Born March 13, 1931, Dale was the last surviving child of the late Francis and Luella Yoset Hamilton.

He attended Wayland schools.

During World War II, Dale wanted to join the Armed Forces as three of his older brothers had, but he was convinced that his patriotic duties were to use his talents by farming. Dale was the fourth generation to work and eventually become the owner of the family dairy farm.

Dale married Lucille Mercier 60 years ago; she survives. She has been his beloved wife, soul mate, partner and the ideal farmer’s wife. He is also survived by his eight children, sons Joseph and his wife, Debra (Shesky), Gerald and his companion, Sherry Parker, John and his wife, Laurie (Allen), James and his wife, Linda (Stafford), his daughters Debra (Debbie) Hamilton, Rose Ann and her husband, Douglas Gordon, Lucetta (Lucy) and her husband, Bill Chase, Bonita (Bonnie) and her husband, Bob Stein; 18 grandchildren, Shawna and her husband, Matthew Terry, Cassandra and her husband, Dan Sprenkle, Corey Hamilton, Christopher Gordon and his wife, Jen Seeley, Joshua Gordon, Arin Callahan, Kim and her husband, Tyler Lippert, Alicia and her husband, Steve Hovis, Julie Hamilton, Melissa Hamilton, Ryan Hamilton, Ashly Woloszyn, Amanda Hamilton, Andrew Hamilton, Jennifer Chase and her companion, Adam Chinn, Matthew Chase, Caleb and Gabriel Stein; 10 great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and many grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Dale goes to be with his deceased parents, Francis and Luella Yoset Hamilton; his brothers, Audrey, Paul, Jesse, Walter (Tom), Waid, Albert and Martin Hamilton; and his sisters, Eunice Watson and twins Jane Prenatt and Joan Kiser.

Dale was a lifetime member of East Mead Volunteer Fire Department, serving many offices ranging from member to fire chief. Dale served the people of East Mead Township for more than 25 years as a township supervisor and as member of the township’s planning board. He also served on many boards throughout the Crawford County’s agricultural community. He did custom work for many Crawford County farmers.

A lifetime Roman Catholic, Dale was a member of Sts. Peter and Paul, Pettis Corners, and of St. Hippolyte Church, Frenchtown.

Calling hours are today from 1 to 3 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Stephen P. Mizner Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc., 404 Chestnut St., Meadville.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday at 11 a.m. at St. Hippolyte Roman Catholic Church, 25997 Route 27, Guys Mills, with Father Daniel Prez, pastor, as celebrant.
