One of the Builders for Christ group’s greatest asset, Dale was born in Plainview, Texas, on Feb. 5, 1935, to Herschel Brown and Irene Gentry Brown. He proudly served his country in the Army National Guard. He lived in numerous places throughout Texas during his life and for 25 years lived in Mineral Wells. He worked for Central Freight Lines for 28 years, where he earned the distinguished award for 10 years of safe driving. He then became an owner-operator of his own truck for nine years before retiring in 2004. He was a faithful member of Pine Forest Baptist Church in Onalaska, a Lions Club member and probably most notable as a Builders for Christ builder.
