Dale William Benson, 59

Dale William Benson passed away on Friday, August 31, 2018 at the age of 59. Dale was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on January 15, 1959.  

Dale was born to parents Elinore (Lynn) and William (Bill) Benson. He married Vicki Benson on August 11, 1979. They have two children: Son, Kaleb (Cassie) Benson and granddaughter, Kendra Benson; daughter, Krystle (Shawn) Bloch and grandsons, Viktor, Thor, and granddaughter, Vivian. Dale and Vicki lived in Montgomery, MN until Dale was diagnosed with cancer.  After that time they moved to the hunting shack in McGrath, MN.

Dale has one brother, Dennis (Lori) Benson; and one sister, Diana (Dan) Sorenson as well as nieces and nephews.  Dale is also survived by many close hunting friends and work buddies.

Dale was an amazing mechanic. He spent his spare time hunting, fishing, and working on anything with a motor.  He was so unique in the way he masterminded a way to fix anything or build something from nothing.   He loved spending time at “the hunting shack”.

His general attitude towards life helped him greatly in his battle with cancer. He fought hard, and he never once complained. He will be remembered by everyone for his loyalty and courage to get through anything.

He was preceded in death by his Grandparents, Gus and Vivian Benson and Elmer and Gladys Ziemer, as well as his father in law, Dale Sawall; Mother in Law, Marilyn Sawall; sister in law, Jill Sawall.

A memorial service was held on Monday, September 3, 2018 at Peace Lutheran Church in Finlayson with Rev. Philip Hoppe officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the cancer research cause of the donor’s choice.
