SANDE _ Dale Richard 1941 - 2007 It is with great sadness that the family of Dale Sande must announce his passing. He passed away unexpectedly on September 14, 2007 at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary at the age of 66 years with his son by his side. Dale was born in Coronation, Alberta on September 3, 1941 and lived most of his life in Edmonton and Calgary. He worked in radio and television broadcasting for many years and later had a successful career in sales, most recently with Artistic Impressions of Calgary. One of Dale's greatest joys in life was playing golf, organizing an annual golf tournament for many friends and family. After over forty years of playing the game, he finally got his first hole-in-one last year. For many years, Dale volunteered with the Mac's Midget Hockey Tournament, helping with media relations. He will be remembered as a kind and loving father and grandfather, brother, and friend. Dale will be deeply missed by all of us. He is survived by his brother Edwin (Bertha); sister Mildred; brother-in-law Terry; sister-in-law Betty; sons Warren (Marilou) and Kelly (Tricia); grandchildren, Heather, Lori, Emma, Jordan, Carter, and Kyra; and numerous nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service will be held at PIERSON'S Forest Lawn Chapel (4121 - 17 Avenue S.E.) on Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated ( www.heartandstroke.ca ). Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family at www.piersons.ca . Arrangements entrusted to PIERSON'S FUNERAL SERVICE. Telephone: 235-3602.

Dale you will be missed. Hope the new news director will give you a chance to shine again. You were at home behind a news desk and you will be remembered in the old 930 CJCA airchecks.

The Edmonton Broadcasters Club reports that Dale worked at CJCA and CITV Edmonton. CalgaryBroadcasters.com reports that he did Sports at CFFR (66-CFR) and CHQR Calgary.

I think Dale also had a brief stint doing 2&7 CFAC television's Newsfirst's weekend sportscasts.

Several of us would be interested if anyone could give some dates, even as general as "mid-'80s" for Dale's presence at any station.

So far, we have him at CJCA, CITV-TV, CFAC-TV, CFFR and CHQR, doing Sports on the latter three, and News on CJCA. Anyone know what he did at CITV?
