We were saddened this week to learn of the death of Dale Wahl of Bremerton, Washington, who was to be a workshop presenter at the 2008 Germans from Russia Convention in Casper.
According to the Kitsap (WA) Sun, Dale passed away on June 13, 2008 in Louisville, Kentucky of pancreatic cancer. Dale served 23 years in the U.S. Navy and retired in 1978. He then worked for Lockheed Martin at the Bangor (WA) Naval Submarine Base. After leaving Lockheed, he became deeply involved in family history and was a member of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society.
Dale is survived by his wife, mother, three sons and a daughter. Our condolences to his family. Here is Dale's obituary from the Kitsap Sun.
