Dale will be lovingly remembered by his wife Nathalie and their four children, Gabrielle, Cadence, Riley and Dalton; his parents, Norbert and Hortense; two brothers, Dennis (Tracey) and Daniel (Angele). He will also be greatly missed by his in-laws, Rene Saulnier and Lisa Forest; brothers-in-law, Alain, Donald, David, Philippe and Nathan; sisters-in-law, Diane, Angelique, Isabelle and Marisa; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Dale had a talent for sports; he loved hockey, golf and baseball, he was an excellent pitcher. Dale graduated from Pierre-Radisson Collegiate and took courses at Red River College in mechanics, he was very gifted and spent many years working for both Midas and Cloutier's auto.
Dale was a private person with a gentle soul and a big heart, always ready to help others. He enjoyed bonfires, cooking and having barbecues, and was famous for his Chili's! He also had an open mind and a sense of humour; between UFO's and Judge Judy, you could enjoy any interesting conversation with him! Family, friends and coworkers will remember Dale's unique laugh and his "oh dear".
His greatest wish was to be with his family until the end and to take one last ride on his snowmobile.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Victoria Hospital for caring for Dale.
Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of life will be held on June 29, 2021 at Glen Lawn Memorial Gardens.

Condolences & Memories (13 entries)
My deepest condolences to Norbert, Hortense and all the rest of the Alarie family for the loss of Dale. We were next door neighbors for all of my chilhood, so there are many memories. Playing hockey in the driveway. Having snowball wars across our driveways ducking into our massive ditches for cover! Summers spent at his parents cottage by Winnipeg beach. With me and my 2 brothers making for an odd number, Dale seamlessly blended into our trio to become the perfect quartet. Even though as we became adults, and moved on to separate paths, the house that we lived in to this day, still remains with my extended family. So I would still see him now and again, visiting his parents while I was visiting my family, and sometimes we would find ourselves talking for 20 to 30 minutes without realizing it. So even though we weren't as close as when we were growing up, I will miss those times we happened to run into each other while visiting our families. May he rest in peace. - Posted by: Phil Berard (Friend) on: Mar 08, 2021

My condolences to Dale’s family. I have such fond memories of him growing up. Dale always made me laugh in our classes together. He was always there when I needed him as well. I would call and he’d drop everything. He knew how to lift me up when I was down. Dale would be the first one to offer me help anytime my car broke down. Late night drives with our friends. His laugh has stuck with me regardless how long it’s been since I seen him. So sorry for your loss. Prayers sent - Posted by: Tanya Cretain (Friend ) on: Feb 23, 2021

Hortense, Norbert and Family. Please accept our deepest sympathies to you, for the loss of Dale. We can always remember Dale as a young child coming to our door to call on Marc to play hockey on the street. They were great childhood friends, sharing many good times together.
