    Dale was one of the good guys you meet in life. He was smart, fair (as a boss)
    and an overall nice guy. The world is a better place for men like Dale Harris. Rest in Peace my good friend.

    Wishing you and your family my sympathy during this challenging time. Reflecting after 30 years of working in the newspaper industry; realizing that when I worked under Dale’s leadership… and remembering the good old days. Appreciate things a lot more….once there gone! Rest in peace!

    Our deepest sympathies during this difficult time. I enjoyed working with Dale at the Omaha World-Herald, planning his retirement party in 2000, etc,,,a lot of good times and memories. Dale set up the annual holiday lunch gathering with former classified advertising employees (Terri Campbell, Joan Miller, Mary LeRoy) and myself. Rest in Peace Dale…you will be missed.

    Dale was truly one of my favorite uncles. Even though he loved the Huskers and did not mind beating Iowa or Iowa State we always had great conversation discussing football. Dale was always easy going and easy to talk to, about any thing. I loved our pheasant hunts in South Dakota with Dale and my older brother Ron, I am not sure what Dale thought of that group but is was truly a great time. Dale will be missed by eveyone he touched in his life, the good news we all have great memories that bring smiles to our faces. Rest in peace my friend.
