Default Dealing with the loss of our friend Dale

A few of us ifishers just lost our best friend of more than 30 years to a battle with hereditary heart disease. Dale Hert (X-man on ifish) was only 44 years old and leaves behind a wife, Sherrie, and three daughters, Kylie, Taylor, and Jordan, ages 2 to 10. Please pray for this family- and if you don't mind, please pray for me, too as well as Dennis Larsen (wreckless), Gary Lerwick (Da Wig) and John Aguirre as we are having a tough one right now. An account has been set up at Washington Mutual Bank for Sherri and the girls. A contribution can be made at any branch under the benevolent account of Dale Hert, or labeled as such and mailed to Washington Mutual, 2200 Baseline road, Cornelius, OR, 97113
Thanks for any help or prayers.

Here is a recent goose hunt with Dale, me, and Dennis Larsen



Here is me and Dale back in the 80's with Dale's nice blacktail



Here is what we said at the funeral:

From: Dennis Larsen, John Aguirre, Dave Smith, and Gary Lerwick


This is an attempt at a promise to our friend Dale.

Dale, right now the idea of promising anything seems quite impossible- the idea of taking any kind of action at all while we are still stunned and numb feels out of the question. But for you, Dale, weíre going to do this one thing- itís the least we can do for what you have given us.

We donít need to promise not to forget you- how could we forget you? You are one of the five amigos and by far the one that kept us all glued together and made us laugh at everything including ourselves. You know us well enough to know that we are all outcasts and kind of weird in some ways and just donít have a lot of other friends and donít really make new ones all that well. No one will ever know and understand us like you did and no one will ever have the history and life experiences that we shared. This makes you irreplaceable and in youíre cocky ways, I know youíll kind of like being irreplaceable.

We donít need to promise to keep your legacy alive- thatís a no-brainer. Dale- I guess we can tell you now, you ARE the legacy, you INVENTED legacy. Secretly, we waited for your reaction to everything for us to know what to do and to know what the standard will be in every endeavor. We wouldnít let something like your passing stop this from continuing. We will speculate on what you would do in every situation, and probably pray that God would allow you to give us a nudge of guidance once in a while.

We donít need to promise to be there for your family for anything they would ask of us, no matter what is needed, and no matter when. I know you know this already, but just incase, weíll say it now: give any of us a chance to lay down our lives for your family and we will jump on the chance. We are all so completely elated that you got to experience true love in this world and are so thankful for all of your family and loved ones.

Now for the promise. This is the hard part right now, buddy. You see, weíre completely crushed and honestly wondering sometimes how weíre going to go on without you. If you set all the poetic stuff aside and allow us a moment of honesty, we would have to admit that things could easily go from bad to worse without you around. We could loose our drive and determination to hunt and fish. We could stop taking care of ourselves or, worse yet, we could stop taking care of each other. We could even avoid seeing each other because of the pain it brings for the four of us to be together without you.

Dale, we promise not to let that happen. We promise to stay as inseparable friends, to take care of ourselves and each other, to hunt and fish with as much or more passion than we ever had. To love our own families as youíve loved yours, just like you would want us to. Since none of us have the strength to make this promise without you, we ask that you keep your unspoken promise to us, that you will always be with us through our Lord Jesus Christ until we can all be together again in paradise and in the presence of him that is the very definition of love.

WE LOVE YOU DALE. WE ALWAYS HAVE. I donít know if we ever said it but weíre saying it now. We love you with all of our hearts and always will.

This is really hard to read....I am so sorry. A fantastic family man, friend, outdoorsman and all around great person is what it sounds like by your description of him.

My thoughts are certainly with those that are affected by his passing.

Take care.

Tough times, Dave.
Memories will eventually erase the sorrow, or did with me anyway and knowing you and the company you keep I'm sure you'll always have each others' great memories to share.
Until then, we'll all say a few poems of our own and remember those we've loved and lost.
Thinking of you all.

Dave, what you wrote, so many of us could write about many of our friends. We at Tillamook Anglers are a pretty tight family and we have lost some of our long time volunteers and it really hurts. You never forget, but we do have a way of moving on. Cherish the memories. Jerry

Tomorrow is the one month anniversary of losing Dale and things at our house will never ever be the same.

I met Dale five years ago when I started dating Wreckless. He was a weekly visitor to our house and continued to be one even after we married. Beer and lively conversation were guaranteed when he was around.

Dale was part of my first camping trip with Dennis. Dale made Dennis TEACH me how to bass fish instead of doing everything for me. I also survived "perfect storm" on that trip!! Dale took us for a ride in his boat and proceeded to scoop water into the bow where I was sitting...I got a whole lapful of cold Columbia water and it scared the heck out of me. He and Dennis laughed their butts off while screaming "perfect storm".

I took my first ride to the Sportsman's show in his rig. My son and I were in the backseat when he started swerving and yelling "no brakes". By then I knew better but my teenage son freaked.

Dale was the guy I could count on to help me out when Dennis was in a weird funk. If I had a project that I wanted to do around the house...Dale would help me convince Dennis that it would be okay. Dennis doesn't like change, he would remind me.

Today, a white van turned the corner and for a moment Dennis thought Dale was coming down the street. Sometimes life seems so unfair; losing your Dad and then 13 months later your best friend.

We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

To all - there will be many more of those memories to cherish, probably more than anyone at this moment wants to remember - but remember them. We are all here for such a short time, we impact the lives of those we love and befriend. Be very fond of those memories

Wow, Dave I'm so sorry to hear that.. I remember the days in the Irelands True Value Hardware store growing up chasing you both around as we figured a way to get out of work early to go farm pond fishing for bass... I loved being around you and Dale cause you seemed so much older than I and it was cool to hang out with you two and think about fishing.

Dad and mom will be so sad to hear about this!! My deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your best friend. Please pass on love to Dale's family on our be half!! ray

I could tell Dale stories for hours, no DAYS!!!! Most would be appropriate for this site (some would NOT!!)

Dale & I met through Dave when they were still both in high school, 25+ years ago. The three of us have camped, laughed, hunted, fished, laughed, drank, surfed, chased girls (long ago), and generally had a good time, from Baja to Alaska. Dale's favorites were the high lakes above Bend especially Big Lava, Little Lava & Crane.

He was a good & LUCKY Blacktail hunter, a great (& again LUCKY) fisherman for whatever he targeted from Bass, Salmon & Steelhead to Dorado, Tuna & Roosterfish!!! He was SO looking forward to TUNA! fishing this year with Ben (Pingjockey). Dale, I'll think of you every time I let out that UGLY red/white cedar plug

Before his family grew, Dale & I used to hunt Ducks almost every weekend. It got to the point where we didn't even need to say, "Take 'em" when the birds were settling into the dekes, we just came up together and BAM!!!!!

The Goose hunt in in the above pic was one of his last waterfowl hunts and it was GREAT!! Thanks Dave!!

Dale will be missed, he was one of my "brothers" in EVERY sense of the word. It's been tough. We were drifting the Wilson on Sat (thanks John!!) and within five days of that he was gone...................DAMN!

Well Dale......It's Friday and normally you'd be stopping in for happy hour..............Cheers

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. It always amazes me to know how many people are involved in life changing events every day of the year and yet they come together, care for each other, and continue on. It can be difficult to do but when you have people that love you to help it can be done. My prayers are with you all.

I just want to say THANK YOU for all the prayers that everyone has sent to us. It has been a very hard time for all of us. Dale was the kind of friend that only comes around once in a lifetime. As for Dave, Dennis and John don't forget, I'm there for you guys 24/7. The great thing is that we still have Sherrie, Kylie, Taylor and Jordan. They are just as much a part of Dale as he was. Once again thanks to all the IFISHERS for all the prayers and thoughts and any contrabutions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

I didn't see this before today. I'm deeply sorry for your loss. It's obvious you really were brothers - - having just lost one of mine at a way-too-young-age, I really do know how you are feeling. 'Heartfelt and best wishes to all of you and to Dale's family. Don

A dear friend of mine lost his son at about that age. His son, though leaving at such an early age, will always be young to him.

A tiny consolation.
