Dale was born on July 3, 1959 in Sturgis, SD to Nathan and Mary Ella Hayford.   He graduated from Sturgis High School in 1977 and attended Western Dakota Vo-tech shortly after.   After school, Dale pursued his career at the sawmill in Spearfish where he spent 38 years before he retired in 2022.    Dale was a member of the Belle Fourche Volunteer Fire Department for ten years.  Through the sawmill and Fire Department he met many great friends that held a very special place in his heart.
