It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Dale Albert Moulton of Alix, Alberta, on Friday, 22 February 2019, at the Lacombe Continuing Care Centre.  Dale was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario on 26 November 1942.  
Dale’s parents moved back to Hoosier, Saskatchewan in 1944 to take over the Thompson (Dale’s grandparents) family farm.  Dale took over the family farm at age 19 after his father’s passing.  After acquiring his private pilot’s licence in 1966, Dale purchased a Luscombe plane for crop spraying, and also flew for pleasure as flying was one of his passions.  
Dale married Rena (Slater) in 1967 and they had 3 children - Audra, Garry and Greg.  Dale and Rena had a mixed farming operation at Hoosier.  The family moved to Alix, Alberta in 1979 to pursue Dale’s life-long dream of being at the heart of the cattle industry where he would focus on the growth and development of his Charolais herd.  Dale and his family were actively involved with the farm and breed promotion; including annual bull sales at the farm, production sales and cattle shows throughout western Canada.  Dale was active on the board of directors of the Alberta Charolais Association for several years and was honored with the Alberta Charolais Association Breeder of the Year Award in 1987 and the Pioneer Award in 2013.  Dale and Rena met, and did business with, many people from around the world throughout their involvement in the cattle industry.  Dale was always an entrepreneur. He and his brothers, Don and Vern, established Bar Diamond Farm & Ranch Supplies, a local farm and feed supply store, in Alix, Alberta in 1984, which remained in the family until 2014.  
Dale suffered a traumatic brain injury on 1 April 2008 in a farming accident.  He spent several months in rehabilitation therapy at the Halvar Jonson Centre for Brain Injury, then was able to spend three years at home before requiring further assistance.  Dale’s inner drive and strength of character served him well during the many health struggles of his last ten years.  He remained strong through many trials and is now at peace.  
Dale is survived by his wife Rena; daughter Audra and grandsons Dustin and Wyatt Horvey; son-in-law Wes Horvey; son Greg (Renee) and grandson Lucas; brother Don (Elaine); brother Vern (Setsuko); mother-in-law Vera Slater; brother-in-law Barrie (Delphine) Slater; as well as nieces, cousins, great nieces and great nephews.  Dale is predeceased by his parents, Ross (1961) and Dora (1995) Moulton, son Garry Moulton (1994), father-in-law Alec Slater (1997); sister Joan Armstrong (2008), and grandson Blake Moulton (2014).  Dale will be greatly missed by the many friends and family whose lives he touched.
The family would like to thank Misty Paterson and team at Royal Oak Village, Lacombe, AB., Dr. Ken Smit, Dr. Olivier and staff at Lacombe Continuing Care Centre, and a special thank you to Bente Newbury, a long-time friend and compassionate care giver.
Donations may be made in Dale’s name to the Halvar Jonson Centre for Brain Injury (Centennial Centre), or a charity of choice c/o Stettler Funeral Home & Crematorium, P.O. Box 1780, Stettler, Alberta T0C 2L0

Dear Rena, sorry I have not called you, I was busy with Hoss moving into Long Term care at the hospital. Hoss is liking it there. We both send you our sincere condolences on the loss of Dale. I know this is hard for you and your family, however, now you have that peace that he will not suffer anymore. We are also sorry for not being able to attend the memorial for Dale. All the adjustments you now need to make. Rena if you feel up to sometime please give me a call okay. Then we can discuss some more. Gosh we have know Dale and yourself for a long time. I know that Hoss and sometimes myself always stopped in the store in Alix. Hoss always had a story to tell. You take care. Sending hugs, with love, Ena and Hoss
