Dale A. Weberg, 64
Dale Allen Weberg, 64, of Red Wing, died of cancer peacefully at home on Friday, Aug. 15.
A generous man who served his family and his community, Dale was born on Dec. 17, 1949, in Plum City, Wis., to Henry and Helen (Schrader) Weberg. He graduated from Red Wing Central High School in 1967. There he met Mary Jane Schlichting, with whom he shared the rest of his life. Dale and Mary were married on June 24, 1972.
Dale graduated from St. Cloud State University and later earned his Master's Degree in Education from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. A committed educator for 34 years, he retired from teaching math at Hastings Middle School in 2005.
After he retired, Dale embarked on a second career in antique furniture. With skill and care, he restored fine furniture to its original glory. Dale and Mary shared an interest in historical furnishings and together undertook the complete restoration of their home, built in 1898. Dale possessed great talents in working with wood, tile, and paint, which he expended in the service of his family and Habitat for Humanity.
Dale was a member of First Lutheran Church in Red Wing, and for 32 years he served on the Christian Action Committee there. He gave his time and energy to the Christmas Project, March Food Share, and many other service projects. He also volunteered with the Lions Club.
Dale found peace in nature and loved fishing. He shared the outdoors with his children through camping trips around the country. Dale and Mary continued to travel in their retirement, enjoying their winter trips to Florida.
Dale was a quietly caring man who supported his children in all their pursuits. He shared a special bond with his cat, Nyssa, who was his loyal companion.
Dale is survived by his wife of 42 years, Mary; his children, Kristina (Scott) Alton of Woodbury, Minn., and Matt (Amanda) Weberg of Grand Marais, Minn.; his grandson, Bern Alton; his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law; nieces and nephews; and many friends and relatives.
Dale was preceded in death by his parents.
