On September 7, 2019, Dale Nelson's life came to a peaceful end.
Born in High Prairie, Alberta on January 30, 1935, he leaves behind and will be greatly missed by his loving wife Barbara, of 61 years.
He grew up in Edmonton and then attended the universities of Idaho and Washington, where he met and married Barbara on September 26, 1958. Returning to Canada in 1960, they lived in Medicine Hat, Alberta, where Dale worked at CHATTV, first as a weatherman then as Program Director. In 1963, they moved to Lethbridge, where Dale assumed the position of Program Director at CJLH TV. Two years later it was on to Winnipeg to join the CBC as TV Producer-Director, and in 1970, as Director of Television Programming. He was always thankful for all of the friends and associates he was privileged to work with throughout his career. In 1972, he left the CBC, but continued to be engaged in independent TV production, as well as television programs for the Western Canada Lottery Corporation. Retirement in 1991 was a pure joy as he and Barbara then travelled the world each year, as well as spending time with their family and friends in Seattle and Edmonton.
According to Dale's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal funeral service.
