Dale was born May 22, 1960, to John G. & Lila "Faye" (Riggs) Schmidt in Kearney, Nebraska.  He grew up in the rural Franklin area and graduated from Hildreth High School.  He was baptized as an infant, confirmed as a child, and baptized again as an adult.  Dale married Tammie Carr on June 12, 1982, and they had one son, Travis John, (whom after they departed ways), was adopted by his stepfather, Jim Binderup.

Dale married Barbara Toyne on May 5, 1990, and to this union, they had two sons, Thomas Dale and Raymond Edward.  Dale was blessed with a bonus son, (of Barb’s) adopting, Jeremiah David.  Dale was active with the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.  When Dale & Barb moved to St. Paul, Dale drove truck until his health forced him to stop.  He had worked at Jim’s Champlin Truck Stop, for many years until his death. He enjoyed visiting with the customers, fishing, and spending time with his granddaughter, Lily.
