Dale was born on February 17, 1957, in Mayfield, KY, to Aaron Baxter and Reta Watson Herren. He married Karen Jean Roberts in Ft. Worth on September 30, 2005. Dale worked for some 35 years at BAE Systems Commercial Electronics in Aftermarket Sales and Services, where he had many friends there who loved him dearly.
Dale was a very happy, kind and loving man who was rugged and manly but also very tender-hearted at times. He loved his family most of all, his children and his grandchildren and he always had a continuous smile. He loved spending time with his wife, whether it be in the kitchen cooking or at the lake fishing, or camping in their trailer before moving to Emory. He loved his babies Charlie, the Golden Retriever, and Tobie, the Pomeranian, his 4 legged-babies. He also enjoyed deer hunting and working out in his yard as well. He enjoyed Christian music and it always touched his heart. He was a hard-working, happy, loving man and he was loved by all who knew him and he will be missed greatly!
