    Dale received a heart transplant (#106) on July 25th, 1992 at the age of 46 which allowed him to live a full and active life. This gift of life gave 26 additional years to all that loved and knew him. Dale was a wealth of knowledge and always had an answer for everything. He had a gift of striking up conversations with anyone and loved to talk about farming. He enjoyed many hunting trips, traveling with his wife, camping at tractor shows and spending winters at his home in Florida. He was an avid collector of tractors and antique farm equipment.

He was also employed at the Camp Hill State Corrections Institute, and the Newville Borough Water and Sewer Authority. Dale owned and operated his own water treatment business for 52 years and his customers became friends to him. Dale has been Township Supervisor and Road Master as well as the Judge of Elections for Lower Mifflin Township.

    Dale had many titles, but his favorite was Dad or Pap. He was very proud of his children: Tracy Barrick (and wife Lisa), Tonya Miller (and husband Shane), Tina Jones (and husband Albie), Todd Barrick (and wife Shannon) and Tara Mainhart (and husband Eric). He adored his grandchildren: Ashley Hosfelt, Madison and Makenzie Miller, Alyssa, Brandon and Bailey Jones, Trevor and Makayla Mainhart, Cassidy, Sydney and David Barrick.
