Our precious Leslie Roy Dale, born April 30, 1929 in Kingston, Jamaica to the late Keturah Johnson and Arnold Dale, went home to the Lord June 15, 2020.
He began as a Foreman and then started his own construction company on two continents (U.K., USA). As a successful business owner, expert carpenter and builder for over 60 years, he was known for his attention to detail and skill. He always put his family first; he never met a stranger; he taught his children and grandchildren the value of hard work and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was the HERO in our family.
Preceded in death by his loving wife, Tetley Dale and beloved son, Garfield Dale.
He leaves to cherish his loving memory: daughters, Jennifer Dale, Jackie Dale; son, Glerick (Debra) Dale; grandchildren, Delroy (Brandy), Reginald, Brittany, Andre, Brandon, Brandi (Jerome), Martell and Jasmine; great grandchildren, Breauna, Shyanne, A’Marie, A.J., Cameron, Hosea and Elliot; niece and nephew, Theresa and Tony, both of Dayton; extended family, Harry, and Caren; a host of other relatives and friends.
