Elmer Dale Solomon

Our beloved father, Dale Solomon, passed away peacefully on Aug. 26, surrounded by his family. Dale was born on June 27, 1929, to Carl E. and Minnie M. Solomon in Windsor, Colorado. He graduated from Timnath (Colorado) High School and attended Colorado State University.

After, Dale lived between Windsor and Timnath, and also in Evans. He also lived in Seattle, working for Boeing Airplane. He then returned to Fort Collins, Colorado, where he worked for Forney Arc Welders and then worked for Woodward Governor for 18 years. He then pursued his dream and bought a ranch north of Rawlins.

He went on to work for Amoco Oil Company in Bairoil, then later transferred to Evanston, where he retired.

Dale married Alberta R. Hartung on Aug. 17, 1952, in Fort Collins, Colorado, and they were blessed with three children: Rodney, Dean and Caroline. They had many wonderful years together and great memories. They later divorced.

He then married Christene L. Fearnot on Sept. 2, 1983. They lived in Evanston, and had many great winters in Beaver Dam, Arizona, to get out of the cold Wyoming ones.

Dale loved rodeos, the ranching and farming life, was a great mechanic, and really loved to fish, hunt and camp.
