My thoughts and prayers with you and your family on this day. Your father was a great man he will be greatly missed.

To the Family of Dale Rowe,
The Ege family offers its condolences. Bob, John and Ed have known Dale for most of our lives. Our parents, Wilber and Audrey thought highly of him and Mom always kept us informed of “Rowe” activities. I mostly remember him as a loyal friend to my parents, a person who had knowing eyes that twinkled before he laughed. I remember and respect him for his unquestionable love and devotion to his lovely wife, Gwen. My thoughts are with his children and their loss. Please use your Dad’s strength, love and memories to help you see you through this time of mourning.
I worked with Dale at Alexander & Alexander in the 1980’s for 8 years. He also got me to play on the MRQ golf league that he was the head of for many years. .He was a super friend and I will miss the discussions we would have at the “Good Guys” lunch once or twice a year. Dale was an active Catholic and was a man of faith. May God rest your soul Dale as I know you are with our Lord.
Our sincere sympathy in the death of your father. He and your mom were wonderful people, but you know that. Gwen was a relative of Tom’s. Tom’s mother was Esther Boyd Hornig (1921-2004), and grandmother was Mary Snider Boyd, born in 1890 in ND. She was a step-sister to Gwen’s mother or grandmother–Anna or someone else? I’m not sure. I gave your mom a book of the Snider/Tzabo family history a few years ago.
