Dale Ernest George

On Wednesday, March 29, 2023, Dale Ernest George, loving husband and father, passed away at age 66 in a Minot, N.D., hospital with his loving family at his side. He had been struggling with COPD for the past several years.

Dale was born on May 20, 1956, in Powell, Wyo., to William Dean George and Joan Carol (Shelby) George. Dale spent his childhood in Basin, Wyo.,  and most of his school years in Glendive, Mont., where he graduated in 1974. After graduation, he worked many oilfield jobs until 1984 when he moved to Thermopolis, Wyo., and started work for Fred Hanson at Fred Hanson Construction and Canyon Concrete which started his passion for the concrete business. Dale later realized his love for flying planes and firefighting which took him all over the country. Dale made many longtime friends wherever he went with his jokes and straight- forward honest approach to life.   

Dale met Teri in 1994 in Townsend, Mont., on one of his many firefighting adventures. He gained two sons and a daughter. Later that year, they welcomed another son to their blended family. Their adventures together led them to Wyoming for several years. They finally made their way back to Montana where they settled when Dale took a job at Sidney Red-E-Mix where he stayed until ill health forced his retirement.

Dale enjoyed driving Hercules (his cement truck), volunteering at the local fire department and watching FOX News. Dale was known for his political t-shirts and his many quick-witted jokes.

He is survived by his loving wife, Teri Jo George; son, Seth (Riann) George; daughter, Shannon (Vic) Smith;, son, Shane Bucy; son: Shawn (Lacee) Bucy; granddaughters, Shaylyn, Skylar and Abby Smith; great granddaughter, Henlee; niece, Christie Ebel and family; and his two favorite fur babies, Willie and Waylon.

Dale was preceded in death by his father, William Dean George; mother, Joan Carol Shelby George; and brother, Donnie George.

Dale's Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. If you are a damn Telemarketer please hang up and don't ever call me again.
