Dale R. Herwig was welcomed into Heaven on December 20, 2021.
Dale was born on December 17, 1932 in Quemahoning, Pennsylvania. He resided on his family’s farm until 1946 when he moved to Elyria, Ohio.
Dale married the love of his life Cordilla (nee Campbell) in 1960 and was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather.
He retired from Bendix in 1982 after 32 years of service. After retirement, Dale continued to work for another 30 years managing his own lawn care business.
In his leisure, Dale enjoyed taking his family fishing, attending antique car shows, telling jokes, and spending time with his grandchildren.
Dale is survived by his wife of 61 years, Cordilla; his three children Victoria, Dale Jr. and Kimberly; grandchildren Kristina, Ashley, Michele, and Ryan; great-grandchildren Eva and Lucas; as well as a brother John Jr and sister Rosemary.
He was preceded in death by his grandchildren Bianca and Christopher Herwig; parents John and Margaret Herwig; as well as several siblings.
Dale was a once-in-a-lifetime man who left an impression on all who knew him. Although he has gone, he will live eternally in his stories we share, in his jokes we retell, and in our hearts for which he is kept.
Private family services will be held. Wyers-Bollinger Funeral Chapel is assisting the family.
