Dale W. Stickley passed away peacefully in his home on December 2, 2016.
Dale was born to Rollie Stickley and Ethel (Holaday) on July 6th, 1943, the youngest of 13 children in Laramie, Wyo., and has lived nearly everywhere “West of the Mississippi,” his favorites being, Emmett and Caldwell, Idaho; Hermiston and Irrigon, Ore., and Clovis, N.M.
Dale is survived by his children Darla Rae Phenix, David Stickley, Deana Davis and Danielle Stickley, 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, as well as three of his sisters, Rose DeChand, Ada Sigman and Zeta Smith, and his brother Don Grubbs, as well as countless family.
He is proceeded in death by his parents, nine of his siblings, cousins, nieces, and nephews and his grandson Christopher Stickley.
There is a memorial in the works planned for Hermiston, Ore. All other plans are still unknown.
Dale Stickley was a Vietnam veteran and suffered, as many do, from PTSD. After many years of self-medicating he finally sought and received treatment. Please, if you or a loved one suffer, seek help.
