Born to parents John and Lola on October 13, 1945 in Wichita, KS, Dale passed away on July 29, 2017 in his home town of Wichita. He was a systems engineer for IBM, Businessland, and LSI as well as a former Sonic Drive In owner. While Dale was a reserved man, he was unendingly patient, polite, and caring. He could often be found building something, from model planes to a deck and a gazebo for the backyard. This love for building gave him the ability to fix anything and he loved working on and driving sports cars. Since he drove a lot for work, and for fun, he could tell you the amount of time it would take to get anywhere, down to the minute. Amidst all his projects, Dale still found time to enjoy his car magazines, non-fiction books, and gardening. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister, Norma Jean Day, and beloved pet, Patches. Dale is survived by wife of 52 years, Sherry; son Brian Bonewitz; daughter, Debbie (Michelle) Bonewitz; and beloved pet, Coco. He was a brilliant man who will be dearly missed. Funeral services will be held 10 a.m. Thursday August 3, 2017 at Resthaven Mortuary. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Kansas Humane Society.
