Dale was a good friend and the most laid back outdoorsman ever in the history of NB. I swear, if his beard was on fire, he wouldn't get excited.
He wasn't terribly active on this forum but his fly-tying advice and his flies were appreciated by anyone who enjoyed the benefit of them both here and in the real world.
He will be missed.
Dale S. Sutherland, 57, of Dover, passed away peacefully at his residence on Tuesday, August 24, 2010. Born in Moncton, he was the son of George S. and Shirley J. (Dobson) Sutherland of Dover. Dale was a mechanic and truck driver and a member of Highfield Baptist Church, the NB Salmon Federation, NB Hunters Association and a former member of the Dieppe Fly Tying Club. He was an avid outdoors person and fisherman and he enjoyed fly tying, working on his computer and spending time with his family and friends.
In addition to his parents, Dale will be sadly missed by his wife of 27 years, Darlene (Hicks); brother, Dannie (Cathy), Dover; niece, Amanda; nephew, Bradley; grand niece, Teagan; grand nephew, Hunter; special members of the family, Ruth Dobson and Emily Dobson of Stittsville, ON; several aunts, an uncle and cousins.
