Dean M. Dale, 54, of Corfu, NY passed away unexpectedly on September 21, 2017. Dean was born in Dansville, NY on November 23, 1962 to the late Ronald and Patricia Dale.

He loved being a Dad, Papa, uncle, cousin and best brother. Dean was an avid outdoorsman with a passion for hunting with Mark and fishing with Auggie. He was a lifelong Buffalo Bills, Sabres and NY Yankees fan. He enjoyed spending his Sundays watching football in his recliner with his 3 best buddies Jack, Bang and Spike by his side. He enjoyed fishing, going to Sabres and Bills games and eating wings at Duff's with Lindsay. They shared a lifelong love of animals. She may have learned dog rescue from him. He enjoyed working with the horses, eating Crosby's pizza and watching Thor and Swamp People with Emily. Dean loved being a Papa to Collin playing Nerf wars, jumping on the trampoline, wrestling and watching Monster Jam. Dean enjoyed working with standard bred horses with his family and friends for many years. He spent many a trip in the back of a truck or trailer going from track to track to make it easier for his Mom and Dad. In more recent years he enjoyed traveling to visit Tim and Melanie in Florida. Swimming in the pool and fishing in the gulf. Dean and Tim have had many adventures over the years most recently fishing, playing poker and floating in the pool just hanging out together as only brothers can do. Dean enjoyed spending time with Robin and her family. Always being a huge part of any celebration. He would willingly wear party hats or do any nonsense to make the holiday fun for everyone. He also could be counted on to help do anything that needed to be done and was often seen hanging precariously from tree stands to help get ready for deer season with Mark. He found a new passion working as a radiology technician at UMMC in Batavia. He loved his coworkers and the patients he cared for. He enjoyed wearing his Super Hero Scrubs for the enjoyment of the "kids". His biggest gift was his big heart always willing to help. He worked hard and played hard.
