visitation at the church prior to the Mass on Friday. Please wear your favorite sport’s attire as Dale was never one for suits and ties.

Dale Francis Reichle was born on October 27, 1945 in Granville, Iowa, the son of Harold and Marcella (Schnurr) Reichle. Dale’s parents moved to Minnesota in the early 60’s so Dale moved to Le Mars and lived with LeRoy and Vi Kellen. He graduated from Gehlen Catholic High School in 1963. Following graduation, Dale attended Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. After college he returned to Le Mars and started R & R Enterprises with Ron Roder. Together they built houses and worked on various construction projects.

Dale and Sharon Rasmussen were married on July 8, 1967 in Alton, Iowa. They made their home in Le Mars. In 1975, Dale started working with Wiltgen Construction. At the same time Dale began digging graves in 27 area cemeteries. Sharon passed away on June 25, 2000.

On October 27, 2001, Dale and Debra Weeks were married at St. James Catholic Church in Le Mars. Dale continued his work with Wiltgen Construction until 2003. He retired from cemetery work in April of 2014. Dale was a member of the Le Mars Eagles Club and enjoyed playing cards and shooting pool. He was also a lover of the outdoors. His favorite outdoor activities were fishing, hunting, boating and snowmobiling. At home he cared for his “furry friends” Maizey and Dakota. His favorite teams were the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Minnesota Vikings.

Grateful to have shared his life is his wife, Deb Reichle of Le Mars, IA; a son, John Reichle and his significant other, Melissa of Butler, MO; three sisters, Joyce (Darrell) Lancaster of Seney, IA, Betty (Lloyd) Holles of Lincoln, NE and Judy (Mark) Meis of Alton, IA; a brother, Bob (Linda) Reichle of Alton, IA; sisters-in-law, Paula Rasmussen of Norfolk, NE and Deanna (Tim) Jessen of Santee, NE; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Sharon; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Donna (Weeks) and Gary Smouse; his mother-in-law, Viola Rasmussen; a brother-in-law, Kenny Rasmussen; best friend, Jerry Treinen; and his best furry friends, Maizey and Dakota.
