Dale Otho Allred was born September 12, 1944, in Holladay, Utah to Owen Arthur Allred and Vera Joy Cooke. He is the fifth of eight children born to Owen and Vera. Dale was preceded in death by his oldest brother Dean Owen Allred, sisters Lorna Lucille Allred Barlow and Fern Athlene Allred Bronson. His other siblings; Larry C Allred, Steven M Allred, Jay W Allred and Kristyn Allred Decker are still living.
Dale had many more brothers and sisters from subsequent marriages. On June 17th of 1972 Dale married Patricia Ann Bundy in Pinesdale, Montana. Dale and Patricia, or Trish as she liked to be called, were never able to have children although they very much wanted to. Dale was the kind of man who could and would be a father to any child he met. He loved children very much no matter who they were. Dale loves his Father in Heaven and his Savior more than anything or anyone and the Gospel was his work in this life. He has always been very faithful and valiant in the work of God, always attended his meetings as often as he could.
Dale had a way of making friends with anyone. He had no guile in his heart. He also loved animals very much. In his later life as he attended senior centers and lived in health facilities, he had many, many friends and people who were constantly telling of how much they love Dale. The last four years or so of his life were quite tough, but he struggled through until he peacefully passed away on December 26th, 2021 in the Intermountain Layton Hospital. He will be greatly missed!
